After an eventful morning full of events between the cities of Mumbai and New Delhi, William and Kate attended a garden party at the residence of the British High Commissioner.
The swanky reception hosted over 1,500 guests from Delhi’s business, politics, and diplomatic sectors. The attendees gathered to toast The Queen as she celebrates her landmark 90th birthday next week.
During the reception, William delivered a speech paying personal tribute to his grandmother:
“I am incredibly lucky to have my grandmother in my life. As she turns 90, she is a remarkably energetic and dedicated guiding force for her family.”
He also shared a message from the Queen herself, who revealed that she had fond memories of visiting the country:
“I have fond memories of our previous visits to India. This event today is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the enduring friendship between our two countries, our shared culture and the business opportunities we can create together.”
