33-year-old William and his wife Kate, 34, will embark on their maiden visit to India on April 10 that will also include a trip to the monument of love, Taj Mahal in Agra.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will spend one night at the Taj Palace Hotel and visit a memorial to the victims of the 26/11 attack. Their stay would display "solidarity" with the victims.

The royal couple will also attend a Bollywood Gala evening at the hotel on April 10 which will raise money for charities helping street children.

"The Taj was one of the scenes of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in November 2008 and is now an iconic symbol of the city's resilience and strength. The stories of the bravery and dedication of the staff there are now known around the world," Kensington Palace said.

The hotel was under siege for four days in November 2008 when LeT terrorists carried out attacks across the city which left 166 dead and wounded more than 300.

On their week-long visit to India and Bhutan, William and Kate will also meet children from the Mumbai slums during a game of cricket at the Mumbai's famous recreation ground Oval Maidan.

Their final stop will be a visit to the Taj Mahal, recreating Princess Diana's visit there in 1992.
