The couple who are the first royals to officially visit Pakistan since Prince Charles and his wife Camilla visited the region in 2006 were received by the premier at the Prime Minister House, where a lunch was hosted in honour of the guests.
William’s late mother, Diana, was a friend of the prime minister and visited Pakistan twice 1996 and 1997 to help raise awareness and funds for the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital.
Prior to meeting the prime minister, the couple was welcomed by President Arif Alvi and his wife Samina Arif at Aiwan-i-Sadr.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge called on the President here at the Aiwan-e-Sadr Islamabad today.
