Kate Middleton and Prince William Follow Princess Diana’s Footsteps in Pakistan


Prince William and Kate Middleton have worn a number of traditional outfits on their royal tour of Pakistan, and day three is no exception.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge touched down in the Chitral district of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province on the Afghan border and were gifted with embroidered coats and hats with peacock feathers.

But as the royal couple donned the traditional garments, we were reminded of a very similar outfit William’s late mother Princess Diana wore when she visited the same area.

As Prince William and Kate arrived touched down at the airport, they were given traditional Chitrali hats, a coat each, and Kate was given an extra warm shawl.

Underneath, Kate wore her Really Wild Clothing vest that she wore on a royal tour of India and Bhutan with a new midi skirt and shirt and a pair of brown boots.

They were also given a book commemorating Princess Diana’s 1991 visit that Prince William took a moment to look through.

During her solo visit to Pakistan in 1991, Princess Diana was made an honorary member of the Chitral Scouts’ elite corps and wore a coat and hat that looks just like the one William and Kate are wearing 28 years later.

It’s only been three days, but we’ve already noticed Kate pay homage to her late mother-in-law with her fashion.

Dressed in a stunning turquoise shalwar kameez by Catherine Walker, the Duchess of Cambridge shone as she stepped off the plane at the Pakistani Air Force Base Nur Khan, in the city of Rawalpindi. Princess Diana wore a very similar hue and style of an outfit when she visited the country in the 1990s.

Once more, when Kate wore a royal blue kurta on their second day, royal fans remarked that Princess Diana wore a similarly embroidered design years before.

Prince William and Kate began their day at the Broghil National Park where they walked around the tip of a glacier and saw how much it had retreated due to climate change.

According to Kensington Palace, the royal couple are hoping to “shine a light on the very real consequences of global warming and its devastating effects on our planet.”
