Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Pakistan- Day 4

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.

After flying on RAF Voyager from Islamabad, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge landed at the Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore, where they were received by the Governor and Chief Minister of Punjab. The Duke and Duchess then visited the SOS Children’s Village, which provides a home and family structure to over 150 young girls and boys, and promotes the development of children into happy, confident and resilient adults, and where the Duchess gave a Speech. Afterwards, the Royal Couple played cricket with children at the National Cricket Academy.

Later, the Duke and Duchess visited the Badshahi ‘Imperial’ Masjid, the second largest masjid in Pakistan with a capacity for 100,000 people, built by Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in 1671. They attended an interfaith meeting before visiting the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital, founded by Prime Minister Imran Khan and opened by the late Princess Diana in 1997, visiting the children ward, where they spent time with patients undergoing treatment. Afterwards, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge flew back to Islamabad on the RAF Voyager, which had to return to Lahore as it could not land in Islamabad due to a fierce storm.
