Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Begin Tour of India and Bhutan

BANGKOK Ė Britainís Duke and Duchess of Cambridge touched down in Mumbai on Sunday, marking the start of their six-day royal tour of India and Bhutan.

After landing in the western Indian city, Prince William and his wife Catherine travelled to The Taj Mahal Palace hotel, where they laid a wreath of white lilies at a memorial to the hotelís victims of the 2008 terrorist attacks on Mumbai.

Thirty-one staff and guests were reportedly killed in the attack, which took place at locations across the city between Nov. 26-29, 2008, killing 164 people in total.

The royal couple also spoke with hotel staff who helped to protect guests during the attack, according to Kensington Palace.

The Duke and Duchess are later scheduled to visit Oval Maidan park, where they will meet children from nearby slums playing cricket who are supported by NGOs, and Banganga Water Tank, where they will meet representatives of the NGO Smile Foundation, which focuses on providing skills and opportunities to underprivileged young people and their parents.

They will later visit the Taj Mahal in Agra where Prince Williamís mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, was famously photographed in 1992.

In Bhutan, they are scheduled to meet with King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Queen Jetsun Pema.

The couple were reportedly given travel advice ahead of the trip, after a terrorism alert was issued on Wednesday.

Punjab police reported that three Pakistani terrorists armed with ammunition and a possible suicide belt had plans to target Delhi, Mumbai and Goa, India Today reported.
