She shops just like Us, too! Kate Middleton, alongside her husband, Prince William, spent Wednesday, April 13, feeding baby elephants — in affordable style.
While visiting the Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation at Kaziranga National Park, the Duchess of Cambridge, 34, wore the Topshop Embroidered Print Midi Dress in a rosy hue ($140, though currently sold out). She accessorized with black wedges and chandelier earrings. As temperatures soared close to 90 degrees, the duchess kept cool with an elaborately coiffed bun.
The mom of Prince George, 2, and Princess Charlotte, 11 months, modeled the breezy design while she and her husband of almost five years fed the center’s young elephants and rhinos with oversize bottles. During their visit, the royals learned that the center cares for young animals who have been injured, displaced or orphaned.
“They were absolutely thrilled and loved being with the animals,” said Vivek Menon, CEO of the Wildlife Trust of India, who joined the couple for their encounter with the animals. “The duchess loved the baby rhino particularly.”
Menon added, “The duke said if he could he would have spent the whole day there.”
Earlier in the day, William and Kate had gone on a two-hour jeep safari ride into the heart of the Kaziranga National Park, which is more than 170 square miles in size and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park is home to elephants, water buffalo, endangered swamp deer, tigers and two-thirds of the world population of Indian one-horned rhinoceroses.
The royal couple are on a weeklong tour of India and Bhutan, and are heading to Thimphu, Bhutan, next.
