Kate Middleton and Prince William got quite the greeting as they arrived at an Indian rhino park met by enthusiastic dancers. But when the couple least expected it, one little performer decided to get cheeky and totally stomped on the duo’s toes!
Surrounded by traditional Assamese dancers while in the midst of their royal Indian tour, Kate Middleton, 34, and Prince William, 33, became part of the show themselves when a three-year-old boy broke away from his fellow dancers to give the royal pair a special hello. The child was not shy at ALL as he adorably danced on Kate’s and William’s feet! But it was all in good fun as the couple laughed the incident off, obviously enthused by the tiny tot.
While enjoying the fireside festival in the Indian state of Assam, Kate and William were totally enthralled by the three-year-old’s lively dancing. They even broke out in laughter as the child attempted — and then succeeded — to stamp on their feet — how cute! Kate, who was left with a noticeable mud stain on her black, cloth wedges, didn’t even seem to mind a bit. What a good sport!
Leading up to the foot stomping, the couple were seen smiling and pointing at the youngster as he energetically made his way to the Prince and Duchess. Passing between dancers and drummers, the child eagerly greeted Kate and William with his foot stomp after being introduced to the pair. Pretty adorable, right? And the royal duo totally thought so too as Kate literally laughed out loud!
The wild greeting came as the couple were enjoying the third leg of their India visit at a Bihu festival by the Diphlu River Lodge in the Kaziranga National Park. They were there to visit a one-horn rhino park! Earlier in the day, Kate and the Prince had lunch with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi after Kate participated in an adorable art project with some Indian children.
This morning The Duke and Duchess visited the Salaam Baalak Trust in New Delhi, an NGO that works to rescue and support young children arriving in the city alone and living on the streets. Their Royal Highnesses visited the Trust's Contact Centre near the railway station, and one of the temporary shelters for boys nearby where they met some of children that live there #RoyalVisitIndia

The Duchess’ third day in India called for three outfit changes as Kate changed from a £50 frock to a stunning £795 gown, and then finally to an £805 dress by Anna Sui, 51. And while Kate’s last two outfits were totally chic AND totally pricey, we’re hoping her fabric wedges didn’t cost an arm and a leg as they’re now in desperate need of a thorough cleaning!
How adorable was Kate and William’s interaction with this tiny dancer, HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised they got their feet danced on?
