Kate rings changes in India as tiny dancer thrill royals
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were entranced by the energetic dancing of a three-year-old boy at a party during a romantic fireside harvest festival yesterday.
William and Kate were in Kaziranga National Park on the third day of their Indian tour, spending time at Diphlu River Lodge in Assam.
Kate was in her third outfit of the day, a green patterned dress by American designer Anna Sui, as she sat around the flames with William in a sandy enclosure made sticky by a downpour about half-an-hour earlier.
Despite the tacky ground the women danced barefoot, but it was the little boy - a year older than the royal couple's son Prince George - who moved between a group of dancers and drummers including his father who caught their eye.
"I'm sure they were remembering their little one," said Ranjinee Bhukan of the British deputy high commission.
At the end they sought him out to meet him, and chatted to his dad. "You were very energetic," William told the little boy. "He knows his dancing very well."
Beforehand Kate wore Temperley London as she met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Her £795 jade Desdemona dress with high mock neck, fitted waist and fluted midi hem accentuated with cotton voile pleats is described by the brand as having an "alluring bohemian vibe".
Luxury London jeweller Kiki McDonough confirmed that the Duchess was wearing her £3,500 green tourmaline, green amethyst and diamond earrings. Earlier, Kate was seen in a more relaxed look - a red printed maxi dress. Her £8 bead earrings were from Accessorize.
