The man who was once a threat to the British Empire became the most respected man in the world. Mahatma Gandhi’s non-violent protests played a huge role bringing India to independence.

Upon arrival at the sanctuary, the royal couple removed their shoes in respect of the sacred ground and then made their way to the Smriti.

Earlier on their trip, the Duke and Duchess had also paid respects to the victims of the Taj Palace attacks in Mumbai.
