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 Duchess arrived in Rawalpindi, Pakistan this evening showcasing her first diplomatic ensemble of the tour, mixing British and Pakistani influence. The Duchess chose to wear the traditional Shalwar Kameez – a dress/tunic and trousers – with a western flare. Created by @catwalkerco, the bespoke turquoise set features an ombré effect with an elegant cowl neckline running right around the back and a tea-length hemline that billowed out as she walked. The Duchess carried a new clutch by local label @thezeenwoman by Cambridge — the ‘Cream Gleam’ clutch which is $29. She also wore the Zeen ‘Beaded Chandelier’ earrings which are $10. We first saw Kate wearing Zeen at one of her previous engagements in London in the form of another pair of earrings by the brand. Cambridge was a leading retailer of men’s apparel since 1973, expanded into women’s wear in 2014 with Zeen, now available in 27 outlets all over Pakistan as well as online. They carry pret-wear, unstitched, formals, bottoms and accessories. For heels, The Duchess wore her @rupertsanderson ‘Malory’ nude pumps. See you tomorrow for the couple’s engagements in Islamabad. 🇵🇰

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 Duchess wore another exquisite shalwar kameez today—this time by a local designer—for her engagements in Islamabad, Pakistan. The ensemble is a creation by @maheenofficial, a Pakistani fashion and costume designer who ran an embroidery house in the UK and worked on the embroidery for Catherine Walker until she died. The designer wrote on Twitter: “My team is proud to have worked on the Periwinke silk outfit for the Duchess. It is an honour to have been asked to create this outfit for [her].” Unlike yesterday’s Catherine Walker ensemble, today’s features a dupatta — a shawl-like scarf. The Duchess also wore the @thezeenwoman ‘Beaded Chandelier’ earrings we saw her wearing yesterday which are $10. She wore a new pair of closed toe sandals by New Look from @asos. They are the New Look Wide Fit faux suede low block heeled shoes in tan which are £23.99. (Thanks to Carley of Kate Middleton Style for the ID) The shoes also come in black. When visiting the National Park, Kate changed into her @russellandbromley ‘Xpresso Crossover Flats’ which she has worn once previously during her visit to India in 2016. They are no longer available. I adore The Duchess’s look today! She suits the style and colour so much. #RoyalVisitPakistan 🇵🇰

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.
