The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Badshahi Mosque, the most iconic Islamic site in Lahore, set in the heart of the Walled City. The Duke and Duchess toured the mosque and courtyard, before joining a discussion with faith leaders to learn how they are promoting interfaith harmony within their communities. The couple’s visit to Badshahi sees them follow in the footsteps of The Duke’s father, The Prince of Wales @ClarenceHouse, who visited the Mosque with The Duchess of Cornwall during a tour of Pakistan in 2006, and his grandmother Her Majesty The Queen @TheRoyalFamily, who visited in 1961.

It is our great pleasure to join you here this evening on our first official visit to Pakistan. I would like to begin by saying bahut shukria to you all for making us so welcome in your country. 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 view from this hill would have been quite different when my grandmother, The Queen, first visited over half a century ago. Looking out, one would have seen the beginnings of a city under construction, yet to become the great capital that it is today. And with successive visits by my mother and my father, this view has continued to change, with the city constantly growing and with it my family’s affection for Pakistan. Take a look at our Stories to see more from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first full day of their visit to Pakistan.

When she is not following Dukan Diet, Kate Middleton prefers taking raw foods like vegetables and fruits. She avoids taking dairy but prefers smoothies made with a blend of kale, matcha, spinach, spirulina, lettuce, cilantro, and blueberries often blended with almond milk. The goal is not always to stay trim but also to achieve healthy and radiant skin.
