During her meeting with the Singaporean president and his wife, Kate made the president laugh by telling him, “It’s a bit colder than our last meeting”, and he replied: “The weather is lovely.”
She was referring to the last time they met, in Singapore in 2012.
Mrs Tan said she was glad Kate could make the engagement and the Duchess replied: “So am I. I’ve been looking forward to getting out of the house, that’s for sure.”
The couples then sat down to tea and posed for an official picture.
The room at the Royal Garden Hotel where they met had a panoramic view of Kensington Gardens and the London skyline, with the Shard, London Eye and BT Tower standing out.
Prince William, smartly dressed in a dark suit, shirt and tie, sat down next to the president while Kate joined Mrs Tan on a sofa opposite.
The president commented on the beautiful view of Kensington Palace from the hotel and William joked: "You can probably see into our bedroom window which is a bit worrying - I wouldn’t look too closely."
