While we assume Kate Middleton packed her suitcase quite carefully for the royal trip to India and Bhutan, her final outfit was most important. After a lovely send off in Alexander McQueen, the duchess joined Prince William to visit the Taj Mahal, marking the last stop on their tour.

The couple paid homage to Princess Diana by recreating her iconic photo in front of the special landmark. Kate and William posed on the same bench, Kate showing off every angle of her gorgeous Naeem Khan dress, a look from the Indian-American designer's Resort 2015 collection. While she could have chosen an outfit more muted in color, we love that Kate opted for a number with beautiful embroidery, playing up the blue color scheme with the chandelier earrings she bought during her hike to Tiger's Nest the day before.

Kate's other accessories were minimal — neutral L.K. Bennett pumps, her Ray-Ban sunglasses, and her sapphire engagement ring — assuring us that this particular ensemble was all about her new jewelry and her now iconic dress, a symbolic appreciation for her time spent in India. Read on to see all the details up close.
