Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to sample world's hottest chilli

Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will sample the world's hottest chilli during their trip to India.

The royal couple are set to visit Kaziranga National Park, which is home to the biggest population of one-horned rhinos, where they will be treated to a tasting session featuring the Bhut Jolakiya chilli.

Prashanta Kumar Sharma, general manager at the IORA Resort, where the couple are expected to stay, said: "Our hotel employees are planning to welcome the royal couple in the traditional way with the Bihu and Jhumur dance.

"We are also planning to serve them traditional dishes, along with the world's hottest chilli Bhut Jolakiya. We are excited and eagerly awaiting their arrival."

And the locals in Assam are looking forward to welcoming the royal couple - who have two-year-old Prince George and 11-month-old Princess Charlotte together - to their village.

Amal Saikia added to India Today: "We are very proud that the royal couple is going to visit our national park. But I want them to visit our villages as well, to understand our culture. The people of Assam are well known for their hospitality. Ahead of the Bihu festival, I would rather have them visiting our village."
