Touching down in Bhutan to kick off the second leg of their 2016 royal tour, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, seemed thrilled to arrive in the remote mountain kingdom for their two-day visit. The couple was greeted by the King's half-sister, Princess Chimi, and her husband at Paro International Airport on Thursday morning (Apr. 14).
William and Kate, wearing a coat dress by Emilia Wickstead which she previously wore in 2012, seemed in high spirits as they arrived in Bhutan for the second half of their royal tour.
The couple certainly have plenty to look forward to during their stay. Later in the day they are scheduled to have an official welcome by the country's king and queen in the capital, Thimpu, at the former monastery of Tashichho Dzong, which is now used for ceremonial occasions.
The two couples have much in common; both were married in 2011, and Queen Jetsun Pema, 25, was a commoner until she married, just like Kate. She turned down the chance of a honeymoon in favour of a walking tour to meet the people of Bhutan, making her hugely popular.
The world's youngest queen also became a mother for the first time earlier this year.
During their time in Bhutan, which is nestled between China and India, William and Kate will also visit the Tiger's Nest Monastery and attend a formal reception at the Taj Tashi Hotel.
