The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge started Day 2 of the Royal Tour at The Social - a bar, restaurant and collaborative workspace for Mumbai's aspiring young entrepreneurs.
They helped launch the 2016-2017 GREAT Tech Rocketship Awards. which offers ten young Indian innovators a trip to the UK and access to the best of British expertise and advice, with a chance to pitch to potential investors for start-up funding.
The venue also offered an opportunity for William and Kate to meet some young entrepreneurs who demonstrated their innovations.
On day 2 of the tour, the Duchess premiered an ivory/cream midi-length dress from New Zealand-born designer, Emilia Wickstead. The neutral-hued dress, was a simpler choice from the jewel-toned Jenny Packham gown and red paisley Alexander McQueen outfits Kate kicked off the tour in.
The dress is from the designer's Fall/Winter 2014 collection. The fit-and-flare silhouette is enhanced with an exaggerated Peter Pan collar, two faux breast flap pockets and two front slit pockets. The frock was made in Italy using 100% wool-crepe. It retailed for £1,760.
Kate teamed the dress with new blush accessories. We immediately recognized the silhouette of the Mulberry 'Baywater' suede clutch because the Duchess also owns this model in black suede and cranberry suede.
On her feet were a new pair Rupert Sanderson pumps. Today she wore the 'Calice' style in Pink Lady Crack Calf Leather with a 110mm heel.
Completing the outfit were the Cassandra Goad gold 'Temple of Heaven' earrings.

The 42m high red standstone structure is the country’s main war memorial, covering the two world wars, the Third Anglo-Afghan War, and the Indo Pakistan War of 1971.
