NEW DELHI (AP) — The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have met with young entrepreneurs in India's financial capital of Mumbai to speak with the country's next generation of business leaders about their start-up ideas.

On the second day of their weeklong royal tour of India, Prince William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton, spent nearly an hour Monday with the entrepreneurs and the venture capitalists likely to fund some of their enterprise ideas.

Kate, dressed in a cream wool crepe outfit, smiled and waved at crowds of onlookers who had gathered outside the Mumbai cafe where the meeting was held.

Later Monday, the royal couple flew to New Delhi, where they were scheduled to lay a wreath at a war memorial and pay respect to Indian independence leader Mohandas K. Gandhi.
