Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, arrived in Pakistan on October 14th, 2019. The four-day trip has been scheduled on these dates because they want to spend their weekend with thir children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis who are back home in London. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also completed their school run dropping their children to school just a few hours before leaving for Pakistan. Their royal visit is being considered of prime importance due to the sensitive nature of the royal visit.

Prince William and Kate Middleton were welcomed by the Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and his wife Mehreen Qureshi at Nur Base Islamabad as their Britsih Voyager RAF aircraft landed at the Noor Khan Airbase Islamabad. As they landed at 9:30 PM, they did not conduct any royal engagements. Today they will conduct the official engagements in Islamabad, the leafy capital of Pakistan. According to their agenda of the day, the Royal couple will visit a school in Islamabad, schoolchildren nature visit in Himalayan foothills, meet the President and Prime Minister of Pakistan and attend an evening reception at the Pakistan Monument.

These causes include children education especially the girl child education and environment protection to combat the effects of the climate change. According to the Kensington Palace,

‘The Duke and Duchess’s first official visit to the country will pay respect to the historical relationship between Britain and Pakistan, but will largely focus on showcasing Pakistan as it is today — a dynamic, aspirational and forward-looking nation

From the modern leafy capital Islamabad, to the vibrant city of Lahore, the mountainous countryside in the North, and the rugged border regions to the West, the visit will span over 1000km, and will take in Pakistan’s rich culture, its diverse communities, and its beautiful landscapes.

Two weeks ahead of their trip, the royal couple visited Aga Khan Centre in London to meet the young and modern Pakistanis along with Sir Kareem Aga Khan. Kate Middleton revealed her liking for the traditional curries and spicy food. She candidly mentioned that it was not possible to prepare curry at home because of Prince William did not enjoy spicy food. However, their four-year-old daughter Princess Charlotte is great at handling the spice.
