Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Pakistan- Day 5

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 the morning of their final day in Pakistan, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge returned to Islamabad from Lahore on the RAF Voyager, which had failed to land in Islamabad the previous evening due to a severe storm. The Duke and Duchess spent the night at the Pearl Continental Hotel in Lahore. A planned trip to the Khyber Pass on the Afghanistan border was cancelled, but the Duke and Duchess visited an Army Canine centre before their Official Departure from Pakistan aboard RAF Voyager.

UPDATE- Before leaving Lahore, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge returned to
the SOS Children’s Village, which provides a home and family structure to over 150 young girls and boys in Lahore. The Duchess released a statement:

The community at the SOS Village is built around family – and the best possible family you could imagine – where everyone comes together to nurture, love and protect the children in their care.

These vulnerable children, many who have come through traumatic circumstances, are nurtured in this caring environment and are able to form these quality relationships that they so desperately need to thrive. — Catherine
