Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and his wife Catherine (‘Kate’), arrived in Pakistan’s capital on Monday to begin a five day visit that will focus on boosting ties and addressing challenges such as climate change. On Tuesday, the royal couple visited a school in Islamabad, where they sat and talked with school children.
Upon their arrival in Pakistan, the Duke and Duchess were greeted by Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Thomas Drew, the British High Commissioner, as well as two children who gave them bouquets of flowers.
The trip has been described by Kensington Palace as the most complex the couple have undertaken due to security and logistical issues. It is the first by members of the British royal family in more than a decade.
