Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sat down to a musical lunch on Tuesday with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as they continued their tour of India.

Modi welcomed Prince William and his wife on the steps of Hyderabad House, once a princely residence designed by British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens.

Indian sources said the four-course lunch featured vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes but, citing protocol, declined to specify the dishes served. Renowned Indian classical musician Rahul Sharma played the santoor, rounding off his performance with Beatles classic 'Let It Be'.

The couple have spent much of their three days in India meeting children and charities which work with them. On Tuesday, they visited a shelter of the Salaam Baalak Trust that provides support and shelter for street children in Delhi and Mumbai.
