Thank you. I must have gotten my days mixed up.

Yes, but it’s only +3 for continental Europe (where victor1319 and I are).

How bad is the current situation in Pakistan where the Cambridges' itinerary is on lockdown?.

Well the FCO seems to have plenty of travel warning for brits going there:
https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/pakistan

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to:

the areas in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province formerly known as the Federally Administered Tribal Areas
the districts of Charsadda, Kohat, Tank, Bannu, Lakki, Dera Ismail Khan, Swat, Buner and Lower Dir in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa
the city of Peshawar and districts south of the city, including travel on the Peshawar to Chitral road via the Lowari Pass
northern and western Balochistan Province
travel on the Karakoram Highway between Islamabad and Gilgit
the immediate vicinity of the Line of Control


The FCO advise against all but essential travel to:
the Kalesh Valley, the Bamoboret Valley and Arandu District to the south and west of Chitral in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa
the city of Quetta
areas of Sindh Province north of, and including, the city of Nawabshah


Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Pakistan. There’s a high threat of terrorism, kidnap and sectarian violence throughout the country, including the major cities of Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore and Karachi. Foreigners, in particular westerners, may be directly targeted. On 11 May 2019, armed militants attacked the Pearl Continental Hotel in Gwadar, Balochistan. On 8 May 2019, a bomb exploded near a police vehicle outside Data Darbar shrine in central Lahore. You should be vigilant, try to avoid all crowds and public events including political gatherings and religious events throughout Pakistan, and take appropriate security precautions.

Densely populated and unsecured areas, such as markets, shopping malls, hotels, restaurants, airports, public transport, schools and educational institutions are potential focal points for attacks. You should be extra vigilant at all times in such areas and minimise your exposure to areas that pose a higher risk.


Not exactly a holiday

I've spent a lot of time in Pakistan. It has security issues, but they host world leaders including higher-level targets than William/Kate.

Caution is important, but they will be very well protected.

I am excited to see this beautiful country showcased as only a royal tour can.

I hope the trip goes well. Is Pakistan still such an insecure country?

Canadian government doesn't recommend non-essential travel to Pakistan for security reasons.

There are obviously areas of higher security risks then others, but still.

Kate and William thankfully have a good security team going with them. And all precautions are being taken for their safety. Including their flight. Not the same as a normal citizen who might consider travel there.

If there is a high concern for safety why announce the day and hour the Cambridges arrive in Pakistan in advance, as well as the transport?

According to Chris Ship “The security for this week’s visit to Pakistan, by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will be the highest of any royal tour since the Queen’s visit to Ireland.” So that’s saying something.

Also before the visit has even started #RoyalVisitPakistan is the third highest trend in Pakistan.

The decision to release any information would have only been taken after consultations with the security apparatus.

In some areas at least it seems so.

Typically when you see flights arranged to come in during night time it is for security reasons as well.

This channel will have live coverage



Red carpet is out and stairs moving into place

They’re getting ready. There’s an honour guard.

The interactions between the Cambridges and the children on the live feed were adorable. The little boy was clearly not on board with the whole thing, and I thought William and Catherine handled that very sweetly.

It was interesting to watch the press streaming off the back of the plane, there were so many of them. Do we know the number of staff and the number of press who are along for the tour?

A very well done arrival, and now hopefully everyone can get some sleep and a strong start tomorrow.
