The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge returned to a children’s orphanage during their royal tour to Pakistan at her request after their flight was grounded by a storm.
The royal couple had been forced to sleep overnight in the Punjab capital when their RAF Voyager plane was unable to return to Islamabad because of bad weather and turbulence.
As aides hastily redrew the tour schedule, cancelling a trip to the Khyber Pass, the Duchess said she wanted to return to the village where she had spent Thursday morning.
The 10-acre site established in 1977 is attached to a school and provides a home and family structure to over 150 orphaned young girls and boys ranging from babies to 18-year-olds.
On their return visit, the couple met some of the young “graduates”, who had been supported by the SOS Village and gone on to mentor some of its younger residents.
