The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William and his wife Kate will begin their tour of Pakistan on Monday, in what will be the first visit by members of the British royal family in more than a decade.

The five day trip will see the pair visit Pakistan’s capital Islamabad, Lahore and parts of the country’s mountainous north, with a focus on climate change, access to education and security.

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla made the last royal visit in 2006.

William’s mother, Princess Diana, visited a Lahore cancer hospital – built by now Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan – twice in the 1990s where she met with patients and raised funds for the institution.
