Kate's cool in cream: Duchess of Cambridge picks £1,100 dress by one of her favourite designers as she and William face 38C heat on second day of India tour | Daily Mail Online

William knew he was going to meet these famous actors, and I consider that he ought to have made a point of viewing a few of the classic and modern Bollywood films before he went to their city and met with the actors and other movie industry figures and I think it was arrogant and insulting of him to not have made the effort. Even one would be better than none. But this is the President of BAFTA who does not go to BAFTA functions even when they are held in the palace in which he has one of his homes, so I suppose we should not be surprised.

This!
How can you meet a legend of the genre (SRK) and tell him you've never watched a movie with him. To me it's arrogance, laziness, being unprepared, not really being interested in the people you are privileged enough to meet.

I don't think it would have hurt William (or Kate) to have seen a couple of Bollywood films released in 2015. William knew he was going to be mingling with actors and actresses from the Indian film industry. It may well have harnessed some extra good will.

That's actually a lovely story. I'm so glad the gentleman got to meet William and Kate last night. It must have been a huge thrill for him. But did you notice his surname? Yikes! It's probably a good thing she wasn't wearing any diamonds.

Have there been Airport photos? The DM reports they are getting about the two countries with use of a private jet. Any pictures of that, or are they skipping the airport arrival ceremonies this trip?
I'm also not seeing pics of the AM in Mumbai? Ah found them buried in the badly written DM article. Odd that they mention all the confetti with no pictures of it?

KP on overdrive for good publicity - but it was nice to see they met with the 93year old man in Mumbai. As many have said William and Kate on tour are a magic combination and they shine but then they are at hoe something just doesn't click as much

I'm not sure about the matter, but it was told that W&K arrived on a shceduled flight yesterday morning in Mumbai. The flight was not private, but was a standard public flight of the British Airways, hence, no pictures for obvious reasons. Today's flight looked indeed like a private jet trip since only KP posted a picture form the wind of the aircraft on their twitter page.

Usually incountry flights are on a government plane. They fly to/from UK on scheduled flights other than when Canada came and picked them up.

Yeah, it was something he and Catherine attended but I thought we would get pictures of it.

william and specially kate are looking very tired during this visit. understandably, i feel for them. i guess showing up a few days earlier, given all the media excitement, is not an option for high ranking royals.

i am not the biggest fan of her white dress, although it is a perfectly nice choice - it's just that kate is always an amazing dresser, so we feel a bit short changed with this one... :)

particularly bad is that none of her field staff warned her of the high winds. not a good pairing with that skirt! i read that for this tour her staff traveled to all the places and even took pictures so that they could choose colours for her clothes that suited the scenery - shame that a detail as the potential for wind was not thought about. a wreath laying ceremony is a serious formal affair, and having kate's skirt flying about or having to hold her skirt awkwardly as she was standing in front of the memorial doesn't look right.

i feel for them having to brave the heat - it must be exhausting, particularly paired with the jet lag.

i wish she would have gone easier on the make up, particularly during the day - to me it looks too heavy. kate is such a beautiful lady, she doesn't need a huge cast of make up to look her best.
