Kate Middleton and Prince William visited Chitral on day three of their visit to Pakistan. The aim of their visit was to study the effects of climate change on the glacial regions, the impact of flash floodings in Chitral’ and to visit Kalash valley. Their visit to Kalash valley was colorful and fun-filled. Here they got the opportunity to interact with the locals and become a part of their traditional dances and customs. Prince William and Kate Middleton mingled with the locals and had a chilled out casual chat with them trying to learn their culture.
The both wore traditional Kalash headdresses with feathers as they spent time with the locals. Kate Middleton mingled with the local women and tried picking some words from the local dialect. She asked for the local word for ‘thank you’ from the Kalash women who taught her the translation ‘meherbani’ which Kate Middleton repeated. The local women and Kate Middleton had a good time together as they giggled about little things.
Kate also chatted to local women and tried to learn a few words of their dialect as she wore a headdress with feathers in it, a key feature of the Kalash people who believe in animism, the existence of individual spirits in natural objects and phenomena #RoyalsVisitPakistan pic.twitter.com/tPrFDuBBvU
