After a week of dreamy outfits, activities and more outfits, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made one last dream of ours come true before heading home.

On a visit to the Taj Mahal Saturday, the duchess formerly known as Kate Middleton and Prince William posed in a recreation of an iconic photo of Princess Diana, taken on her solo tour of India in 1992.

Diana, Princess of Wales' visit to the Taj Mahal alone during her trip to India with Prince Charles made headlines around the world in 1992.

Rumors that the royal couple would recreate the photo op started swirling as soon as it was revealed they would visit the majestic landmark during their trip.

The Taj Mahal is regarded in India as a symbol of love.

While Kensington Palace announced in a press release before the trip that "The Duke of Cambridge... appreciates the iconic status of the images that exist of The Princess at the Taj," reporters following the trip on site said the couple visited as a way to start fresh. 

 Will and Kate posed on the very same bench, now referred to as Lady Di's Chair. It was a beautiful homage, despite the fact that the photo of Diana alone at one man's monument of love for his first wife became famous for being taken just months before she and Prince Charles announced their separation.
