The Royal couple has been on their maiden trip to India since April 10. They started their trip from Mumbai followed by Delhi and then Assam. And now, we hear there’s going to visit the Taj Mahal in Agra. There is absolutely no reason why anyone would want to miss a visit to the Taj Mahal while in India. However, the sheer beauty of Taj Mahal, one of the world’s seven wonders is not the only reason why the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton will be visiting the Taj Mahal in Agra. The royal couple’s trip to India has been their first trip in two years and the trip was packed with meetings, galas, interactions with locales, one too many luncheons and dinners that made their visit to India the talk of the town!

After spending a couple of days in the neighboring Kingdom of Bhutan, Prince William and Kate Middleton will be back in India only to see the Taj Mahal.

There are various speculations as to why Princess Diana visited this icon and symbol of love, the Taj Mahal all by herself. While some say, Prince Charles had already visited the Taj Mahal 12 years ago, and was busy meeting with certain delegates, some speculate this was the time Princess Diana had made up her mind to get separated from the Prince. However, the photograph of her sitting on a bench at the Taj Mahal made it to the front page of newspapers around the world. So much so that, the bench that had been kept there even before Princess Diana visited Agra, it soon got to be referred as the Princess Diana Bench!

While Princess Diana would’ve loved to have her sons Will and Harry next to her on February 11, 1992, she was very adamant on the fact that the boys don’t miss too much of school! Prince William was 10 years old when his mother visited the Taj Mahal and it holds a special place in his heart. For him the Taj Mahal has memories of his mother that he’d want to be as close as possible to. And just like that, the Taj Mahal proves to be a symbol of love in one way or another. We’re looking forward to Kate and Will’s visit to Agra this afternoon!
