Kate Middleton looked stylish in jeans and a white shirt as she and her husband, Prince William, set off on a challenging trek in Bhutan very early in the morning. The royal couple indulged in a trek to the Tiger’s Nest monastery on Day 6 of their royal visit of India and Bhutan. Even after the long hike to see the monastery, the Duchess of Cambridge looked cool in her outfit.

The 34-year-old royal along with husband William, 33, trekked to Paro Taktsang also known as Taktsang Palphug Monastery or the Tiger’s Nest monastery, which dates back to 1692. Kate opted for comfortable and relaxed clothes for the arduous hike. Even after hours of hiking, she looked cool in her casual outfit.
Kate wore skinny jeans paired with a white shirt. She paired her look with a dark brown leather waistcoat by one of her favorite British brands Really Wild and her trusted Penelope Chilver knee-high riding boots. The mother-of-two accessorized with a pair of drop earrings and her sapphire engagement ring. Her daytime make-up consisted of pink lipgloss and smoky eyes.
Kate’s long brunette locks were left loose over her shoulders in a side part and styled into curls, and she wore her Ray Ban aviator sunglasses. William, meanwhile, dressed in chinos, a shirt and hiking boots, was seen wiping sweat from his brow. He also wore a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses.
On the way to their five-hour trek, they were greeted by horses who accompanied them. The royal couple took in stunning views of the Himalayas leading to the monastery. On their way up, they were offered refreshments of water, guava juice, apple juice, mango juice and fried rice.
A Kensington Palace spokesman said that William and Kate were “thrilled” to be visiting such a “magical place.” Even William’s father Prince Charles made the same ascent and even painted a watercolor scene of the Tiger’s Nest when he visited Bhutan in 1998. William and Kate also met three trekkers from San Francisco who were on their way down and chatted with them.
Later on Friday, William and Kate will return to Thimphu and attend a reception for British nationals in Bhutan and Bhutanese people with strong links to the U.K.
