14:39, May 03, 2012

NEW DELHI, May 3 (Xinhua) -- Britain's Prince Andrew, who is on a week-long visit to India since Sunday, has toured the western naval command headquarters in Mumbai Wednesday, local media reported Thursday.

The Duke of York also took a tour of Indian Navy's aircraft carrier, INS Viraat, and interacted with senior naval officials of the command, the reports said.

The Prince, himself a British naval official, is in India to mark the Queen's diamond jubilee celebrations this year.

On Tuesday, he had visited a World War II cemetary in the northeastern state of Nagaland's capital Kohima to pay homage to the soldiers of the Allied Forces who died fighting in the Battle of Kohima in 1944.
