Today, on the third full day of the royal tour of Pakistan, Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Lahore by plane.
Kate wore a white “shalwar kameez” of tunic and loose trousers by Gul Ahmed with a shawl by Maheen Khan and $312 Lucie pumps by J. Crew. She carried a clutch bag by Mulberry England.
But while sticklers for tradition might be horrified to see she was wearing white after Labor Day, she carried off the ensemble with aplomb, and it’s unlikely that most people either cared or noticed.
Next stop was the SOS Children’s village, where the couple met the children and Kate made a speech.
The royal couple have a busy schedule ahead of them today. They will visit the Badshahi Mosque, where they will attend an interfaith meeting and tour the Shaukat Memorial Cancer Hospital, which Princess Diana visited in 1991.
They will then attend a cricket showcase at the National Academy, where they will meet some well-known international cricketers and may have a go at the game themselves.
Royal watchers may recall that Middleton joined a cricket match when she visited India, for which she wore wedge sandals. Her J.Crew pumps are unlikely to pass muster, so all eyes will be on the duchess’ feet later on.
Yesterday, the couple visited the Himalayan foothills in northern Pakistan, where Kate wore a traditional Chitrali hat and cloak similar to those Princess Diana wore for her visit in 1991. However, she later switched to a more vibrant version with a feather in spring ’20’s favorite shade of hot pink.
Correction: We previously said Kate’s pumps were by Gianvito Rossi; they are actually J.Crew.
