I tried the map thing again. Stops are noted on the map and you should be able to select them and also look at street or earth views.
Day 1 (without location for evening reception) Mumbai https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Chha...18.9560652!3e0

Day 2
There are several Socials in Mumbai -and no location for the Startup India event. So this is the map for the plane to Delhi: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Chha...d28.557024!3e0

Still Day 2 in Delhi: https://goo.gl/maps/pL95uJQVMUp

Day 3, Two UN-detialed stops in Delhi then on to the National Park https://goo.gl/maps/2YVFoDqGZrJ2
Day 4 stops at the National Park: https://goo.gl/maps/naNnPxvy2AM2

April 14, heaven knows where they will fly from but they are flying to Bhutan and have stops all day: The National park to Paro Airport: https://goo.gl/maps/UzGNmeXzrVx Paro to the Capital: Changlimithang Stadium, Chang Lam, Thimphu, Bhutan
And around Thimphu that day: https://goo.gl/maps/muHwjFyn1K42

The Hike Day: https://goo.gl/maps/4rPWi1zMHEE2
The next day, flight to Agra https://goo.gl/maps/4rPWi1zMHEE2
And the rest pf the day: https://goo.gl/maps/E7FCqt8umTP2

Finally - here is the big view of the flights: https://goo.gl/maps/Nps8ovUQfMk

^^^Interesting idea to have an opportunity to meet students/workers from the nation that they'll be visiting soon in addition to the usual pre-tour briefings/meetings. Has anyone heard of this happening prior to a visit from a member of the BRF?

Standard practice for HMQ, Charles and Camilla.

It's a common for both the Queen and Prince of Wales to have people from the country they are visiting living in the UK for a reception prior to a visit. I think it's a new take by KP to do it with young people.

I think this is an indication of how important this tour is.

Some people have criticised the events on the tour but it is the Governments of India and UK that has the main say on this. KP can (and obviously has) made suggestions but Govts decide.

People only see the "oh, these are touristy things, they are fun. Just another holiday!"-part of it. What they don't realize is how much PR it actually is for those locations to have William and Kate show up there. They are there to solidify connections with another country on behalf of the government, and yes, government means much buissness stuff and glitzy stuff because that is where the money is. Yes, local culture (which they will have plenty off) and poor children (which they will visit, as they should) make better photo-ops. But they are not there to play cricket because they adore playing cricket in suits and heels in front of cameras. They are there to shine a light and accknowledge that location, as well as the charities for example. People don't understand the things under the surface.

This tour is more like when they went to Singapore and Malaysia. The big tours of Canada and NZ/Aus. are different in nature because they aren't representing the UK. Instead, they are meeting their future subjects as the future King and Queen.

Quite right. People seem to forget 'At the request of Her Majesty's Government' - William and Catherine's 'wants' come last

India wants to show off their country to the world's media and the UK has many large cultural and security ties to India - Aside from China last year, this is about as an important a visit as it gets. I expect the governments to pull out all the stops

The way I understood the press release, the visit was more a case of William and Catherine getting to know India as neither had ever visited the country.

The best thing a new King William (or a King Charles) can do is -like in all continental monarchies- to use the phrase citizens instead of subjects.

Are you saying that people will running to the travel agency or hurry to the website to book tickets for Mumbai, Delhi or Bangalore because the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited projects here or there?

You can always trace back a rise of economic or travel businesses after a royal visit. That´s nothing new and simply a fact.

Just to show you the British press has a sense of humour. This by a reporter who didn't go the Balkans with Charles and Camilla, didn't go to Nepal with Prince Harry but IS going to India with the Cambridges

Not per se. I'm saying that when someone that are already planning to go to India look into travel plans some names might sound more familiar because of their tour. And therefore someone might look into a place they would not have noticed otherwise.

Especially Bhutan will be put on the tourism map by the visit of K&W. Not many people know about it these days. A friend of mine is going in October and she's pretty excited. It's difficult to get there (there is a limit on the number of tourist) and it's very expensive.

Well, it's true that those "work shy and lazy" comments will completely die down when this official royal tour kicks off. The very popular Cambridge's will be on official duty and that's what everyone wants. Also, with The Queen's 90th birthday celebrations coming up; PR wise, things will back on good footing.
