Kate Middleton showed off her sporty side while playing cricket at the Oval Maidan cricket ground in Mumbai on Sunday. She and her husband Prince William arrived in India for a six-day tour. Though it was a nine-hour long flight for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, they looked fresh.

The 34-year-old royal looked cool and stunning in a long pink and green breezy dress by Indian designer Anita Dongre. The floaty boho dress perfect for the balmy weather of Mumbai featured three-quarter sleeves, a high neck and keyhole detailing with a string tie. The Gulrukh tunic dress is a classic composition of Jaipur-inspired motifs in a printed georgette tunic dress, according to Dongre's website.

This patchwork print design is on trend for summer with its bohemian style and is from the designer’s The Love Notes collection. The ankle-length number was cinched at the waist with a pink belt that highlighted the mother-of-two’s slim frame. “She really wanted to wear a local designer at the earliest possible opportunity as a tribute to Mumbai’s wonderful design talent. This dress is a perfect way to do that,” said a source close to Kate.

She pulled off her look in a pair of taupe wedges and Ray Ban aviators. Her Fleur Espadrille Wedge is by Monsoon and featured an almond toe and a rope wedge.

Kate opted for fresh faced make-up for the daytime engagement with her favorite smoky eyes and a slick of pink gloss for her lips. Her long brunette tresses were left loose over her shoulders in a side part and styled into beachy waves and bouncy blowout.

She accessorized with silver filigree chandelier earrings by British high-street brand Accessorize and her engagement ring. Meanwhile, William, 33, looked dapper in a white shirt, navy trousers, dark brown lace-up shoes and Ray Ban aviators. 

The British royals who have left their kids, Prince George, 2, and 11-month-old Princess Charlotte, at home with their Spanish nanny Maria Borrallo played cricket with children at the Oval Maidan, where they met legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and Dilip Vengsarkar.

They visited a nearby slum facilitated by charity Smile, which is located in the Malabar Hill area of Mumbai. William and Kate also visited the Banganga Water tank where they were greeted with a tika.



The couple met children and representatives from Mumbai charities Magic Bus, Childline and Doorstep. Post the meeting, they even went on the famous open-air buses of Mumbai along with the children and their representatives, where they indulged in a long chat.



Earlier during their arrival at the Taj Mahal Palace hotel, the Duchess blended Indian color with British couture as she chose an Alexander McQueen dress paired with a clutch bag by Russell and Bromley. She accessorized with Temple of Heaven earrings by Cassandra Goad. Instead of opting for the Presidential suite of the hotel, Kate and William chose a normal suite.

Meanwhile, Kate and William were introduced to hotel chef Raghu Deora, 41, who was shot in the stomach and leg as he helped guests to safety. The chef cooked a meal of vegetable kebabs and lentil curry with rice, ricotta cheese and okra for their private lunch. Deora said it was vegetarian fare as he was told that they preferred veg food.
