Kate Middleton looked happy and very much at home giggling happily as she was presented the souvenirs. She wore a long plain brown dress with long boots that were camouflaged due to the gown.
The royal couple is visiting Chitral to understand the effects of climate change on glacial regions, the impact of flash flooding on Chitral, and visit the Kalash village. They were flown to Chitral by Pakistan army aviators on Italian Leonordo’s VIP transport Augusta Westland AW139 helicopter.
The helicopter ride gave them a better idea of the Hindukush mountain range.
Members of their media team and Sky News accompanied them on another helicopter.
Their tour to Chitral has just begun and there is a lot more to follow. They will be flying back to London on October 18th, 2019. The Cambridges’ next stop will be Lahore, the cultural capital of Pakistan.
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s visit is the first royal visit since 2006. The trip is all the more special for Prince William because of his mother late Princess Diana’s popularity among the Pakistani people. She had visited Pakistan thrice from 1991 to 1997 and had a great affiliation with the people of Pakistan. The tour has proven to be a huge success so far and the people of Pakistan cannot help gushing over the royal couple. Despite being the members of the royal family, the Cambridges have won everyone over with their humility and respect for the Pakistani culture.
