Kate Middleton Continues Style Reign On Royal Tour Of India With Emilia Wickstead, Temperley London Gowns

The Duchess of Cambridge vs. the wind.

Kate Middleton had a "Seven Year Itch" on day two of her first-ever royal visit to India and Bhutan.

The Duchess of Cambridge and husband Prince William, continued on with their royal duties at India's national war memorial on Monday.

However, Catherine's £1,700 cream-coloured Emilia Wickstead frock couldn't hold its own against New Delhi's strong winds, leading to a very Marilyn Monroe-like moment from the Duchess.

As she laid down a wreath at India Gate to honour the 70,000 Indian soldiers who died fighting for the British Army during the First World War, the breeze became an issue.

However, handling the moment with complete grace, the 34-year-old mother-of-two was able to catch the hem of her the short-sleeved dress just in time, keeping calm, cool and collected in the moment.

Now, this isn't the first time the mother-of-two has struggled against the wind on a royal tour. During her visit to Canada in 2011, the Duchess had a cheeky skirt-raising experience with the prairie winds in Calgary as she donned a dainty yellow Jenny Packham frock.

Yet, each time, Kate handles the fashion faux like a pro!

And Kate Middleton fans were also given a rare glimpse of the Duchess without shoes, as she slipped off her heels during a visit to the Gandhi Smiriti museum.

Later that evening, the Duchess changed into an elegant and monochromatic Temperley London Delphia cropped top and skirt for an event that paid tribute to the Queen and her upcoming 90th birthday (April 21st).

For her beauty look, Kate opted to pin back her blown-out locks, revealing dazzling waterfall earrings and nude makeup.

According to the Daily Mail, the Duchess of Cambridge has packed 15 outfits "carefully chosen to give a nod to her host's culture and local style." And we must say, she's pulling out all the stops for her travelling wardrobe!
