Prior to the photoshoot, Jason Knauf, Communications Secretary to the Cambridges said: “The Duke of Cambridge is of course aware of the huge esteem his mother, the late Princess of Wales is held in India and he appreciates the status of the images that exist of the Princess at the Taj.

“He feels incredibly lucky to visit a place where his mother’s memory is kept alive by so many who travel there.

“Twenty-four 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.”

The Duke and Duchess returned to India on Saturday after spending the previous two days in Bhutan where they went on a mountain hike and took part in an archery competition.
