Though this marks the Prince William and Kate Middleton’s first time to Pakistan, Her Majesty The Queen had previously visited Pakistan in 1961 and 1997.

Meanwhile, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall had paid a visit back in 2006.

In 1991, Princess Diana went to Pakistan by herself for the course of three days where she visited Islamabad, Lahore and the Northwest Frontier.

Meanwhile, in a press statement, Mohammad Nafees Zakaria, the High Commissioner for Pakistan said: “The people of Pakistan still cherish and fondly recall the visits of Her Majesty The Queen to Pakistan during 1961 and 1997.”

“The upcoming Royal Visit is a reflection of the importance the United Kingdom attaches to its relations with Pakistan. The two countries enjoy historical links which both sides wish to strengthen further.”
