Read about day one of the Royal Tour  here.

Day two of the Royal Tour kicked off with a visit to The Social, a bar, restaurant and collaborative workspace in Mumbai.

William and Kate meet young entrapreneurs in Mumbai

William and Kate toured the space and met with young entrepreneurs from the local area.  They were given demonstrations of various start-up ideas and enterprises.

During the visit, William and Kate were blindfolded and learnt how to type in Braille.  Can you guess which word they chose to type?  George.  Awww.

The Duke and Duchess made their way around the event, taking the time to chat with young entrepreneurs and learning about their various innovations.  During their visit, the couple learned about a project called Startup India, a campaign to encourage new business and discussed how the UK can work with Indian businesses to achieve these goals.

In addition, William took to the stage to officially launch the Tech Rocketship Awards.

The awards are supported by UK Trade & Investment, who wish to find some of India’s best and brightest talent in technology start-ups and encourage them to expand into the UK.  Ten entrepreneurs will win a trip to the UK and be “provided with the best of British expertise and access to capital so that they can launch themselves in the UK, as a springboard for further global growth.”

William and Kate travel to New Delhi to lay a wreath

Next, William and Kate left Mumbai on a plane and headed to New Delhi, India’s capital city.   Their first port of call was the India Gate, where they laid a wreath to remember the country’s war dead and pay their respects to India’s Armed Forces.

Next, the pair visited the Old Birla House, where India’s founding father Mahatma Gandhi spent the last 144 days of his life before being assassinated in 1948.

The house is now a museum, known as “Gandhi Smriti” (translates as “Gandhi Memory”).  William and Kate scattered rose petals in memory of Gandhi and received a private tour of the museum and its grounds, including a spot in the garden where Gandhi regularly prayed.  They were also shown a large bronze statue that represents hope and peace before meeting with local schoolchildren.

Kate’s shoes are by Rupert Sanderson. They’re the Calice pumps in the “pink lady crack calf” style. They feature an elegant pointed toe and a 110mm heel.

    It’s interesting that Kate’s choices are conservative pieces with below the knee skirt lengths! I feel she will continue this trend throughout the tour.
