The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton have continued their tour of Pakistan, as they paid a visit to the ancient Bashahi Mosque in Pakistan, barefooted.
The Royal family who are marking their fourth day in Pakistan saw Kate Middleton in a green shalwar kameez and a matching dupatta headscarf which she used to cover her head while visiting the Bashahi Mosque.
According to the report by UK Standard, Kate’s outfit was designed by Pakistani designer Maheen Khan and she has kept to the designer’s pieces since their tour.
The report also stated that the 37-year-old Kate sported a scarf by Khan, and on day two of the tour, she modelled a cobalt design of hers.
Khan has been working in the fashion industry since 1972 and has done embroidery for multiple films and television shows, including Snow White and the Huntsman and The Jewel in the Crown.
A shalwar kameez is the national dress of Pakistan: the shalwar refers to the trousers, which are often loose and baggy, while the kameez refers to a long-line shirt.
Kate covered her head for the visit to the Badshani Mosque with a traditional dupatta, which is a shawl-like scarf commonly worn as part of a shalwar kameez.
For the visit, Kate also shunned shoes and opted to go barefoot.
Kate visited the mosque, an iconic Islamic landmark in Lahore, alongside her husband Prince William.
Kate followed in the footsteps of her late mother-in-law Princess Diana, who visited the site in 1991 and also chose to cover her head in respect.
A visit to the Badshani Mosque was also included in the 2006 royal tour of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, the report had added.
