SINGAPORE — Prince William and his wife Kate have seen orchids named for them and for his late mother in Singapore.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were presented a plant with white-and-purple blooms that's jointly named for them. The royals also saw orchids named for Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth II at the Singapore Botanical Gardens on Tuesday.

Kate wore a pale floral dress to the event. She was carrying an orchid bouquet when she and William greeted staff and spectators at the historic Raffles hotel later in the evening.

Singapore is the first stop on the couple's nine-day tour of the Far East and South Pacific.

They will also visit the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu in honor of the queen's Diamond Jubilee marking her 60 years on the throne.
