Britain's Prince William and Kate Middleton will make first visit to Pakistan in 13 years in the autumn at the request of Britain's Foreign Office, according to the Kensington Palace.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are packing their bags to head to Pakistan!

While there has been no confirmation from the Kensington Palace except about the Pakistan visit, the Palace may announce details of the trip in the coming weeks. "The visit will take place in the Autumn".

In her last visit to the republic in 1997, the Queen sparked controversy when she used an address to parliament in Islamabad to call on Pakistan and India to settle their differences. The tour, which the three Cambridge children - Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1 - will not be part of, will see them navigate significant security concerns to celebrate the country's ties with the United Kingdom, the report said.

The High Commissioner for Pakistan, Mohammad Nafees Zakaria, said the government and people of Pakistan welcome the announcement that William and Kate will visit in the coming months.

When Charles and Camilla travelled to Pakistan, their visit was seen as one of the most perilous royal foreign tours for some time. "The two countries enjoy historical links which both sides wish to strengthen further". Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be touring Africa later this year for the first time as a family. "Youths will be added to the decision-making process at the national level", he said, adding that the council will coordinate and work jointly with provincial governments and the federal government.
