Duke and Duchess.
Byline: M. Haris Khan - Charsadda
THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton arrived in Pakistan last week for a whirlwind five-day tour where they visited the federal capital, Lahore and our beautiful northern areas.
The royal couple was welcomed by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi at the Noor Khan Airbase. Bouquets were presented by two children wearing traditional dress.
The excursion of our royal guests holds global significance for Pakistan as it gave us centre stage in the world politics.
The UK and Pakistan seek to build strong and lasting relationships with each other.
This visit is highly important as it has improved prospects of our country's tourism sector, logistic and security considerations and boosted the image of Pakistan on the international level.
This historic visit of the royals will go a long way to improve Pakistan's perception on the global stage.
