Kate and Will arrive in Pakistan for ‘most complex royal tour ever’
14th October 2019

Kate and Prince William have arrived in Pakistan for what is being called the most complex royal tour ever.

They arrived by RAF Voyager A330 at Pakistani Air Force Bazd Nur Khan in Islamabad.

The Duchess is wearing a turquoise bespoke Catherine Walker dress and trousers.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been sent on the first high-profile royal visit to the country for 13 years.

The last senior members of the Royal Family to visit Pakistan were Prince Charles and Camilla in 2006 when, according to diplomats, the country was less safe than now.

A huge security operation involving 1,000 police officers will be on hand throughout the five-day visit.

William and Kate, both 37, want to highlight the close cultural ties between the two countries as more than 1.5 million people in Britain have Pakistani heritage.

Earlier this month a senior royal aide said: “What happens in Pakistan matters on the streets of the UK. It’s one of the most important relationships that the UK has.”

They will visit Lahore, the mountains in the north and regions bordering Afghanistan.

But the precise locations will not be made public until the day of visits for security reasons.

Their trip, at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, comes during heightened tensions between Pakistan and India over the disputed region of Kashmir.
