Prince William to host Indian youngsters
Britain’s Prince William and Duchess Catherine will meet youngsters from India and Bhutan ahead of their visit to the two nations.
The royal couple will host the event at Kensington Palace on April 6 to enable them to “learn more about the two countries” before they travel to India on April 10.
A message on the official Kensington Palace Twitter account read: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend a reception on 6 April to meet young people from #India and #Bhutan
“The event will allow TRH the chance to learn more about the two countries ahead of their upcoming tour #RoyalVisitIndia #RoyalVisitBhutan. (sic)”
The royal pair – who have children, Prince George, two, and 10-month-old Princess Charlotte – will fly to the Indian city of Mumbai on April 10, where they will begin their week-long visit to the country, and nearby Bhutan.
As well as Mumbai, William and Catherine will visit India’s capital, New Delhi, and Gandhi Smriti, where India’s founding father Mahatma Gandhi spent the last few years of his life.
They will also meet more youngsters in Kaziranga, Assam, and go to the National Park before heading to Bhutan, where they will be treated to a ceremonial welcome in the country’s capital of Thimphu.
The royal couple will then return to India, where they will take in the famous Taj Mahal in Agra on their final day.
