Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, spent a busy first day in Pakistan, winning hearts along the way.
This is the first visit of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Pakistan, during which they aim to “meet as many Pakistanis as possible and build a lasting friendship with the people of the country”.
The couple kicked off their engagements on the second day of their five-day trip to Pakistan with a visit to the Islamabad Model College for Girls, University Colony on Tuesday morning, where they interacted with the staff and students and visited classrooms.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who are strong advocates of girls’ education, were greeted by teachers and children on their arrival at the school.
Clips shared by British media show one of the schoolgirls telling William that “they were fans” of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.
“That’s very sweet of you. I was a big fan of my mother too,” he replied with a smile.
After their visit to the school, they arrived at Trail 5, Margalla Hills to attend an event regarding environmental protection. Strict security arrangements were made prior to their arrival.
“In the Margalla Hills, which sit in the foothills of the Himalayas, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined children from four local schools, taking part in activities designed to educate young people on environmental protection and wildlife conservation,” said Kensington Palace on Twitter.
