The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kicked off their five day royal tour on Tuesday as they visited a school, the Margalla Hills National Park and met with Prime Minister Imran Khan.

For the couple's first engagement in central Islamabad, Kate arrived at a children's school wearing an embroidered blue Kurta - a loose collarless shirt worn by people from South Asia - which she paired matching trouser and a scarf, an ensemble made by local designer Maghen Khan.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 37, held a cordial meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan at the Prime Minister House, where a lunch was hosted for the guests. The royal couple also appreciated the initiatives undertaken by the Government of Pakistan to combat climate change and alleviate poverty.

They were welcomed by Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi.

Starting off with a blank canvas, an artist mixed a number of bright coloured paints, including red, yellow, green and blue, before painting the Union Jack, the Pakistani flag and a colourful peackock.

Pakistani media simultaneously aired archive images of Diana with Khan - then a World Cup-winning cricketer who had just launched his political career - during her own visits to Pakistan more than 20 years ago.

Prince William and Kate Middleton headed back to school Tuesday.
