On Day Three of the royal India tour, Kate Middleton visited a centre run by the Salaam Baalak trust in New Delhi.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked gorgeous in a printed £50 red paisley floral print maxi dress from the British brand, Glamorous, that was appropriate for both the occasion and weather.

Kate ditched her go-to wedges and high heels for a pair of crisscross ballet flats. 

Take a look!

Steering clear of high heels, Kate chose a pair of comfortable Russell & Bromley flats for the occasion.

Later, for the meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Kate chose a £785 jade-green lace Desdemona dress by Temperley London.

Earlier, on Day Two, Kate had sported an elegant monochromatic crop top and maxi by the same designer

This was the second time the Duchess chose to tie her hair; she had opted do so for the charity dinner at Mumbai as well.

In the evening, when the royal couple attended the Bihu festival at the Kaziranga National Park in Assam, Kate turned to American designer Anna Sui.

This is the first outfit by an American designer that she has worn during this trip. The £805 floral maxi is from Anna Sui's AW15 collection.

While she has been cautious about repeating her outfits, the same does not apply to her shoes or jewellery. 

Kate chose to wear a pair of Pied a Terre Imperial slingback wedges, something that she has worn earlier as well, with the dress.

At the start of Day Four, for her visit the Kaziranga Wildlife Centre, Kate kept it simple yet stylish with a pair of brown khaki trousers and a white polka-dotted top.

She chose her trusty pair of flats for the safari.

In total, Kate has packed 15 gorgeous outfits for her India tour.

We can't wait to know what she plans to wear in the coming days.
