LAHORE (Dunya News) – The British royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton, visited Lahore today where they toured historic places along with visiting Shaukat Khanum Hospital and SOS village.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the fourth day of their first royal tour of Pakistan, visited Lahore.

At a meeting earlier in Lahore, the province’s cultural capital, the chief minister of Punjab state Usman Bazdar told the couple their visit “will further strengthen relations between the two countries”.

The couple visited the SOS Children’s Village where they took part in a storytelling session and interacted with the staff and children. The duchess also spoke briefly at the event and wished ‘happy birthday’ in Urdu to a few children.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, visited the National Cricket Academy (NCA) and played cricket with Pakistan players and local kids participating in the British Council’s Dosti programme.

Kate and William then took part in a cricket match including former captains of the Pakistan men and women’s teams, Azhar Ali and Sana Mir. Pakistan’s bowling coach Waqar Younis, also a former men’s captain, umpired the match.

Later, the prince followed in his mother’s footsteps and visited Badshahi Mosque in the city, evoking memories of Princess Diana’s trip to the place of worship in 1991. (The historic Badshahi Mosque was built by Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb Alamgir in 1673)

The British royal couple visited Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in Lahore where they inquired about the health of patients.
