WILL AND KATE TOUCH DOWN IN SINGAPORE
A royal touch down in Singapore: People Magazine reports, “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge touched down in Singapore, the first stop on their official tour to Southeast Asia to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II‘s Diamond Jubilee.
In a nod to her hosts, Kate, 30, wore a pink kimono-style Jenny Packham dress with an orchid pattern as Will and Kate hit the tarmac in Singapore, Tuesday.
On the schedule was a quick jaunt to a tropical garden. The young royals viewed the 3-ft. tall, white Dendrobium Memoria Princess Diana orchid during a moment of reflection.
“It’s a shame,” William said of the fact his mother, who vowed to visit the gardens before her death in 1997, was never able to make a planned trip to Singapore. “It’s beautiful,” he added of the flower. “Nice, very nice.” The flight from the UK was long. More@TheTropicalRoyalStrut.
