Kate Middleton and Prince William have another royal tour in the books!
After a whirlwind five-day tour of Pakistan, the royal couple boarded a plane back to London at the Pakistani Air Force Base Nur Khan.
They will return to Kensington Palace, where their three children — Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1 — stayed for the tour week under the watchful eyes of their trusted nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, and their grandparents, Mike and Carole Middleton.
Their final day of outings came one day after their flight out of Lahore was forced back by lightning storms on Thursday evening. Despite the change in schedule, the couple made their way to Islamabad to wrap their tour.

The visit has been called Kate and William’s “most complex tour” to date, “given the logistical and security considerations,” said their spokesman. In fact, their various outings were not publicized before the day of each event.
“It will largely focus on showcasing Pakistan as it is today — a dynamic, aspirational and forward-looking nation,” added the palace. “From the modern leafy capital Islamabad, to the vibrant city of Lahore, the mountainous countryside in the North, and the rugged border regions to the West, the visit will span over 1000 kilometers , and will take in Pakistan’s rich culture, its diverse communities, and its beautiful landscapes.”

“It’s been fantastic,” Kate told CNN of the tour. “We’ve seen a lot of Pakistan, a huge variety. It was amazing seeing some of the geography, but then to see the communities like this has been really special.”
