The lengthy statement highlights that the tour will enable the royal couple to honor the decades-old relationship between Britain and Pakistan. The tour will also "largely focus" on helping to showcase the country to the world as it is now.
The lengthy statement accompanies an iconic picture taken as the gorgeous duo stepped off the plane. It can be seen that while Prince Williams kept to his usual formal suit, Middleton decided to make a traditional twist to her fashion choice.
The mother of three, who is regarded as a significant fashion influence, wore an aqua dress paired with matching pants. The dress bore a draped neckline, long sleeves, and a billowing bodice, much like the signature outfit of the Pakistani women.
There is no mistaking that the Duchess came well prepared for the much-awaited visit, which will reportedly "take in Pakistan's rich culture, its diverse communities, and its beautiful landscapes."
Prince William and Middleton's Pakistan tour is reportedly their most challenging overseas tour yet. According to Hello!, no royal has visited the country for over a decade since the Prince of Wales, and Duchess of Cornwall traveled there.
It is, however, one much-awaited as the couple was well-received by local officials and Britain's High Commissioner to Pakistan, Thomas Drew.
It can also be observed that netizens are all for the trip with many avid followers of the couple expressing excitement to see more pictures taken during the tour.
Due to tight security measures set around the tour, however, further details of the couple's set program will be released day by day.
