Remember those royally decorated rickshaws that were all bedazzled for the Royal visit?. Well, it wasn’t just for show because the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a royal entrance in one of those rickshaws and boy, what a moment it was!

Winding up the Royal visit in Islamabad before heading out to other cities, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a special reception at Pakistan National Monument hosted by the British High Commission in Pakistan.

Till this point the Royal visit to Pakistan had been all business. That’s when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had a moment to enjoy the culture and they did, by arriving in a rickshaw.

Check out their cute little entrance here:

Prince William Does a Speech

In his address at the special reception held at Pakistan National Monument, Prince William talked about a number of issues saying global problems are shared problems.

“Whether in Pakistan or the U.K. 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.”

Aside from commenting on Pakistan’s development, Prince William praised our hospitable culture.

“Catherine and I have been honored by the hospitality you have shown us, and we have certainly managed to make our way through a record breaking amount of food so generously offered by our hosts.”

Sherwani and Shalwar Kameez

The fact that Prince William and Kate Middleton were wearing shalwar kameez just added to that.

Funny thing is while Prince William was wearing a teal sherwani by Pakistani designer Naushemian, Kate Middleton was actually a gown by British label Jenny Packham. She paired the glittering gown with statement earrings by Onitaa, a Pakistani brand.

Some people were even cracking jokes about the whole thing.

This is easily the highlight from their visit so far. And we hope to see more of this.
