I was wondering about this, so I can't say I would be surprised. I would be very disappointing for everyone who has worked hard in preparation for the visit, but this might not be the right time.

I forgot about the Cambridge's pending trip to Pakistan. I agree that it would be a shame given the efforts of all who were involved, but as the old saying goes, it's better to be safe than sorry.

Hoping that the trip will be able to continue, but unfortunately the security issues might require the trip to be postponed.

I thought about this when I heard about Kashmir, it would be sad to see the trip cancelled given I'm sure a lot of work will have gone into planning by officials on both sides and W&K themselves. That said, of course safety and security must come first and no one would want to see W&K in danger or indeed having to face raised tension where any action from W&K could upset India or Pakistan.

Unfortunately security issues can cause the trip to be delayed. I still hope that the trip will come to fruition and that everything will go well.

UK is sending its anti terrorism team over to Pakistan

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dai...stan-tour.html

Apparently the situation is still hot to the point details can't be released for security reasons. if there is unconcern that a specialized team needs to be sent DM just tipped them off with the reporting..

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend a special event at the Aga Khan Centre on 2nd October, hosted by His Highness The Aga Khan.

The event falls ahead of TRH’s official visit to Pakistan, which will take place between 14th - 18th October.

A good pre-visit engagement IMO and I'm glad to see that we finally have the dates for the trip to Pakistan.

I am not sure! The Aga Khan is not only the last in a long line of questionable religious leaders, which made a very, very good living on the claim, to be descendants of the Prophet Mohammed. Their key to wealth: The claim to be themselves the only ones which could understand the Quran really... - He is a Shiite too.

And the Taliban have a problem with Shiites and ISIS/Daesh has a problem with the Taliban and the Shiites.

Of course the Cambridges visit him on behalf of the British Foreign Diplomacy, but it is unnessecary and endangers their trip to Pakistan which has a really big security problem.

Btw The respective Aga Khans back then in colonial times were collaborators with the British... while the Afghans, which are now in part Pakistanis, were not.

Palace is giving few details publicly at this stage about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s official visit to Pakistan


" “This is the most complex tour undertaken by the Duke and Duchess to date, given the logistical and security considerations.”"

interesting - i wonder if given the security concerns they will publish an agenda for the visit, or release photos once the events have hapened/shortly before they happen.

i am quite excited, not long to go now!

What does that mean: the events are embargoed? No media allowed?

It means we won’t know the event is happening ahead of time. No agenda or itinerary will be released ahead of them leaving and I imagine we will know where they are going the day of or even, hour by hour.
