Kate Middleton and Prince William have stepped out on the second day of their tour of Pakistan. The couple landed in the country last night and they are set to take part in a five day tour of the country at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The Duchess caught attention in a bright blue kurta and matching trousers during a trip to join children from local schools. The couple took part in various activities to help to highlight Pakistan’s work to meet several of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Kate and William were seen meeting with the school children as they saw the effects of the ‘Teach for Pakistan’ scheme which helps disadvantaged children.
She wore the traditional ensemble for the occasion, including a royal blue kurta with matching trousers and a blue scarf, believed to be from local designer, Maheen Khan.
The loose kurta was in a flattering royal blue shade and had long flared sleeves.
Kate’s design had a v-neckline which was decorated with a white floral pattern around the seam.
She opted for the collarless shirt which is worn in many regions of South Asia.
The design continued down to below her knee and a slit up the side showed off her trousers.
Underneath, Kate wore a pair of matching cigarette trousers and had a long scarf resting over her right shoulder.
The Duchess completed the look with a pair of nude strappy sandals which had a small heel.
She wore a pair of eye-catching drop earrings which had a white and blue jewelled design.
Her hair was down and styled into a side parting with a slight curl at the bottom.
Yesterday, she arrived for the first day of her tour wearing a ombre blue shalwar kameez.
She wore the traditional piece as she stepped of the plane with Prince William.
The Duchess wore the dress with trousers underneath, in a nod to modest culture of the country.
She dressed it up with a pair of high in heeled shoes which were in a pale pink shade.
Kate completed the look with the same earrings she as spotted in today.
