Prince William and Kate Middleton who are on their three day visit to Pakistan, visited Chitral the Hindu Khush. The Duke and Duchess were presented with traditional Chitrali hats. Kate sported her traditional hat with a warm shawl and colorful embroidered jacket she was given.
William, during his the visit to Chitral recalled the time when his mother late mother Princess Diana visited the region during her first solo visit to Pakistan in 1991. Diana was also welcomed with the same gesture and was given a Chitrali hat during her visit.
Now, in a recent video posted by the Kensington Palace shows Kate interacting with the people of Kalash, an indigenous tribe in Chitral. She wore another traditional outfit which includes a hat with an elongated end, topped with a colourful feather. Clearly much better than Virat Kohli popping up with his traditional attire in Manyavar commercials.
Their official Twitter handle posted the video captioned as, “Thank you to the Kalash people in Chitral for the wonderful welcome for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge today! #RoyalVisitPakistan”
Last week, Kensington Palace called the five-day trip "the most complex tour undertaken by The Duke and Duchess to date, given the logistical and security considerations".
The visit, which will end on October 18, has been organised at the request of the United Kingdom's (UK) Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
This is the first royal tour to the country since 2006 when Prince Charles and Camilla, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, travelled to Pakistan.
In 1990, Princess Diana, William's mother, visited Pakistan to participate in a fund-raising event for a cancer hospital built by Khan.
