KARACHI: Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton arrived in Pakistan on Monday, and met Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday.
This is the couple’s first visit to the country, and the first time for a memeber of the royal family to visit the country since Prince Charles’ visit in 2006.
William’s late mother, Princess Diana visited Pakistan in 1996 and 1997 to help raise awareness and funds for the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital.
William and Kate kicked off their official engagements Tuesday morning, visiting a government girls college. Watch a heartwarming video below, where a student tells Prince William that she was a fan of his mother. His response: “That’s very sweet of you. I was a big fan of my mother too.”
The couple is expected to stay in the country for another four days.
