It seems that Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, really want to get the true flavor and feel of Pakistan, on their first-ever official visit to the country. From trying out Pakistani brands for apparel to visiting with the underprivileged schools and advocating for girl’s education, the Duke and Duchess are having a very productive tour of Pakistan.
Last night, at a special reception hosted by the British High Commission in Pakistan at the Pakistan Monument in Islamabad, brought about an array of Pakistani celebrities, including musicians, film stars, designers alongside leaders from the Pakistani politics and business community.
The highlight of the reception, however, was Prince William and Kate Middleton, both arriving in a Tuk Tuk Riksha and carrying gorgeous matching attires. The tuk-tuk was specially painted with the Union Jack and the Pakistani national flag for the British Royals.
The Duchess of Cambridge opted for a glittering emerald dress by Jenny Packham, while William wore a similar-colored traditional sherwani buttoned coat by Karachi-based designer Naushemian.
At the reception, William gave a speech to highlight the prosperous and thriving relationship between the UK and Pakistan and mingled with the creme de la creme of the Pakistani entertainment industry, business, and politics.
