My heart goes out to the people who have lost relatives and friends in today's temple fire at Kollam.

I love all the pictures I've seen so far. There seems to be something quite magical about the Indian light that gives the photographs a great quality and atmosphere.

Kate looks lovely. She looked especially good swinging that cricket bat, as did William actually.

Love seeing all the Bollywood stars too. Hope lots of money is raised.

It seems to me it was a very good start of this tour! Let's see how it all will proceed!

'The Duke said he hadn't watched any Bollywood movies but he represents the British film industry was and interested in collaboration'

I am speechless - William has never seen a Bollywood movie?? And he even admits to that when meeting his hosts?? How rude and unprepared can you be, it's not that there wasn't time to watch eg a SRK movie, if only because of interest in the industry or the people you are about to meet.

Actually, William is probably like a lot of people that just haven't been exposed to Bollywood yet. Its a cultural thing perhaps. I've heard of it but to be honest, I've never seen any either. I would much rather have someone that can be open and honest about his exposure to something than watch one or two movies just so he can comment on it. Its one thing about William I do admire, he's honest.

Also, I was under the impression that William doesn't represent the British film industry but rather the charitable aspects of BAFTA.

In this case I do believe that honesty is the best policy. IMHO it would be worse to claim that he had seen one and then to be later found out in a lie.

wow - amazing start for the cambridges!

kate so far isn't disappointing. what marvelous choices of clothes she has chosen! she looked obviously tired, but that didn't stop her being her energetic, cheery self. william seems to be more used to travelling and jetlag and looked like despite their long flight he was well rested!

i liked the tweet from the gentlemen who got to share flight with them - what an amazing experience it must have been for him. apparently he was flying business - i must admit i was surprised they were flying business and not first class? if so, all the more credit for them handling a busy schedule after a long flight!

are there any pictures of the arrival? i assume they were welcomed by officials at the airport?

I haven't watched any Bollywood either. But then again I wasn't attending an event put on by Bollywood. There is all this talk about the preparation and study that went into this trip. Watching one Bollywood movie wouldn't have hurt, just to get the feel of it at the very least. He and Kate could have made a date night or two out of it. Curled up with a movie and popcorn when the kids were in bed.

And while his involvement is with the charity side for the major part, Will is patron BAFTA as a whole. That includes the industry side. We have seen him on HP tour and at other film related events. The film industry is a major industry for the UK and is a patronage he could put some more effort into.
