The Duke and Duchess were greeted by the chief minister of Assam state, Tarun Gogoi, and his wife, Dolly, who presented them with ‘gamochas’ – or traditional hand-woven scarves – which are reserved for special guests in Assamese culture.

The Royal couple were then surrounded by traditional Assamese dancers who moved to the beat of drums and brass cymbals clashing. In honour of the region’s harvest festival of Bihu, which starts tomorrow, the couple were also invited to enjoy Assamese rice pancakes and coconut cookies as a refreshment.
