Kate Middleton talks about her five-day royal tour of Pakistan
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has given a brief interview to CNN where she talked about her five-day royal tour of Pakistan.
After visiting SOS Children’s Village in Lahore, the Duchess Kate, dressed in Pakistan’s national dress, shalwar kameez, spoke to CNN about her wish of visiting the organization. Kate also delivered a speech regarding charity’s work.
“William and I really wanted to come and see an SOS Children’s Village like this,” the duchess told CNN.
She further said,
“There’s so many vulnerable women here but they’ve really used their positivity and the support that the village here provides them, really to support and protect the next generation of children in their care and give them the best possible start to their future lives.”
Kate also talked about her and William’s five-day tour of Pakistan as a whole.
“It’s been fantastic. We’ve seen a lot of Pakistan,” she added, acknowledging the “huge variety” of engagements they’ve had on the trip. “It’s been amazing seeing some of the geography, but then seeing some of the community activities like this has been really special.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went back to their homeland on October 18. Their final engagements included a visit to the Army Canine Centre in Islamabad and hearing a security briefing from the Khyber Rifles at a military post.
