Day three of the royal tour brought two very different ensembles for the Duchess. Kate and William’s first engagement was at a contact center for the Salaam Baalak Trust. The organization helps children who live on the streets near the Delhi train station.

The Trust has a total of 18 centers: 13 contact points and 5 shelters.  More from The Telegraph’s Gordon Rayner.

Street children told them how they had left their homes because of abuse or the hope of a better life, but face a constant battle for survival. Boys and girls as young as five arrive at the station every day, where people traffickers are waiting to pounce.
