Prince William and his wife Kate the Duchess of Cambridge are all set to arrive in Pakistan’s Capital Islamabad on Monday for the first ever royal trip after a decade. The Duke and the duchess will be welcomed by a red carpet due to their first ever visit to the country.
The couple will be in Pakistan for a five-day trip they will start off in Islamabad and will also be paying a visit to Lahore which will be supervised by the Pakistan Military. Prior to this trip Kensington Palace said in a statement “This is the most complex tour undertaken by The Duke and Duchess to date, given the logistical and security considerations.”
The statement further added on “Whilst The Duke and Duchess’s programme will pay respect to the historical relationship between Britain and Pakistan, it will largely focus on showcasing Pakistan as it is today – a dynamic, aspirational and forward-looking nation.”
The royal couple will be meeting the president and the Prime Minister during this visit and will also be visiting programmes which will be aiming to empower people in Pakistan.
In 2006, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, Charles and Camilla, visited Pakistan. And previously Prince William’s mother the late Princess Diana, had also visited Pakistan in 1996 to attend a fundraising event for a cancer hospital built by cricketer-turned-politician and now Prime Minister Imran Khan.
A gesture of Peace and a hand for another good relationship amongst the two countries.
