Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Royal Tour to Bhutan in April 2016.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were recently in Bhutan after their trip to India. During their two-day visit to Bhutan, their Royal Highnesses received an audience with Bhutan’s King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuk and Queen Jetsun Pema.

The Royal couple took the five hour hike to the famous Taktsang Monastery, also known as the Tiger’s Nest. They lit butter lamps at a Buddhist temple and interacted with the local students. They also tried their hand on dart and archery, Bhutan’s national sport.
