Kate Middleton and Prince William have just shared a bunch of pictures from their most recent engagement, which took place at the Aga Khan Centre in London on Wednesday. This engagement comes just two weeks before the two of them go on their royal tour of Pakistan. A short while after the visit, Kensington Palace also shared a few behind-the-scenes photos on Instagram with the caption: “Less than two weeks to go until #RoyalVisitPakistan.”
“Today The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined His Highness The Aga Khan for a special event at the Aga Khan Centre, ahead of their official visit to Pakistan later this month.” In one of the pictures, we can see the royal couple having a meeting with Aga Khan, while in the other photos we can see the royals interacting with dozens of people from Pakistan, including community leaders and key figures within the Diaspora community.
The message continued: “Organised in co-operation with the High Commission of Pakistan, today’s event showcased modern Pakistani culture, and saw The Duke and Duchess meet a range of people from Pakistan, including community leaders, those involved in British and Pakistani business, and key figures within the Diaspora community, including musicians, chefs and artists. The Aga Khan Development Network (@AKDN) has been working in Pakistan for over a century to improve the quality of life, promote pluralism, and enhance civil society.”
The Aga Khan Centre in London is the HQ for the Aga Khan Foundation, the Aga Khan University’s Institute for the study of Muslim Civilizations, and the Institute of Ismaili Studies. The organizations goals are to promote a better understanding of Muslim cultures and to connect the public to global development issues. Prince William and Kate will be on an official visit to Pakistan from Monday 14th to Friday 18th October 2019, at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
