as much as I too dislike sugary article to cover "misfits" of the couple, i fail to see what W&K has to do with the past. It's not their fault, and the colonial history can't be undone. If they want to report on something crical or negative that the press has witnessed or that has happened fine, but this topic seems to pop up whenever there is aroyal tour in former colonial countries.

I agree. It's not their fault and they can't do anything about it!

I'm not saying I don't understand them though, as their suffered past can't be ignore and still bear the consequences, but I think the press should vent out their anger for the imperial times in other contenxts

Yes, ofc I can understand it. But it's like when Crown Princess Victoria was with a holocaust survivor and a reporter asked her about her nazi grandfather. It's just not something she can do anything about and shouldn't have to answer for.

Is the UK press or the Indian press writing these stories.? We know the UK press has an axe to grind with the Cambridges.

I think this time was the indian press, but my post was a general comment. The history usually surfaces on every tour (USA, Asia, Africa), so that's not a surprise.

Rebecca English tweeted that some of the press pack (not all) went on the royal plane to
I'm assuming they did the usual thing and selected press pool reps. Did anyone read anything about who went to Kaziranga?

Most of the press went ahead of the couple to the national park area when they were still in New Dehli yesterday morning. There is bunch of shots on Twitter of various press at the airport, on tour buses. If any press flew with the Cambridges on the govt plane, it would have been the people who coverage the am Dehli events. From her tweets, Rebecca English was there for them leaving on the safari and then moved to the village that they went to afterwards. The safari press would have been mostly camera people/ photographer instead of reporters.

From Press Tweets: as they were checking into the hotel, noticeable earthquake startled the press corp.
I don't know if The Duke and Duchess had yet landed, but it did make me wonder what others in the royal family had experienced noticeable tremblers. Probably Harry while in Afghanistan.

Ah yes one's first noticeable earthquake will live on in most people's minds for the rest of their lives. I've had to deliver safety instructions and comfort more than one terrified person during my lifetime in California.

He also wanted to get a sense of work being done to help young women to achieve their full potential and for men to become more supportive of the women and girls in their lives.
I think this is exceedingly important and it's especially nice to hear that William was the one who requested the meeting to show men that women's rights are not only a "Women's issue".
