Royals back from India to celebrate special occasion

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge fed baby elephants and rhinos during a tour of one of the world’s most important wildlife parks.

During their first official tour of India, Will and Kate were only 50 feet away from a rare one horned rhino. The royal couple joked with a village elder that Prince George was to “too naughty” to bring with them. The pair were driven in an open-topped 4×4 on the safari.
They also travelled to a poorer part of Mumbai and were impressed by a boy showing off his dancing moves. William even showed of some fancy footwork with the kids.
On their tour they made visits to the Taj Palace Hotel and, of course, to the Taj Mahal.
A wreath was laid at a memorial to terror victims and the couple met hotel staff who helped to protect guests during 2008 attacks.
They also chatted to children from the slums and members of all the different charities that work to help them.
So, the royal couple can now add the great sub-continent of India to the places they have visited. Previously they have toured to Canada and the USA in 2011, the Far East in 2012 and Australia and New Zealand in 2014.

And of course they got home in time to celebrate Princess Charlotte’s first birthday on May 2.
