This morning, the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge bid farewell to the people of Bhutan before boarding a plane to Agra, India for the final stop of their royal tour.
There was a formal send-off by Bhutanese officials at Paro Airport.
For the departure, Kate repeated the Alexander McQueen white eyelet skirt suit. The Duchess first wore it for the Diamond Jubilee tour of Singapore in September 2012. The two-piece bespoke skirt suit is crafted from a white broderie anglaise (eyelet) cotton fabric. The top features a deep v-neckline, belted waist and cuffed short sleeves. It is paired with a matching full a-line skirt that finishes at the knee.
