After a first day of fun – cricket, football in heels and a liberal dose of Bollywood glamour – it was time to reflect.

Arriving in New Delhi, the capital city of India, today the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge undertook some of the more formal duties required of a traditional Royal tour.

The couple flew in from Mumbai on a private jet they have hired to travel around the country and on to Bhutan.

The cost of the plane will be met by taxpayers but is deemed the only way they can get around the two counties in order to undertake their 22 planned engagements in just seven days.

The party will fly back out of the country on Sunday on a scheduled British Airways flight.

First stop was India Gate, the imposing 137ft high red sandstone structure in the heart of the bustling city which is the country’s national war memorial.

There, William and Kate laid a wreath in memory of the nation’s war dead.

The couple were greeted as they stepped out of their official car by Brigadier Mark Goldsach, FCO Defence Attaché, and Lt Col Simon Labilliere of the Army Air Corps, military advisor to the British High Commission.

The couple walked slowly up to the memorial behind a wreath of marigolds, which they placed at the foot of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

They then stood solemnly as the Last Post was played, Kate repeatedly trying to push down her flapping hair and dress.

On the wreath was a card written by William, which they had both signed, which read: ‘Never forgetting those who had paid the ultimate sacrifice for India.’ William also signed a visitors book.

Before they left, the couple, unusually, posed for photographs against the imposing structure before being whisked off for their next engagement.
