Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to arrive in Pakistan today on a 5-day tour

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William, and Kate Middleton are to arrive in Pakistan tonight, marking their first-ever visit to Pakistan. The expected time of the Royal couple’s arrival in Islamabad is 9 pm.

The five-day visit has been organized at the request of the United Kingdom’s (UK) Foreign and Commonwealth Office which will conclude on 18 Oct.

British High Commissioner in Pakistan Thomas Drew took to twitter sharing the highlights of the Royal visit.

The preparations and arrangements for the upcoming visit of the Royal duo have been completed. There is a lot of excitement and buzz for this visit, as it is going to be the first royal tour to Pakistan since 2006 when Prince Charles and Camilla, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, visited Pakistan.

The possible tour details have been shared in an official handout from Kensington Palace, stating, “During their time in Pakistan, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Islamabad, Lahore, Gilgit-Baltistan and rugged border regions to the west”.

“The visit will span over 1,000 kilometers, and will take in Pakistan’s rich culture, its diverse communities, and its beautiful landscapes”, the handout further stated.

“Access to quality education, particularly to girls and young women is one of the UK’s top priorities in Pakistan,” it further added.

To welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in a unique style, local rickshaws of Lahore and Rawalpindi have been given a unique makeover.

Sharing the details of rickshaw makeover, The UK in Pakistan’ Twitter account posted the video with a caption saying, “Check out the #RoyalVisitPakistan rickshaws on the roads of Rawalpindi and Lahore. Welcome to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge”.

Pakistan fondly remembers Prince William’s mother Princess Diana’s visit to Pakistan in the 1990s to participate in a fund-raising event for a cancer hospital built by Imran Khan.
