Prince William and Kate will pay their respects to India's founding father Mahatma Gandhi when their tour of India takes them to New Delhi.

William and Kate are on a seven-day tour of India and Bhutan which began on Sunday.

During a glittering Bollywood gala dinner in Mumbai William said: "Catherine and I embark on a journey to get to know the vibrant India of the 21st century.

"An India whose traditions, culture and civilisation go back thousands of years, and yet co-exist with an India that is young, creative, entrepreneurial - an economic, cultural and political powerhouse, and an established democracy under the rule of law."

The royal couple will visit the Gandhi museum in Old Birla House where the statesman was assassinated in 1948.

They will follow Gandhi's final footsteps from his humble bedroom to the spot in the garden where he was killed and pay their respects at the memorial that marks the location.

Their day will end with a birthday party for the Queen, who turns 90 on April 21, at the residence of the British High Commissioner.
