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.

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".

Exactly so, HistoryGirl! It's an important issue for both sexes and the more men who become supportive of their womenfolk all over the world the better!

Of course it´s not their fault. But I guess critics want some sort of excuse, may be included in one of the Dukes speeches, a laying of a wreath for indian victims killed during massacres under british command or somethin´ like that.
This sort of claim has already been raised back in 1997 when The Queen last visited India.

When it comes to the media: I wonder if they´ll still stubbornly call Catherine "Kate Middleton" even when she is Queen...?
I cannot recall any of the other princesses, not Mette-Marit, nor Letizia, Mathilde, Máxima, Marie of Denmark etc. etc. to have been named by their maiden names after their weddings (and for such a long time after it)....!

Yes and don't forget that his brother mentioned the same during his trip to Nepal.

I have to say that I'm pleased to see both brothers supporting this cause on their respective tours.

Exactly. As long as its only women its 'feminism' which seems a swear word in some places. Like feminists are men hating monsters. Its one of the things I love about our new Prime Minister. He has publically called himself a feminist and not been afraid in national interviews to say he stands for everything that truly means.

Yes they are, lots of Spanish articles on Letizia Ortiz even these days or Daniel Westling.

I guess the media have their fun, soon they will go into overdrive at the Maj Mahal, but I dont think that this trip will change the opinion of the ordinary folk on the Cambridges. Most pictures look like straight out of a holiday or doing sporty things, the rest focused on whatkatewore. yes, she misses her children and refused to eat in public. Wills has never seen a bollywood movie, I dont see any enthusiasm especially from him during this trip, and I start to understand why.

William and Kate take jeep safari through the park, they meet rangers and learn about conservation challenges. The young Royals saw a rhino and spoke with park rangers about their resources.

The Duke and Duchess of Camrbridge attended a safari park in India today where the Royal couple fed baby rhino's amongst other animals. Prince William has long been an advocate for the conservation of the Rhinoceros, a species which will may well be extinct in a decade unless further steps are taken to prevent poaching.

I don't know how anyone can look at these pictures/videos and not feel amazed on how beautiful this tour have been so far. William and Catherine appear having the time of their lives with the people of India. The people have embraced the royal couple too.

Don't know how anyone could think of this trip as a holiday. Holidays are when you relax and just enjoy the sun. William and Catherine are working; making speeches, attending meetings, talking to endless people. Not ideal for a vacation.

Prince William and Kate Middleton's India trip: No amount of fawning media coverage can cover up these sordid facts | Voices | The Independent
With a very crowded itinerary for this tour of India, it is next to impossible to extensively focus on one individual part of India's rich history and culture. I did some checking back as I believe that one of the first things W&K did when they began the tour is to remember and pay their respects to the memory of Ghandi who was so very instrumental in winning India's freedom through non-violence.

This was listed as part of their itinerary thanks to post #126 from Rudolph.

Visit Ghandi Smriti (Ghanidi Memory), a museum for Mahatma Ghandi
Tour the museum
