"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their party felt tremors from the Myanmar earthquake in Kaziranga National Park. Everyone is safe," Richard Palmer, a royal correspondent for London's Daily Express tweeted after the incident.
The earthquake hit Myanmar — about 500 miles from where Kate and William are currently staying in India — shortly before 8:00 p.m. local time on Wednesday evening. The couple are visiting India and Bhutan from Saturday, April 10 through Sunday, April 16 for their first royal tour of the South Asian regions.
