Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on Monday visited Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial in Delhi and paid homage him.

In a close to 45-minute visit to the Gandhi Smriti on Tees January Marg, the royal couple also saw the exhibits and came to know that Gandhi learned to wear a tie and play violin during his stay in London as a student.

The Duke and Duchess Cambridge also paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi at the Martyr’s Column. The Father of the Nation was killed on January 30, 1948 by a Hindu fanatic at the Birla House when he was taking a stroll there. The House, where Gandhi spent the last few years of his life, was later turned into a memorial.
