From the start of the day to the very end, their son and daughter were constantly on their minds and in what they were saying. They got a look in on the very first engagement and a big mention in the very last. They might not have made the long trip with their mum and dad but George and Charlotte were very much present on day two.
It all began as William and Kate headed to Social Offline which is designed to be a hub for creative industry, helping entrepreneurs to get their ideas off the ground. It describes itself as an urban hangout combining work and play and the royal visitors got to see several start ups and business ideas taking shape. And among them was a system to help people learn to type Braille. Kate and William both chose to type 'George'.

The couple also had a chance to say thank you to the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel for their stay there and then flew to New Delhi for the next stage of the tour.

On their arrival, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went to India Gate, the national war memorial, where they laid a wreath and paid their respects. The card on their orange flowers read 'Never forgetting those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for India' and was signed, simply, William, Catherine.
And then it was time for a party - and George and Charlotte to take centre stage again. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a garden party marking the Queen's 90th birthday and neither of them could stop talking about their children.
That brought day two to an end - William and Kate have packed plenty in over the last forty eight hours and there is another busy day tomorrow as they head to Kaziranga National Park.
