The couple is currently on an official tour of India and fears were raised for William and Catherine's safety after a 6.9-magnitude quake struck the neighbouring country of Myanmar.

People living in the eastern parts of India, including the states of Assam, were shaken by the natural disaster, but a spokesperson for the pair's royal residence, Kensington Palace, has assured fans the pair is unharmed.

William and Catherine had been in Assam, visiting the Kaziranga National Park, on Wednesday, and they are currently staying at the venue's Diphlu Lodge.

"Tremors were felt across the region," a palace spokesman explained to the media. "Everyone is OK."

Images from the couple's visit to the National Park, featuring the Prince and Duchess interacting with local animals, have been posted on the palace's official Twitter page.

One series of photos was captioned, "TRH (Their Royal Highnesses) fed orphaned baby elephants and rhinos at the Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation & Conservation".

The royals arrived in Mumbai on Sunday morning (10Apr16) and were officially welcomed to the country at a star-studded fundraising gala attended by Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
