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.

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.

Back-handed compliment? One guest at tonight's garden party told Kate: 'You look much better in person than in your photographs." :-)

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.

I´m not sure if you have to be "prepared" by having watched a Bollywood movie to attend a gala like this! I think it´s refreshingly honest of him and not rude at all. He could have pretended to have seen a movie like this, such as many others would have done, as the screenplays and ingredients of a Bollywood film are more or less similar (boy meets girl, lots of romance and dances).... But, as a dude, he didn´t. To be honest, I know not of a single straight man having watched voluntarily

They both look shattered and fed up. Part of the royal deal is gritting your teeth and getting on with it like you are loving every minute. Not a big ask in return for the luxurious, life long, free ride.

I'm not seeing that....most of the pics show them engaged with what is going on around them.

SPEECH BY THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE

Thank you, High Commissioner, for your introduction and thank you, distinguished guests, ministers, and all, for being here tonight.

Tonight, we are celebrating the links between our two countries. This is the first time Catherine and I have been to India and we have been incredibly impressed to see just how much this great country is on the move, and how India’s dynamism is matched by the warmth and welcome of its diverse people.

I am honoured that we also have a chance, tonight, to celebrate a very happy milestone for the United Kingdom and for my family in particular.

Next week, Her Majesty The Queen, my grandmother, turns 90. I am so grateful to all of you for turning out tonight to help us mark that occasion.

The Queen is very fond of India, having visited this great country three times during her reign. And India of course is the biggest country in the Commonwealth, the family of nations to which she has committed so much of her life’s work. India’s contribution to the Commonwealth is something that is enormously important to her.

As my grandmother’s birthday gives us a chance to celebrate the partnership between our nations, I hope you don’t mind if I take the opportunity to pay tribute to The Queen on a more personal note.

I am incredibly lucky to have my grandmother in my life. As she turns 90, she is a remarkably energetic and dedicated guiding force for her family.

And I am so glad that my children are having the chance to get to know The Queen. George and Charlotte, too, will discover how lucky they are to have such a wonderful great-grandmother – a role model for the rest of their lives.

Now, it is important that everyone here tonight understands that I am here as The Queen’s representative. She may be my grandmother, but she is also very much the boss! And with that in mind, she has given me a message that I am privileged to read out to you all tonight:

MESSAGE FROM HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN

Prince Philip and I send our warmest good wishes to all you attending this special Garden Party.

I am delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been able to join you this afternoon during their visit to your country.

I have fond memories of our previous visits to India. This event today is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the enduring friendship between our two countries, our shared culture and the business opportunities we can create together.

It is with great pleasure that I entrust another generation of my family to strengthen and renew our bonds. Signed, Elizabeth R.

(Message from Her Majesty ends)

Now I can report back to Granny that I have done my duty!

Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, thank you for joining with us to wish The Queen a very happy birthday. Bahut dhanyavaad.
Beautiful words by William to his grandmother.

William did a good job with the speech. I like how even in a quite formal setting as this Garden Party most likely was, he manages to insert personal depth into his words. Its quite endearing I think.
