Kate Middleton looked stunning in a soft yellow-gold Emilia Wickstead dress when she and Prince William touched down at the Paro International Airport on Day 5 of their royal visit to India and Bhutan. The royal couple were given a traditional welcome by King Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck’s sister Princess Chimi and her husband. They are scheduled to meet their royal counterparts from Bhutan, also called “William and Kate of the Himalayas.”

The 34-year-old royal’s Emilia Wickstead dress is a royal re-wear: she had previously worn the dress at the Order of the Thistle ceremony in Scotland in 2012. Her gold coat dress featured a fitted bodice, a seamed waistline, pick stitch detailing and a full skirt. The above-the-knee dress also had long sleeves, rounded collar and button-down detailing.
This time around, the mother-of-two paired the custom-made dress with a thin, matching belt, which showed off her slim waistline. The Duchess of Cambridge looked radiant as ever in the monochrome outfit.
Kate teamed up her look in a pair of matching high heels — LK Bennett 'Fern' pumps. She accessorized with gold drop earrings and carried her LK Bennett 'Natalie' straw clutch bag. Her make-up was apt for the Himalayan region and consisted of her signature smoky eyes, pink blush and matching lipstick.
The duchess’s long brunette tresses were done in her favorite blow dry, kept in a side part and styled in loose curls falling over her shoulders. William, meanwhile, looked handsome in a navy suit, paired with a crisp white shirt and maroon tie. He finished off his look in a pair of black lace-up shoes.
She and husband William seemed to be in high spirits as they arrived in Bhutan for the second half of their royal tour. King Jigme and Queen Jetsun Pema will welcome William and Kate officially later in the day in capital Thimphu. The event will be held at the former monastery of Tashichho Dzong, which is now used for ceremonial occasions.
William and Kate will be hosted by Jigme and his stylish wife Jetsun for a private dinner at their home Lingkana Palace. During their time in Bhutan, the British royals will also visit the Tiger’s Nest Monastery and attend a formal reception at the Taj Tashi Hotel. On Saturday, they will briefly return to India, to visit the Taj Mahal in Agra, before heading home.
