The Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge’s Visit To Pakistan Is A Cultural Treat

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are on a royal tour to Pakistan and have immersed themselves in its pristine natural landscapes and valleys, showcasing the country as the dynamic and culturally vibrant nation that it is. With their first day spent in the capital, Islamabad, the royal couple met students of an all-girls college and learnt how they’re benefiting from the ‘Teach for Pakistan’ program, serving as bastions of equal education.

They also visited the iconic Pakistan National Monument, which offers a wonderful melange of Pakistani music and culture. Arriving in style in a richshaw, decorated with intricate Pakistani truck art, they dazzled in traditional outfits, especially Kate, who radiated in a glimmering green sequinned gown and matching stole.

Donning Chitrali hats, they also visited a settlement of the Kalash people in Northern Pakistan to learn more about the Kalash community and  their unique heritage and traditions, also joining them in their traditional dance.

Embracing local cultural sensibilities with class, the Duchess has once again popularized the traditional shalwar kameez, sporting several designs by Pakistani verteran fashion designer Maheen Khan, following in the footsteps of the late Princess Diana, whose looks, many say, she has mirrored throughout her trip to Pakistan. Our fashion radar is coding green.
