The Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Pakistan with a nod to both her hosts and the memory of her mother-in-law, wearing a traditional shalwar-kameez style outfit from one of Princess Diana’s favourite couture houses.
The royal couple landed amid tight security at an airbase outside Islamabad to start a five-day visit to showcase the Commonwealth’s second most populous nation and strengthen ties with Britain.
The Duchess stepped down from their RAF Voyager plane in a blue Catherine Walker dress as she was met by Shah Mahmoud Qureshi, Pakistan’s foreign minister.
