Prince William and Kate Visit the Taj Mahal

The couple are following in the footsteps of Princess Diana.

— -- Prince William and Kate visited the Taj Mahal today, completing one of the most anticipated stops of their week-long trip to India and Bhutan on behalf of Her Majesty's Government.

William, 33, and Kate, 34, toured the majestic landmark and posed for photos. She wore a gold and diamond necklace gifted to her from the Queen of Bhutan and a dress by Naeem Khan, an Indian-American fashion designer.

The significance of William and Kate's visit to the Taj Mahal was acknowledged in a statement on the royals' website prior to their departure.

The statement continued, "24 years on from her visit to the Taj, The Duke and The Duchess are looking forward to seeing this beautiful place for themselves and creating some new memories as they say thank you to the people of India at the conclusion of this tour."

After their visit to the Taj Mahal, William and Kate will fly back to the United Kingdom to be reunited with their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Prince William said he and his wife missed them.

"Massively, of course," he said. "We're looking forward to seeing them."

The royals spent the past days in Bhutan, where they completed an hours-long hike to the Tiger's Nest Monastery, met with the country's king and queen, and tried their hand at Bhutan's national sport, archery.

The couple started their tour in India, where they spent time meeting with local villagers, going on a safari, attending a gala, visiting national landmarks, and raising awareness around the plight of endangered animals.
