Kensington Palace announced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend a special event at the Aga Khan Centre on 2nd October, hosted by His Highness The Aga Khan.”

It will be the first official visit by a member of the British royal family to Pakistan since 2006 when Prince Charles and Camilla travelled to the south Asian country.

Earlier, the Queen visited in 1961 and 1997, while Princess Diana travelled to Pakistan on a solo trip in 1991.

The official tweet reads:

Earlier, the official announcement was made in June in regards to the visit.

“The Government and the people of Pakistan warmly welcome the announcement of the Royal Visit by Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Pakistan this year,” tweeted the High Commissioner for Pakistan, Mohammad Nafees Zakaria.

He added that the people of Pakistan “still cherish and fondly recall” the visits by the Queen and described the upcoming trip as a “reflection of the importance the United Kingdom attaches to its relations with Pakistan. The two countries enjoy historical links which both sides wish to strengthen further.”

Kensington Palace states further details will be shared in due course. For now, it’s unclear if the children will accompany the couple on the visit or not.

“The security will be robust and William and Kate’s teams will be taking no chances,” stated a report on Mirror. “It will be a challenge ensuring they are safe, which would be more complicated by George , Charlotte and Louis being there as well.”
