Prince William and Kate visited the Taj Mahal today, completing one of the most anticipated stops of their week-long trip to India and Bhutan.
William, 33, and Kate, 34, toured the majestic landmark and posed for photos. She wore a gold and diamond necklace gifted to her from the Queen of Bhutan and a dress by Naeem Khan, an Indian-American fashion designer.
The duke and duchess’ pilgrimage to the Taj Mahal evoked memories of William’s late mother,Princess Diana, who visited the same spot in 1992. In what has become one of the most iconic photographs of her life, Diana sat alone at the monument of love, as the Taj Mahal is known.
After their visit to the Taj Mahal, William and Kate will fly back to the United Kingdom to be reunited with their children.
The couple started their tour in India, where they spent time meeting with local villagers, going on a safari, attending a gala, visiting national landmarks, and raising awareness around the plight of endangered animals.
