The highly anticipated Royal visit initiated yesterday night when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Rawalpindi yesterday. The couple was welcomed by the Foreign Minister of Pakistan Shah Mahmood Qureshi, they were were presented a bouquet of Lilies by two kids dressed up in traditional Pakistani attires that was a rather adorable gesture. The hashtag Royals visit Pakistan has also been trending on twitter.

While the political consequences of this tour are still to be made clear, our fashion radar un-apologetically awaited to see what the Duchess was going to wear.
Up till now Kate’s outfits have been reflecting a signature Diana vibe which makes us rather nostalgic.

Kate wore a statement Catherine Walker turquoise ombre dress with pants coupled with earrings from the Pakistani brand Zeen which are super affordable. Furthermore, she wore nude pumps by Rupert Anderson that reflected her own personal style.
The Duke and Duchess visited a school in Islamabad today in their efforts to encourage education for girls;  they were seen engaging with the teachers as well as the children in the classrooms. The couple further visited  Margallah Hills National Park as well.
The Duchess wore Shalwar Kameez in an Indigo Purple shade by Maheen Khan with the same Zeen earrings she wore yesterday with nude heels from Asos. She also wore a duppatta along with her kurta and pants.
The couple met the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan this afternoon where she wore a green sherwani style kameez with white pants, a duppatta and black heels.

This look is also very similar to what the Princess of Wales wore to the Badshaai Masjid when she came to Pakistan.

For the dinner held by the British High Commisioner at National Monument Pakistan, the couple made an entry in decorated rickshaw and adorned desi outfits. The Duchess wore a new emerald green gown by Jenny Packham, while The Duke is in a Sherwani by Naushemian.
We hope this tour proves to be an empowering and constructive event for the country.
Looking forward to the rest of it.
