Cricket, Bollywood and more: William-Kate's itinerary for their India visit

April 06, 2016 08:27 IST

From cricket to mingling with Bollywood stars, Britain’s Prince William and Kate have a packed itinerary on their visit to India and Bhutan starting on Sunday, April 10.

The royal couple will explore some of the world's most stunning and iconic spots, culminating in a visit to the Taj Mahal just like Princess Diana in 1992.

Ahead of their much-anticipated visit, here is their itinerary and the activities that the royals will be busy pursuing during their trip. 

 

The English might still be feeling the pinch of losing in the finals of the ICC WT20, but cricket is big, almost a religion in India.

On April 10, after landing in Mumbai, William and Kate will head to the famous Oval Maidan where they will watch a cricket match and meet children from slums around the city and charities who work with them.  Photograph: Ian Jones/Pool/Getty Images
