The royal visit to Pakistan is the most complex that Kensington Palace has ever undertaken and is designed to highlight British links to the country.

On Tuesday, the couple met Prime Minister Imran Khan who has known Prince William since he was a young boy. They also took a tuktuk to visit the Pakistan National Monument in matching custom-made emerald green outfits.
