Their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince Willian and Kate Middleton will undertake an official visit to Pakistan from October 14 to October 18, 2019, at the request of The Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
This will be their Royal Highnesses' first official visit to Pakistan, a UK government statement said.
The British High Commissioner in Pakistan Thomas Drew said that during their five-day visit starting Monday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would like to see the 'breadth and depth' of Pakistan.
In his video message shared on Twitter, the high commissioner said the visit would largely focus on showcasing Pakistan as it was today -a dynamic, aspirational and forward looking nation.
He said the Royal Couple would have a very exciting program in respect of the historic relations between Pakistan and the UK.

He said the couple would like to see the breadth and depth of the country, including "the modern leafy capital in Islamabad, the vibrant city of Lahore, the mountainous countryside of the north and the rugged border region of the west".
A royal rickshaw has also been prepared for the special occasion - adorned with Pakistan's famous truck art. Will the royal couple take a ride on it?
