Mar 20, 2024 10:05 AM IST

Shah Rukh Khan, along with Aishwarya Rai and other Bollywood celebrities, met Kate Middleton and Prince William during their India tour in 2016.

In her absence from the spotlight, the Princess of Wales Kate Middleton has somehow never been more present. While the internet has endless theories about her whereabouts, Kate once made headlines in India as she visited the country for the first time with husband, Prince William. One of the highlights to come out of Kate and William's India trip in 2016 was their meeting with Shah Rukh Khan and other Bollywood actors.

Shah Rukh and Madhuri on meeting Kate, William

At the time, Shah Rukh had told PTI, "It was very nice. They are so elegant and beautiful. It was really nice to see them.” Madhuri Dixit had also tweeted a picture from the event and said, "It was a pleasure meeting their highnesses, William and Kate. Very gracious and down to earth."

During the visit, William had said, β€œIt has been a wonderful and colourful evening. It has been a real treat to be welcomed to India in this way... When Catherine and I got married, India was the first place in her list which she told me she wanted to visit. Two children and five years later we finally made it and we are quite honoured to be here."

Why Kate Middleton is making headlines

Since Kensington Palace announced Kate Middleton would temporarily pause her royal duties following a planned abdominal surgery in late January, rumours have been swirling about the Princess of Wales's whereabouts and health. The speculation only got worse when the family released a photo of Kate with her children on March 10, which they have since confirmed was digitally altered.
