ISLAMABAD: The British royal palace has released some more information about the planned visit by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, to Pakistan, reflecting their interest in visiting a considerable number of locations in the country. Scheduled to tour Pakistan from October 14 to 18, it will be the first visit by the young generation of British royals to Pakistan and first from the royal family since 2006 when The Duke and Duchess of Cornwell, Prince Charles and Camilla, visited the country. The press release, calling the visit the most “complex” of all the royal tours taken, gave vague but promising details on the couple’s visit that will cover a lot of ground.
“Whilst The Duke and Duchess’s program 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,” read the release.
