The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wrapped up the fourth day of their tour of Pakistan by channelling their inner royals while visiting with young patients at a cancer hospital.
Kate and Wills spent time chatting and playing with several youngsters undergoing treatment at the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre on Thursday.
At one point during their visit, the parents-of-three were invited by Wafia, aged seven, for tiaras and tea which saw future queen Kate don a silver plastic crown.
The Duke, however, remained bare-headed but looked to enjoy sipping his ‘tea’ from a tiny hot pink cup. He later helped another brave boy, five-year-old Muhammed, with his colouring in.
William’s late mother, Princess Diana, visited the very same hospital - which was built by Pakistan Prime Minister - in 1996 and 1997.
Kate and Wills have made sure to honour Diana throughout their trip, including by sporting a near-identical traditional Chitrali hat to the one worn by the late princess in 1991.
Earlier that same day, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge showed off their sporty side when they visited the National Cricket Academy in Lahore.
The couple joined a cricket match with children from the British Council’s DOSTI program, with both Kate and Wills appearing to bowl their young fans - and some Pakistani cricketing legends - over with their batting skills.
According to a post on the @kensingtonroyal Instagram account, the DOSTI program - ‘Dosti’ means friendship in Urdu - aims to ‘promote sport as an integral part of child development, and encourages social integration, increased self-esteem, and the development of important life skills in children’.
Kate’s cricket kicks
For her sporty engagement, Kate swapped the heels she was wearing that morning for a more practical pair of white kicks by British brand, Hampton Canvas.
At just over $50, the trainers are surprisingly affordable and perfectly matched the 37-year-old’s all-white outfit, a custom-made traditional embroidered shalwar kameez by Pakistani brand, Gul Ahmed.
The shoes are in fact a Cambridge family favourite with both Princess Charlotte and Prince George previously sporting the kids versions.
Most recently, four-year-old Charlotte wore a navy blue design in one of the portraits released on her birthday back in May.
