Dressed to impress for a glittering Bollywood gala, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are tonight gearing up for a charity dinner with a feast of Indian entertainment full of singers, dancers and even a nod to fashion.
Kate dazzled in a beaded colbat blue gown after sticking with one of her favourite designers, Jenny Packham, but the outfit was especially beaded in India in honour of their royal tour of the country.
It was completed by an exquisite matching cape, which she draped over her shoulders, and bold drop earrings, from luxury Indian jewellers Amrapali.
The bodice was embroidered with ornate silver beading matched with a full gathered skirt which trailed along the floor. The Duchess wore her hair in a French-style twist and carried a matching navy clutch while William looked dapper in a black tuxedo, white dress shirt and bow tie.
This evening’s event is being thrown by The British High Commission in partnership with the British Asian Trust – Prince Charles’ charity – and the Taj Mahal Palace hotel, where the Duke and Duchess are staying in Mumbai after arriving in India this morning for a seven-day trip.
