A fair amount. I would imagine most if not all of the rota plus their staff/diplomatic staff. This sort of tour, I would expect a fair amount of FO officials with them. 400 press were accredited for the South African tour, including 80+ British and US press so I would imagine this tour is about that size, although likely less American press.

There’s usually a lot of press for a tour like this. Team Cambridge numbers 14 people, including their private secretaries Simon Case and Catherine Quinn and communications secretary Christian Jones. Another four members of the communications team, two assistant private secretaries, two programme coordinators, a PA, an orderly and a hairdresser.

Wouldn't their team of royal protection officers be included in that list? I would imagine that its either two or three RPOs assigned to each royal when it comes to a tour.

I tuned in just as their plane was landing and the highlight for me was the interactions with the children. Both William and Kate getting down more to the kid's level probably made them feel a whole lot more comfortable than they initially were.

Now for a rest and onwards to the rest of the tour.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have touched down in Pakistan at the start of their five-day Royal Tour.

It is Their Royal Highnesses' first official visit to the country during which they will pay respect to the historical relationship between Britain and Pakistan.

Throughout the tour, Their Royal Highnesses will visit programmes which empower young people to ensure they have the best possible start in life, and they will explore how communities in Pakistan are rapidly responding and adapting to the effects of climate change.

This is a complex tour for the couple given the logistical and security considerations, and their engagements are not being made public until the day of each appearance.

The UK has been a key partner for Pakistan, and The Duke and Duchess will meet UK and Pakistan military personnel who are sharing expertise to improve security.

Yep, as expected the couple made a "bella figura" at the arrival.

And their is a difference between on one hand Camilla and Diana, which wore feminized men's wear at the arrival, and Kate which looked like always at such occasions, but with trousers under the dress.

As I said: Bella Figura!

Nice to see the Cambridges have arrived safely. It was interesting to see the traditional dress on the children greeting Catherine as I hadn't seen the male Pakistani dress before.

At a reception on Tuesday celebrating Pakistani culture, the Duke is expected to say: “We share unique bonds, so it will always be in our best interests for Pakistan to succeed. Not least because of the 1.5 million people living in the UK with Pakistani origin, and the fact the UK is one of the biggest investors in Pakistan’s economy. You can always rely on the UK to play an important role as a key partner and friend.”

Via Roya Nikkhah Twitter

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge this morning departed from Royal Air Force Brize Norton for Pakistan and were received this evening in Pakistan by the British High Commissioner to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan (His Excellency Mr Thomas Drew).

Dr Simon Case, Ms Catherine Quinn and Mr Christian Jones are in attendance.

The couple have also, for the first time, brought with them a tour doctor. He’s a friend of William’s from his days with the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Normally only the Queen and the Prince of Wales take a medic with them.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have visited school children in Pakistan to mark the first day of their royal tour to the country.

Catherine and William spoke to pupils at a government-run college for disadvantaged girls in the Pakistan capital Islamabad.

I always love watching Catherine and William interacting with children; you can tell that they genuinely are enjoying themselves, even when William is sitting with his knees up around his ears in those kindergarten seats.

I also thought the photos of the Margalla Hills visit were particularly good.

It makes sense, not only because of William's position in the line of succession, but also because of possible health risks in Pakistan.

Diana and Camilla did not wear “feminized menswear,” they wore shalwar kameez (or at least clothing inspired by shalwar), which is a style widely worn by Pakistani women. Kate’s dress and pants are more like a different style of Pakistani women’s clothing, the anarkali. Two different styles, but both are thoroughly feminine clothes.

Mail Online have updated pics from tonight’s event

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...Islamabad.html

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in an auto rickshaw to a special reception on their second day of the royal tour.

The royal couple travelled to the historic Pakistan Monument in Islamabad on Tuesday evening for an event hosted by Thomas Drew, the British High Commissioner to Pakistan.

The event will showcase Pakistani music and culture. It follows a day which included a meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan and a government-run school for students aged between four and 18.”

I wonder whether that is related to the higher security risk or whether this is just the 'first' and they'll have one from now on.
