Kate was the epitome of elegance, sweeping her glossy brunette tresses into a chic low bun with a middle parting for the meeting at New Delhi's Hyderabad House.

Showing off her beauty credentials, Kate also gave a subtle nod to one of the season's biggest beauty trends when she chose to include braids and plaited detailing in the chignon, to give the look an eye-catching finish.


It wasn't just the British royal's beauty look which dazzled royal enthusiasts.

Earlier that morning, Kate had opted for a completely different beauty look as she and William met with a group of vulnerable young people in New Delhi, learning about the work carried out by charity Salaam Baalak, which provides care and protection to street and working children in Delhi and the surrounding areas.


There, the stylish royal opted for a laidback chic style, leaving her hair down in one of her trademark blow-dries, with the two front sections pinned back for a striking finish.
