Kate Middleton Shoots Bow and Arrow, Continues Royal Tour With Prince William in Bhutan
By Rachel McRady
Duchess Everdeen? Kate Middleton continued to delight on her royal tour on Thursday, shooting a bow and arrow at an archery event in Bhutan.
Clad in heels, a blue printed skirt made from traditional Bhutanese material by designer Kelzang Wangmo, and a white printed top, the Duchess of Cambridge tried out the national sport, laughing while she attempted to hit the target. Her proud husband, Prince William, grinned behind Middleton.
The couple touched down in Bhutan on Thursday morning and were immediately greeted by local kids, who lined up on the side of the road. They then traveled to the Dzong in Thimphu to meet the King and Queen of Bhutan. The royals were treated to musical and dance performances from the locals.
This isn’t the first time Middleton has gotten hands-on during the royal tour. Earlier this week she was photographed playing soccer and cricket in her wedge heels with local kids in India.
She also traveled to a national park, going on a safari and feeding the baby animals.
And despite “feeling tremors” of a 6.9 magnitude earthquake in Assam, the royal couple is safe.
"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their party felt tremors from the Myanmar earthquake in Kaziranga National Park," Richard Palmer, a royal correspondent for London's Daily Express tweeted. "Everyone is safe."
