Interesting that The Mirror keeps calling her Kate Middleton. I never see Danish newspapers media to Mary Donaldson, Belgian media to Mathilde d'Udekem d'Acoz or Luxembourgian media to Stéphanie de Lannoy. I wonder if this is meant as a snub towards Catherine?

I wouldn't read too much into it. I think its more to do with the everyday reader being able to do a search. Middleton is what she was known as for years before her marriage and people tend to remember that moreso than Duchess of Cambridge. Shorter to type too. This is also somewhat common with Camilla. She's called Parker-Bowles still in many places.

Yeah, I agree. While it annoys me, it's all about site clicks, searchability and stuff like that.

I would bet my left hand that all the dates are set. The only things they said would be told at a later date were visits in vulnable areas and a meeting with an official. Sounds more like security reasons than them not knowing. Also, that is a WAY simplified scheduel you put up there.

^^^I agree that the dates have likely been established long ago but for security reasons the details have been announced at a later date.

I'm agreeing with the opinion that full details aren't being released due to security reasons. Especially after what we've seen happening over and over in the world today, I don't think they can be too careful. Its nice that they're giving us a general overall itinerary yet keeping these high profile people's security as a first priority.

  • Banganga Water Tank (SMILE charity)
  • British Asian Trust/British High Commission gala fundraiser in support of 3 charities

April 11
  • GREAT campaign/Startup India event for young entrepreneurs at The Social (A bar/restaurant/collaborative workspace)
  • Lay a wreath at India Gate
  • Visit Ghandi Smriti museum
  • Birthday party for the Queen w speech by William

April 12
  • To be announced engagement
  • To be announced engagement
  • Private meeting with NGOs
  • Bohag Bihu festival evening bonfire at national park

April 13
  • Tour national park
  • Meet with rangers of Kaziranga, w speech by William
  • Meet with local villagers
  • Center for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation, including meeting with members of Green Hub

April 15
  • Six hour hike to Monastery
  • Reception for British nationals and Bhutanese with strong British ties

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?
