The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Catherine, will mark another historic milestone of their royal journey this autumn. The royal couple will be undertaking their first official visit to Pakistan. It was being speculated for some time now that couple will be embarking on another tour soon.

 

 

The Kensington Palace today confirmed that William and Catherine will be visiting an Asian country this year. It is expected to be a week-long visit. Further details will be disclosed in the due course.

The tour has been scheduled on the request of Foreign Office. I must say the tour destination has definitely surprised the royal fandom that was eagerly waiting for a Cambridge tour. None of us has expected it to be Pakistan since the rumours of a possible tour to some Asian countries has started. The speculation included Sri Lanka and Japan.

The visit is a high profile one due to the security concerns, and Pakistan’s position in Asia. Chris Ship from ITV has reported on twitter that Cambridge kids will not be accompanying their parents for the visit. Duke and Duchess’ last foreign visit together was in January-February 2018 when they visited Sweden and Norway.

Since his Middle East tour last year, William has stepped up in his royal role and the visit shows the confidence Palace and British Government has in the future Monarch of the country and the growing responsibilities of Catherine as future Queen Consort.

About the visit, High Commissioner for Pakistan, Mohammad Nafees Zakaria, said,

“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. The people of Pakistan still cherish and fondly recall the visits of The Queen to Pakistan during 1961 and 1997.” The visit shows “the importance the UK attaches to its relations with Pakistan. Both countries enjoy historical links which both sides wish to strengthen further.”

The Queen visited Pakistan in 1961 and 1997, and The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall visited in 2006. Pakistan, who gained its Independence from British Rule in 1947 and now part of the commonwealth has a fascinating history. The Gert’s Royal on Twitter made an interesting point, “It joined in 1947, left in 1972. Rejoined in 1981. Got suspended twice and then unsuspended in 2008. It is 1 of the 7 countries in Asia that are apart of the Commonwealth, with 53 countries in total”.

During the week-long visit, William and Catherine are expected to visit the three main cities of the country i.e. Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi along with Peshawar and some rural areas. But these all are the speculations given the situation. We will find the details soon.

William’s mother Late Princess of Diana visited the country twice, first in 1991 and then in 1997. During her second visit, Diana officially opened a Hospital founded by the current Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan. So I expect at least one official dinner organized by the Pakistani PM in the honour of the Royal Couple.

The Royal Watcher on Twitter made an interesting thread on twitter listing some Pakistani Fashion Designer whose creations would be lovely to see Duchess wearing during the visit. During India visit, royal fans were expecting to see Duchess in traditional Shalwar Kameej, but Catherine kept to dresses with mid-length and sleeves. Hopefully, during this visit, we will see Duchess in some traditional attires.

 

 

Stay tuned for the updates. I am expecting to see Catherine this week at Wimbledon and at The RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival that is from 2nd to 7th July where ‘Catherine’s Back to Nature garden will be exhibited.

The Princess of Asturias Foundation was established on September 24, 1980, in Oviedo in an act presided over by the then Prince Felipe, who was accompanied by King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia. Its main objectives are to consolidate the existing links between the Principality and the Princess of Asturias and to contribute to the exaltation and promotion of all scientific, cultural and humanistic values that are universal heritage. After the proclamation of Prince Felipe as King of Spain on June 19, 2014, Felipe and Letizia’s elder daughter Leonor -the Princess of Asturias, holds the Presidency of Honor, while the vice president of honour is occupied by the President of the Principality of Asturias.

The Board of the Princess of Asturias Foundation, which is composed of a score of personalities, is responsible for establishing the activities to be developed, approve budgets, set performance criteria, etc. for the foundation. In addition, the institution has a board of an advisory and honorary nature, the Princess of Asturias Board of Trustees, which includes all those people or institutions that collaborate in one way or another with the objectives of the foundation. Finally, there are also the Protective Members of the entity, most of them closely linked to the Principality of Asturias, and who also contribute to the economic sustainability of the Foundation.

Each year, since 1981, the institution distinguishes with its awards the scientific, technical, cultural, social and human work carried out by people, work teams or institutions in the international field, in the following eight categories: Communication and Humanities, Social Sciences, Arts, Letters, Scientific and Technical Research, International Cooperation, Concord and Sports. As a totally private and non-profit organization, the institution is nourished by the income from its patrimony and from the grants and donations that each year contribute, both the members of its patronages, as well as persons or organizations that collaborate regularly or circumstantially with it.

Agenda of the meeting was to welcome the new Patrons and the members of the Patronages. Then a video about the most important activities of the Foundation was projected. Addressing the meeting Felipe welcomed the new patrons and said,” as you can understand, for the Queen and for me the foundation has a very special meaning -especially emotional”.
