Prince William and Kate Middleton go on a rickshaw ride in Pakistan. Watch video
New Delhi : The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, went on a rickshaw to attend a dinner hosted by the British High Commissioner in Pakistan at the National Monument in Islamabad. 'Yes, you read it right! The royal couple took a rickshaw'.

For the occasion, Kate dressed in a glittering emerald green gown with traditional hanging earrings and Prince William was seen wearing a bandh-gala knee-length sherwani, usually worn for formal occasions or weddings - with matching trousers.

It is our great pleasure to join you here this evening on our first official visit to Pakistan. I would like to begin by saying bahut shukria to you all for making us so welcome in your country. Stood here with this magnificent monument behind me, I am struck by the great strides Pakistan has made since its birth seventy-two years ago. The view from this hill would have been quite different when my grandmother, The Queen, first visited over half a century ago. Looking out, one would have seen the beginnings of a city under construction, yet to become the great capital that it is today. And with successive visits by my mother and my father, this view has continued to change, with the city constantly growing and with it my family’s affection for Pakistan.

The royal couple is visiting Pakistan on a special request of the United Kingdom Foreign and Commonwealth Office. This is the first royal tour to the country since 2006 when the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Charles, and Camilla, travelled to Pakistan.
