This whole past week, all eyes have been on the royal couple. The tour of the royal couple has glittered all of Pakistan. Everyone is talking about the Duke and Dutchess. Especially the way they are smoothly blending in with Pakistani culture. It has made Pakistanis even more excited about meeting the royal couple.
Ever since the day, the royal couple landed in Pakistan, the hashtag of #royaltourpakistan has been trending on twitter.
We have already seen Kate Middleton wearing Pakistani dresses and we’ve been adoring it. But, on Tuesday night Pakistanis for the first time saw Prince William in a traditional Pakistani dress. He wore a Sherwani which instantly became another favorite part of the night.
And by another, I mean after the one where the Duke and Duchess got off desi Pakistani sawari. A tuk-tuk. The one which was custom designed for the Royal Visit.
Anyhow, the night was a star-studded reception hosted at Pakistan Monument. The royals arrived at the venue in style. With that Sherwani, coming out of the Rikshaw. That definitely reinforced the strong ties of love Prince William and the royal family with Pakistan.
Prince William further won the hearts of Pakistani by saying “Bohat Shukria” in his speech.
