Kate Middleton gave a rare television on Thursday to talk about her and Prince William's royal tour of Pakistan.

William and Kate's visit brought back memories for many Pakistanis who still love the late Lady Diana for her humanitarian work.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stopped by the Badshahi Mosque before heading to Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital.

Their day was jam-packed with engagements reminiscent of the late Princess Diana's visit in the 1990s.

She added that the couple were "charming" and interested and engaged in the discussion.

At a meeting earlier in Lahore, one of Pakistan's largest cities and its cultural capital, the chief minister of Punjab state Usman Bazdar told the couple their visit "will further strengthen relations between the two countries".

The parents of three visited the National Cricket Academy, and while there they joined children participating in the British Council's Dosti programme for a match of Pakistan's national game.

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, recently completed their five-day visit to Pakistan with a flourish.

Dressed in a white, traditional shalwar kameez, Duchess Kate spoke to CNN's Max Foster after she and Prince William visited the SOS Children's Village in Lahore yesterday.

The Duke and Duchess touched down in Islamabad after a terrifying storm forced the royals' plane to turn back from Lahore during a violent lightning storm.

Moments before, Kate impressed the gathered crowd by delivering the opening remarks of her speech in Urdu.

The prince, however, said that learning about the security situation in Pakistan was an objective of their visit.

For the mosque and subsequent children's hospital visit, Kate changed into a teal green salwar suit. Borrallo is often seen helping out with the kids, and she reportedly lives full-time at Kensington Palace, according to People. Meanwhile Kate had a tea party with seven-year-old Wafia Rehmani, and the two donned play tiaras for the special occasion.

The Daily Express' royal correspondent, Richard Palmer, wrote: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are back in Lahore".
