Duchess Kate met with children from three local organizations – Magic Buss, Childline, and Doorstep – where she played a game of soccer and a game of cricket. Even wearing her $236 dress, Middleton didn’t hold back.
She was photographed whacking the cricket ball, leaping over the soccer ball, and running in her pristine heels. Prince William got in on the action too, but his wife stole the spotlight. (It’s not his fault he didn’t have the same footwear.)
The couple took an open-top bus tour of Mumbai with children from the local charity, Apnalya. They were also presented with garlands and scattered flower petals in the water in their honor.
Later in the evening, the royals attended the Bollywood Charity Gala to help raise funds for the same groups they visited earlier in the day.
“When Catherine and I were married, India was the first place on Catherine’s list that she told me that she wanted to visit,” Prince William told the gala’s guests. “Two children and five years later, we have finally made it, and we are both honored to be here.”
On Monday, Middleton and Prince William traveled to New Delhi where they placed a wreath on at the National War Memorial at the India Gate to pay their respects to India’s Armed Forces. They later walked in Gandhi’s final footsteps and shared a moment of silence at the site where he was assassinated.
To start the second day of the royal tour, Middleton wore a clean-cut white dress with matching pumps. Her husband wore a navy suit with a sky blue tie.
Monday afternoon they will attend a birthday party held in Queen Elizabeth’s honor, to mark her 90th birthday.
