Duchess Kate meets children wearing frock worthy 5k, lunches with PM donning 75k dress
New Delhi: If style, charm, and grace are a parameter of perfection for royals, then the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is reigning over everyone during the ongoing tour of India and Bhutan. The royal couple Prince William and Kate Middleton started their tour on 10th April and ever since then it has been the talk of the town as leading media agencies from across the globe are providing minute to minute details and updates of everything that the royal couple is doing during their stay in India. The couple started their tour by landing in Mumbai, then reached Delhi and will head to Assam before landing in Bhutan and they will end the trip by visiting the Taj Mahal in Agra.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are making the most of their trip by visiting the not-so-common places and doing the not-so-royal things in the country. And, in the midst of all this, the Duchess is grabbing the global headlines with her stunning dresses and equally swift costume changes. On one hand, she is seen playing with India’s vulnerable kids wearing £50 frock and a pair of flat pumps; fast forward an hour or so, she is seen heading for lunch with PM Narendra Modi wearing a £800 lace dress complete with a beautiful formal chignon.
While in capital, the royal couple visited a special facility of Salaam Baalak Trust and Kate looked graceful in her casual maxi dress and her relaxed demure. Here, at this facility, the couple met underprivileged kids who land in the capital to earn a better life and are seen at various railway stations in New Delhi. The Duke and the Duchess met with around 6,000 kids at this facility.
While there, the royals got to know about the hardship that these children have to go through to escape poverty, abuse, and horrible living condition. Many at times, these kids also become an easy target of human trafficking, sexual abuse, molestation, and prostitution. The couple also enquired about how the Trust is trying to identify those children who are most vulnerable and encourage these kids to seek support. Prince William and Kate also heard incidences where the children had to go through inhuman physical tortures by those who want to victimise them and turn them into ‘professional beggars’.
The couple also played carom with the kids and sat on the floor just to have a conversation with the kids who are living in such heart-wrenching condition.
