It's Day 3 of the Royal Tour to India and Bhutan, and the Duchess of Cambridge continued her sartorial wins for a day of mixed engagements. First, William and Kate took to the streets to meet children who are helped by the Salaam Baalak Trust -- a street children shelter near the New Delhi railway station. These vulnerable kids and the lives they live are what inspired the film "Slumdog Millionaire."

They played games with the kids and Kate drew pictures with them. In a bittersweet moment, one child asked Kate to draw a picture of her home, and it's believed what she drew is the 10-bedroom Amner Hall. The young boy helped her color the photo, adding a sun, greenery and clouds.

Kate and William continue their quest to support mental health, even while on tour, asking the Trust what the public perception is in India and how the organization works to aid the mental health of the children they help. At one point, William asked, "What can we do to help?"

The charity's director, Sanjoy Roy replied, "Spread the word. People think of them as street kids, beggars, thieves but they are just children. They deserve an education, future and a life. They have a right to a childhood."

The Duchess chose to wear a $70 patterned red maxi dress for the visit, with comfortable flats so she could easily sit and interact with the children.

Later in the day, Kate and William met with India's Prime Minister for lunch. The Duchess changed into another Temperley London piece for the occasion, the vibrant jade green Desdemona lace dress from the Fall 2016 collection, retailing for $1395. Adding a few panels of extra fabric, Kate's version of the dress is much more demure than the piece available from the British brand.

She wore her LK Bennet Fern leather pumps in trench -- available in that hue in May -- and pulled her hair back into an elegant chignon.

Later in the evening William and Kate will visit Kaziranga national park. Stay tuned for what Kate wears to their first trip to the park!
