Last night, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge touched down in Pakistan for a five-day official royal visit. This trip marks the first royal visit to the country in 13 years and has been dubbed by Kensington Palace as “the most complex tour undertaken by The Duke and Duchess to date, given the logistical and security considerations” and sees the royal couple supported by 1,000 Pakistani police officers over the duration of their stay. A crucial element of this visit will be Kate and William’s diplomacy skills and etiquette which are instrumental to strengthening ties with the country and the wider region.
An important part of that charm offensive is making sure you are dressed for the occasion – something Kate Middleton knows a thing or two about. For her first outfit of the tour and her stepping-off-the-plane moment, Kate turned to a Catherine Walker & Co aqua blue long-dress-and-trouser look which paid tribute to the traditional salwar kameez worn by women in Pakistan.
