Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, are to arrive in Pakistan’s capital Islamabad on Monday for the first royal trip to the country in more than a decade.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be accorded a red-carpet welcome for their first visit to the country.

The five-day visit will be held under special security arrangements being supervised by the military.

“This is the most complex tour undertaken by The Duke and Duchess to date, given the logistical and security considerations,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.
