The National park safari area is in the extreme eastern of India so it was close to Bhutan.

Wow, William and Catherine left their own mark and memories at the Taj Mahal. I love they were able to do this just days before their 5th wedding anniversary too. Beautiful set of pictures of a couple in love.

The headlines back at home will be nice and interesting.

Now, I'm sure someday Harry will take his future wife there.

This is a report from the BBC with a great contribution by the legendary photographer Arthur Edwards. Hope this works - Yes! it does.

Arthur said everything beautifully. The Cambridge's have now made their own memories and, I think, want people to move on from the saddest memories of his mother's life.

I'm personally very pleased with the way my future king and queen have gone about this tour. They've been interested, engaged, polite and friendly throughout. I'm sure HM is pleased too. Well done to them and their team.

William and Kate return to India to visit the Taj Mahal, which was built in 1632 by Moghul Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favourite wife. They have their picture taken at the 'Diana bench'. The bench acquired its name after William's mother, the late Princess Diana, visited in 1992 and was memorably photographed sitting alone on a bench on front of the marble mausoleum.

Did anyone else look at photos from the trip and think of how these parents will share pictures of the trip with the kids? Because my mind went there a lot.
What fun to show your child pictures of you feeding a baby elephant or petting a baby rhino. And what a learning opportunity to show the kids the other children you met in the slums of Mumbai, the wild fringes of Assam, the cricket grounds or elsewhere.
Imagine being able to explain to Charlotte or George who is in that statue at the Ghandi home or how the tiger temple was located where it was? Oh and here are Mom and Dad at that temple holding hands!
I know when I was young, I used to ask my mom about what she wore in old pictures and she would tell me stories of this dress or that pair of shoes. I do hope Charlotte and mommy discuss the Pinkham blue and the Anna Sui wild choice.
And that Charlotte and George get to play with some of those many scarves that Mom and Dad bring home. Because a scarf can be many things and children need to explore that a bit.

With George and Charlotte being so little, the animals are probably going to be what they are going discuss. Maybe pictures of the Bhutan Prince. Why children are living in a slum is probably a bit over George's head right now.

Well as a person raised as a Catholic, people that had less than I did was a really early lesson. The family is about service. I think there are ways to work the theme of service, youth, helping others, etc. into what they say to the kids. Along the lines of "Those baby animals have no mommy - so we help them."
I don't thing (JMO) you don't wait until children are 9 or 12 or 16 to start them on ethical issues. You pick and choose, edit and reveal, depending on age.
But I also think they will discuss the beautiful mountains, the many people, the colors, the lifegiving water, there are lots of positive things they can show the kids though photos, while starting the little minds to wander.

Actually, when I think of the Taj Mahal, I think of it as a monument not only to love, but also to loss. To me, the picture of Diana sitting there with a wistful look was striking as it portrayed her own sense of loss of a love (although at the time we didn't know they'd eventually divorce). Will & Kate together there, to me, have their own special, loving relationship and perhaps this monument served to remind them that love is never to be taken for granted and to make the most of each moment they have to share with each other.

All in all, the trip was a spectacular success but a hectic one. They'll probably breathe so much easier once they're reunited with their kids and get to sleep in their own bed and perhaps have a few days to just unwind. Sometimes the best part of a trip is coming home.

I agree with your entire post, Osipi.

I know they can't wait to get back home to the kids, to their own beds and a little down time. It has been a beautiful and memorable tour for them and us indeed.

The media have noticed that the Cambridge's have been very relaxed and comfortable with the media on this tour.

Hopefully they will be a bit more visible in May. If they disappear until June, it almost 1 step forward, 2 back.

I don't think we will see them until June much if at all. Between Will's work and the kids, I doubt they will venture from Amner much.

I think the opposite. I think they'll be out and about with all the special celebrations going on for the Queen's 90th birthday. Isn't there a dinner planned at Windsor for all the family to attend on the Queen's actual birthday April 21st or is that dinner planned for June?

I do think they'll spend a good amount of time at Amner but also be visible here and there. We'll just have to wait and see.

Agreed. Unfortunately, they have a tendency to disappear for weeks after major tours like this.
