REVEALED: Kate, William's visit to India and Bhutan
Prince William and Kate Middleton will undertake the official visit from 10 to 16 April at the request of Her Majesty's government, the week before the Queen celebrates her milestone 90th birthday.
The Duke and Duchess will rub shoulders with Bollywood stars at a glittering reception and dinner being held in their honour in Mumbai on their upcoming visit to India and Bhutan.
It will be the first time the Duke and Duchess have visited either country and they are "very much looking forward" to the tour, a Kensington Palace statement revealed. "The Duke and Duchess cannot wait to meet the people of India and Bhutan," it added.
In India – a country the Queen has visited several times before – William and Kate will pay respect to the historical relationship between Britain and India, but will also focus on understanding India as it is today and will be throughout the 21st century, Indian media reported.
As for Bhutan, the royals will meet their Majesties the King and Queen, who have been dubbed the "William and Kate" of the Himalayas.
On their tour, they will also watch children play cricket and undertake a gruelling six hour hike to the Tiger's Nest monastery in the remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan.
The release of their schedule also confirms rumours that they will visit the poverty-stricken streets of Mumbai - made famous by Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire.
