Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Pakistan- Day 3

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are on an Official Visit to Pakistan at the request of the British Foreign Office, from October 14-17, to promote and celebrate British-Pakistani ties. The visit will pay respect to the historical relationship between Britain and Pakistan, but will largely focus on showcasing Pakistan as it is today — a dynamic, aspirational and forward-looking nation.

On their third day in Pakistan, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge flew from Islamabad to the Hindu Kush Mountain Range, stopping in Chitral for refuelling, where they received traditional hats, coats, and book with pictures from the Princess of Wales’ visit in 1991. During their visit to the Mountain Range, the Duke and Duchess visited a glacier that is retreating due to climate change.

Later, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the village of Bumburet in Chitral, that has been damaged by flash floods, meeting inspiring community-led Search & Rescue teams, before they visited a Kalash village, the Indigenous people of the valley, who claim descent from the Armies of Alexander the Great as he was marching through the Hindu Kush on his way to India, to learn more about their unique heritage and traditions.
