British royals Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, will be arriving in Pakistan on Monday (October 14) for the first royal trip to the country in more than a decade.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be accorded a red carpet welcome in the capital Islamabad on their first visit to the country.
Special security arrangements supervised by the military will be in place for the five-day visit during which they will meet the president and prime minister.
"This is the most complex tour undertaken by The Duke and Duchess to date, given the logistical and security considerations," Kensington Palace said in a statement.
"Whilst The Duke and Duchess's programme will pay respect to the historical relationship between Britain and Pakistan, it will largely focus on showcasing Pakistan as it is today - a dynamic, aspirational and forward-looking nation," the statement said.
The British High Commissioner in Pakistan Thomas Drew - in his video message shared on Twitter - said that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would like to see the 'breadth and depth' of Pakistan.
The royal couple will also visit programmes aiming to empower people and learn how communities are adapting to climate change.
They will be travelling over 1,000 kilometres, from the capital to the historical city of Lahore, the mountainous countryside in Pakistan's north and the rugged border regions to the west.
A royal rickshaw has also been prepared for the special occasion - adorned with Pakistan's famous truck art.
In 2006, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, Charles and Camilla, visited Pakistan.
Prince William's mother, the late Princess Diana, had also visited Pakistan in 1996 to attend a fundraising event for a cancer hospital built by cricketer-turned-politician and now Prime Minister Imran Khan.
