The royal couple looked sweet in front of the Indian “monument of love.”
In their final stop of a week-long trip to India and Bhutan, Prince William and Kate Middleton visited the Taj Mahal and happily posed for pictures. Kate wore a pretty blue and white dress, designed by Indian-American fashion designer Naeem Khan, and a pair of $7 blue earrings that Kate picked up from a souvenir stall during her hike to the Tiger’s Nest Monastery in Bhutan, reports People.
William and Kate’s pics also evoked memories of William’s mother, the late Princess Diana. She visited the same spot in 1992, posing alone in front the Taj Mahal, while Prince Charles attended another event elsewhere in India. It proved to be one of Diana’s most iconic photos because she and Charles announced their separation a few months later.
The Duke of Cambridge understood the significance of this visit and paid tribute on the royals’ website.
The statement read that William is “of course aware of the huge esteem his mother, the late Princess of Wales, is held in India, and he appreciates the iconic status of the images that exist of The Princess at the Taj. He feels incredibly lucky to visit a place where his mother’s memory is kept alive by so many who travel there.”
