The hyped up visit of Prince William and Kate Middleton to the 17th century monument of love began at 3.35 pm on Saturday. The couple stayed till 4.22 pm.

The couple sat for a while on the Diana seat, where Prince William's mother, the late Princess of Wales, had sat alone during a February 1992 visit.

The couple were accompanied by Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) officials during the visit. The British royals also saw the Yamuna river, which flows at the rear of the monument.
