The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge donned colourful outfits as they visit a settlement of the Kalash people to learn more about their culture and unique heritage on their royal tour to Pakistan today.
They are expected to watch emergency response drills in a village in Chitral today, which saw extensive damage from flooding in 2015 and hope to highlight the effect of global warming during their visits today.
Earlier, Kate had echoed Princess Diana when she put on the same traditional Chitrali hat worn by Prince William’s late mother during her own visit to Pakistan nearly three decades ago.
William and Kate donned the Pakistani outfits after they stepped out from a helicopter among the Hindu Kush mountains in the Chitral district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in the Himalayan foothills during their royal tour.
The couple are following in Diana’s footsteps by visiting the same region she did on her memorable trip to the country in 1991, and were presented with a book commemorating her time in the area 28 years ago.
Men normally wear the Chitrali hats but Kate was also given one because she is a VIP. The Duchess was also given a shawl while William was handed an embroidered cloak to wear, both of which were embroidered locally.

Kate wore a long taupe-coloured skirt and a darker coloured shirt under a leather vest for the visit, along with flat knee-high brown boots suitable for the rocky terrain, accessorised with gold earrings and a beige pashmina.
The Duke wore a pale teal shirt and beige chino trousers, and as he was presented with his own matching coat and hat, Kate remarked: ‘It’s amazing – all that embroidery.’
Kate followed in the footsteps of Diana, who was given the same regimental cap of the Chitral Scouts regiment of Pakistan army when she visited in 1991.
The Cambridges, who stopped off in Chitral to refuel their helicopter and were given an official welcome, wanted to highlight the effects of climate change after witnessing one of the glaciers melting for themselves.
They overlooked the northern tip of the Chiatibo Glacier in Broghil National Park, and were shown how it has retreated rapidly in recent years due to global warming. It was the first time the couple had seen a melting glacier.
Standing between the snowy peaks of the mountain range, the duke said communities ‘vulnerable to change’ needed ‘more education, more awareness and political action’.

How Diana first learned about landmines on tour of Pakistan in 1991

Diana, Princess of Wales first charmed Pakistanis with an official visit in 1991, which was her first solo trip representing the Queen to a Commonwealth country.
The invitation followed a meeting with Pakistan’s then prime minister Benazir Bhutto in 1989 in the Wimbledon royal box at a tennis match.
The trip was then delayed for two years after a military coup which saw Bhutto overthrown, but Diana remained keen to go and eventually got her wish.
The tour saw her attend formal cultural events, lay a wreath at Commonwealth war graves and visit the Mughal mosque of Badshawi in Lahore.

However she also went to a drug detoxification unit and visited a centre for disabled refugees where she learned about landmines for the first time.
The trip was a huge success as Diana was mobbed by well-wishers at a time when she faced speculation about the breakdown of her marriage with Prince Charles.
His geography background – he studied it at St Andrew’s University – was also mentioned during the engagement, prompting amusement from the couple.
The duke said: ‘Dr Warren, my geography teacher, would be well impressed that I’m back at a glacier after all these years.’
‘I’ve been very impressed by William’s geography,’ a smiling Kate said.
William appeared eager learn more about the glacier, asking expert Dr Furrukh Bashir about the glacier’s size and flooding. He asked: ‘Do the glaciers flood at any time of year?’
The duchess wore a long taupe-coloured skirt and a darker coloured shirt under a leather vest for the visit.
She opted for flat knee-high brown boots suitable for the rocky terrain, and accessoried with gold earrings and a beige pashmina, while William wore a teal shirt and beige chino trousers.
Glaciers in the mountain range which joins together in northern Pakistan – the Hindu Kush, Karakoram and the Himalayas – provide water for 1.6 billion people.
There are more than 5,000 reasonable sized glaciers in the area but nearly 70 per cent of them are retreating, according to Dr Bashir, of the Pakistan Meteorological Department.
A glacier – made of highly compressed snow, which turns to ice – needs more snowmelt than snowfall and low temperatures found at a high altitude, he said.
Global warming has seen the Chiatibo Glacier retreat by some 32ft (10m) per year due to higher temperatures melting the ice.
The first threat from the glacier melting is flooding to communities down stream, while the second is removing the water supply completely – which provides for 200 million people in Pakistan.
‘Scientific communities have agreed global warming is causing glacial retreat,’ Dr Bashir said.
‘These glaciers are retreating and telling you that climate change is real, global warming is real. A quarter of humanity are dependent on these glaciers.’

In a speech yesterday evening, the duke urged the UK and Pakistan to ‘work together’ amid an ‘impending global catastrophe’ over climate change.
How the Chitrali hat has its origins among the ancient Macedonians
The Chitrali or Pakol hat is normally worn by men in Pakistan and Afghanistan
The Chitrali hat, or Pakol, has its roots in the kausia hat which was worn by the ancient Macedonians and is believed to have been popularised by Alexander the Great and veterans of his campaigns in India.
The flat, woollen hat is normally worn by men in Pakistan and Afghanistan in a variety of colours such as a brown, black or grey.
In recent decades it has been popularised further by its appearance in Bollywood films, and production of the cap nowadays is centred in Chitral.
The hat looks like a bag with a round bottom before the wearer puts it on by rolling up the sides to form a thick band, which then rests on the head like a beret.
On the visit of the duke and duchess, who are hoping to highlight climate change issues in the area, Dr Bashir said: ‘They are highly influential people and they have a permanent position.
‘If we convince them that this is happening because of climate change, global warming, greenhouse gases. Hopefully they will advocate to reverse global warming and climate change.’
Following the glacier excursion, the couple will remain in the region to meet with communities affected by climate change.
They are expected to watch emergency response drills in a village in Chitral, which saw extensive damage from flooding in 2015.
The couple hope to highlight the effect of global warming during the visit, which will also see them travel to a village in a valley of Chitral.
Isolated communities in the area have suffered from flash flooding in recent years as a result of the glaciers melting.
While in the Chitral valley, the couple are also due to explore a site damaged in severe floods in 2015, to meet the local community and hear how they are adapting their way of life in response to climate events.
William and Kate are expected to witness a drill conducted by volunteers from the local emergency response team – who are supported by UK aid – which was instrumental in preventing loss of life in 2015.

Royals fly to Pakistan with journalists on £10million RAF Voyager aircraft
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge flew to Pakistan on the British Government’s official Voyager aircraft, courtesy of the Royal Air Force.
Reporters including the Daily Mail’s royal correspondent Rebecca English joined the royals on the flight.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrive in Pakistan on Monday on the British Government’s official Voyager aircraft
The couple were relaxed and talkative on the flight, arriving at Pakistan Air Force Base Nur Khan, Rawalpindi on Monday at 9.30pm local time (5.30pm UK).
The Airbus A330 plane can in civilian configuration carry 335 passengers, although it is instead fitted with 58 business-class seats and 100 economy seats.
The plane was first unveiled in July 2016 when David Cameron was prime minister and nicknamed ‘Cam Force One’ after America’s presidential jet.
The aircraft is based at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire and was refitted for £10million to provide transport for ministers and members of the Royal Family.
The Cambridges’ use of a Government aircraft with media on board follows criticism of William’s brother Prince Harry and his wife Meghan over the summer for taking four journeys by private jet in 11 days despite their campaigning on environmental issues.
It comes after the Duke used a speech at the historic Pakistan Monument yesterday to draw attention to ‘spectacular’ glaciers melting in the area.
He told a reception in Islamabad last night: ‘Tomorrow we will be seeing some of these impacts first hand and meeting some of the communities adjusting to the new realities and new challenges that climate change has brought to their towns and villages.
‘I hope to learn what more we all can do to help prevent and mitigate this impending global catastrophe.’
Yesterday, the royal couple had a busy first day of engagements, which included visiting a government-run school in the capital Islamabad and meeting Prime Minister Imran Khan.
They ended the day at the reception, hosted by the British High Commissioner for Pakistan Thomas Drews, after arriving in an auto rickshaw.
The Duke also raised the issue of climate change in his speech at the reception, saying that the country’s glaciers were under threat and as a result its water supply.
‘For a country so young, Pakistan has endured many hardships, with countless lives lost to terror and hatred.
‘Tonight I want to pay tribute to all those who have endured such sacrifice and helped to build the country that we see today,’ he said.
‘Whether in Pakistan or the UK or elsewhere on our planet – we face shared global challenges.
‘The effects of climate change threaten the present and the future – and therefore demand a concerted effort by everyone.
‘In Pakistan, your spectacular glaciers – and those of the wider Hindu Kush-Himalaya region – serve as a critical water store for a quarter of a billion people.
‘And over 1.6 billion people rely on the great rivers that flow from the mountains in this part of the world.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at a reception at Pakistan’s historic national monument last night
At the event last night, William described Britain’s support for Pakistan’s frontline role in the fight against terrorism
‘Yet, because the effects of global warming at altitude, a one and a half degree Celsius temperature increase overall could mean warming of over two degrees Celsius for northern Pakistan’s highest mountains.
How the Hindu Kush’s historical significance extends to Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan
The Panj River and the Hindu Kush mountains in Afghanistan
The Hindu Kush mountain range runs along the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, with the region it covers home to 250 million people.
Some 1.65 billion people are thought to rely on the rivers that flow from the peaks into countries which also include India and China.
However a report in February found that at least a third of the glacier range in the Himalayas are expected to have melted by 2100 even if carbon emissions are dramatically cut.
The mountainous region, which runs from Afghanistan to Myanmar, has been dubbed the ‘third pole’ of the earth because it has more ice than anywhere outside the Arctic and Antarctica.
Mount Tirich Mir is the highest peak, rising near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border to 25,230ft (7,690m).
The range has great historical significance, in that invaders from Central Asia brought their Indo-European language through the high passes in around 1500 BC.
The mountains have also provided access to the northern plains of India for such conquerors such as Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan. The name derives from the Arabic for ‘Mountains of India’.
‘This could lead to a loss of over a third of these vital glaciers in less than a century, with enormous impacts not only on the availability of water, but on agriculture and hydropower generation.’
The second in line to the throne’s sherwani buttoned coat was by Karachi-based designer Naushemian, while Kate wowed in a Jenny Packham dress in the national colours of dark green and Onitaa earrings, sourced from Pakistan. William also sported a pair of cashmere slippers made by Arthur Sleep at its factory in London.
Kate’s £290 earrings were gold plated with uncut crystal stones and were made especially for the duchess.
Their tuk tuk arrival did cause some issues however, with drivers in Islamabad taking to Twitter to report a blockage of key roads tonight to allow the royals free passage across the city, with videos showing huge jams that left families stuck in their cars during rush hour.
The couple met with well-known individuals from business, the creative arts, music and film industry, and members of Government at the monument on the western Shakarparian Hills.
The event showcased Pakistani music and culture, and a speech by the Duke showed the UK’s support for the Commonwealth country, which he called a ‘key partner and friend’.
Earlier, the Duke shared a touching exchange with schoolgirls in Pakistan about their love for his late mother Princess Diana today as he also met the country’s Prime Minister on a royal tour with wife Kate.
The couple visited the Islamabad Model College for Girls in the capital, touring classrooms and posing for a group picture with some of the young students, ranging from kindergarten age students to sixth formers.
William was told the girls were ‘big fans of your mother’. He gave a broad smile and said: ‘You were, really? Oh that’s very sweet of you. I was a big fan of my mother too. She came here three times. I was very small.’

Tuk Tuks: Three-wheeled taxis seen in Africa and Asia… and also Bond
While tuk tuks are most commonly seen in crowded cities of Asia and Africa, they originate in their current form from Italy shortly after the Second World War.
The vehicles were designed by the same engineer behind the Vespa motor scooter, and soon became popular on cramped roads thanks to their compact size.
The vehicle famously featured in 1983 film Octopussy, which saw it involved in a classic James Bond chase scene through the streets of Udaipur in India.

The vehicle was built upon the frame of a 1982 Honda 250R ATC three-wheeler, and featured in the film when 007, played by Roger Moore, had just beaten the exiled Afghan prince in a game of backgammon.
In May this year, a freight firm boss from Essex set a new tuk tuk land speed record, having purchased the three-wheeled vehicle during a ‘boozy night on eBay’.
Matt Everard, 46, of Billericay, set a speed of 74.306mph in the 1971 Bangkok taxi in North Yorkshire, having been set a target of 68.35mph by Guinness World Records.
The five-day visit to Pakistan, following in Diana’s footsteps in 1997, is designed to champion the importance of quality education, and highlight how girls benefit from pursuing higher education and professional careers.
The visit is the first time a Royal Family member has set foot in Pakistan for 13 years due to violence and terrorism that has blighted the country, including the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto in 2007.
Former international cricketer Mr Khan was a friend of Diana, Princess of Wales – who visited a cancer hospital in Lahore as a guest of him and his then wife, Jemima Goldsmith, in May 1997, just three months before her death.
The Duke reminded Mr Khan how the then cricketer told him he wanted to be Pakistan’s Prime Minister years ago.
William recalled how everyone laughed at a gathering in Richmond-upon-Thames in 1996 when the former Sussex and Worcestershire cricketer announced his political ambition to the then teenage Prince William and Diana.
Diana had taken him to see Mr Khan and his then wife, Jemima Goldsmith, at the Goldsmith family home in Richmond.
Mr Khan, who was finally elected Pakistani Prime Minister in July 2018, suggested it had been as hard a slog as his earlier career as a Test cricketer.
‘When I went with my mother to see a Test match my cousin was playing and he scored a century and I told my mother I wanted to be a Test cricketer,’ he said.
‘I never realised how difficult it was to eventually become one.
‘Similarly, when I told you that I wanted to succeed I didn’t realise it would take me 22 years.’

Who is Maheen Khan? Fashion Pakistan Week boss who designed Kate’s kurta for historic trip
The Duchess visits Margalla Hills in Islamabad today
Kate dazzled crowds as she stepped out in a traditional blue kurta and scarf by Maheen Khan, an international Pakistani designer and costume designer.
The kurta is a long loose-fitting collarless shirt, with the style originating in India. The clothing has its roots in Central Asian nomadic tunics.
Ms Khan opened her first shop in Lahore, ‘The Seamstress’, in 1972 and has since taken part in 20 international shows.
She is the chief executive of Fashion Pakistan Week and has had her collections featured at Milan Fashion Week as well.
Designer Maheen Khan, at Fashion Pakistan Week in 2009
Ms Khan was recently dubbed the ‘Coco Chanel of the East’ and is renowned for her flattering cuts and mastery of the use of chiffon.
She was commissioned by Harrods to make a replica of the Queen’s coronation dress for the 60th anniversary celebrations, but ultimately it wasn’t used so she presented it to the British High Commission in Karachi instead.
His wife Kate, who was wearing white trousers by the Pakistani designer Maheen Khan, an emerald green tunic by Catherine Walker and a navy patterned scarf by Satrangi, another local designer, and earrings by the Pakistani firm Zeen, interjected: ‘You stuck with it.’
The Prime Minister was recalling his friendship with Diana when journalists were allowed into his chamber for a few seconds to see the royal couple meeting him today at his official residence in Islamabad.
They spoke about one of the places that the royal couple will visit tomorrow – the destination is currently under wraps – and Mr Khan said he thought Diana might have been there before.
Mr Khan, who was married to Jemima Goldsmith between 1995 and 2004, uses the residence – known simply as The Prime Minister’s House, for official entertaining but actually lives in his private house on the outskirts of the capital.
The Oxford-educated politician studied politics, philosophy, and economics at Keble College in the city of dreaming spurs between 1972 and 1975 before becoming a professional cricketer.
He comes from a family of distinguished sportsmen: eight of his cousins have played first class cricket and two of them, Javed Burki and Majid Khan were also leading lights of the national Test team.
William and Kate and their entourage stayed at the residence for lunch.
The couple also met with President Arif Alvi who recalled how as a boy he ran along a street in Karachi to catch a glimpse of the Queen during her 1961 state visit to his country. ‘It was miraculous to see her’ he said.
William and Kate joined President Arif Alvi, first lady Samina Alvi, the foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and his wife Mehreen, at the Presidential Palace in Islamabad.
William spoke of the Prince of Wales’s visit to Pakistan in 2006, while the duchess sat and chatted with the first lady, who asked her about their first engagement of the day at the Islamabad Modern College for Girls.
‘It’s really great, a very positive environment for children,’ Kate said.
During their meeting, the President and first lady also exchanged gifts with William and Kate.

From cricket legend to Pakistan’s PM: How Imran Khan became leader of his home nation
Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad today
Former Pakistan international cricket captain Imran Khan was elected as prime minister of the country in July 2018
Mr Khan had been pursuing power in his homeland since leaving London in 1996 to enter politics, putting such a strain on his marriage to the British heiress Jemima Goldsmith that they divorced in 2004 after nine years together.
The Oxford-educated former London playboy pledged to build a ‘new Pakistan’ when he addressed the nation on TV following his victory.
He also vowed to tackle corruption that was ‘eating our country like a cancer’, pledged good ties with neighbour India and said he would seek ‘a more equal relationship’ with the US.
His election victory followed a tumultuous campaign – capped by a suicide bomber killing 31 at a ballot booth on polling day – which was also marred by reports of meddling and intimidation by the military.
Known mainly in the West as a talented sportsman and infamous playboy, he presented a significantly more conservative and devout face to Muslim-majority Pakistan.
His Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, founded in 1996, governed northwestern Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province for five years but had to settle for a handful of seats nationally after the 2013 election.
However, he took advantage of the fall of Nawaz Sharif and a poor campaign by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) to become prime minister last year.
The Cambridges pulled up tiny chairs so they could sit and chat to pupils in their classroom at the school, which also teaches young boys – and they also used the occasion to talk about the importance of mental health.
Sitting in the classroom with a group of teenagers, Prince William – who will, of course, be king one day – was asked what he had wanted to do when he was younger after Aima, 14, told him that she wanted to be a brain surgeon.
He said: ‘Actually I changed a lot as I got older but I always wanted to learn to fly. I was flying for a while actually.
‘I love flying, I feel very free, I like learning a skill, I enjoy that. I can relate the science of what you do.’
Inside the school the couple first sat with a group of kindergarten children, aged around four, as they learnt about numbers and counting under a sign which read: Work Hard, Be Smart.
‘Well done, very good,’ said the prince, who introduced himself by shaking each of their hands, as they chatted.
They also met a class of youngsters aged 10 to 12 who were told by their teacher: ‘We have some guests in our class, can we welcome them?’
‘Hello, welcome, nice to meet you,’ the children chorused.
In the science room, William and Kate chatted at length with a group of 14-year-olds wearing headscarves. ‘This is the science class, yes?
‘Some of the girls were saying that science is their favourite subject at school,’ asked the duchess.
William added: ‘Do you remember the periodic table? I know that a long time ago, but Catherine you remember it well, don’t you?’
‘Do you get to do a lot of experiments?’ Kate asked, ‘your English is all so good.’
Her husband added: ‘We are trying to learn Urdu as we go on, we only know a few words now, but we hope to get better. ‘
