Prince William and Kate Middleton's Royal Tour of Pakistan has been described as their most "complex and sensitive" tour to date. But it's also probably one of their most successful.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been on a whirlwind tour of Pakistan. Due to the security risks associated with the tour, a complete itinerary was never released. According to the couple’s Communication Secretary, fans can expect the tour to “span over 1000 km and will take in Pakistan’s rich culture, its diverse communities, and its beautiful landscapes.” The complex tour was to the itinerary will “largely focus on showcasing Pakistan as it is today—a dynamic, aspirational and forward-looking nation.” That’s certainly been the case so far.” That’s certainly been the case so far.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge touched down at Pakistani Air Force Base Nur Khan. The Duchess wore a custom made Catherine Walker flared kurta, a long shirt and trousers. 

The Duchess of Cambridge was welcomed as she arrives in Islamabad, Pakistan by local children who presented her with bouquets of flowers. She matched her bespoke outfit with sparkling drop earrings. 

On her second day in Pakistan, the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out wearing a periwinkle blue kurta and trousers, for a packed day of engagements in the country’s capital.

The Duke and Duchess visited a local classroom in Islamabad, highlighting the importance of education as one of their focuses as members of the Royal family. 

The couple visited classrooms and stopped to pose with local young students for photos. William was told the girls were ‘big fans of your mother’. His warm response: ‘You were, really? Oh that’s very sweet of you. I was a big fan of my mother too. She came here three times. I was very small.’ 

They went on to visit Margalla Hills National Park and met children from three schools who were working on projects that will help Pakistan meet its sustainable development goals.

Next stop, the Duke and Duchess met with Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad. Khan was a friend of Princess Diana’s.

For the visit, Kate wore a vibrant green tunic by Catherine Walker, which she paired with trousers by Maheen Khan.

As the sunset, the Duke and Duchess attended a reception hosted by the British High Commissioner to Pakistan. The couple arrived by Tuk Tuk at the Pakistan National Monument in Islamaba. 

The Duchess sparkled in a Jenny Packham emerald dress, while William went for a sherwani, which was designed by Karachi-based label Naushemian. 

During his keynote speech, Prince William highlighted the relationship between the UK and Pakistan – and also referred to when his grandmother the Queen visited more than fifty years ago, saying: ‘Stood here with this magnificent monument behind me, I am struck by the great strides Pakistan has made since its birth seventy-two years ago.

The next morning, the royal couple travelled to the Hindu Kush mountain range. Upon arrival, Kate was given a regimental cap of the Chitral Scouts and a shawl. Memorably, Princess Diana wore the same hat during her 1991 visit to Pakistan. Later, the pair went to visit a Kalash community in the Hindu Kush.
