Kate Middleton wasted no time in putting her own twist on traditional fashion during her royal tour of Pakistan!
The royal mom stepped off the plane in an aqua blue bespoke dress and matching pants by Catherine Walker. The ombre look, featuring a draped neckline, is inspired by the traditional shalwar kameez, a lightweight outfit that pairs a loose-fitting tunic top with pants underneath.
Prince William and Kate kicked off their busy schedule of engagements at the Islamabad Model College for Girls, where the royal embraced Pakistan’s culture and style by wearing a royal blue shalwar kameez — the country’s national dress — and a dupatta by Pakistani designer Maheen Khan. She completed the look with a pair of beige shoes.
For a meeting with Pakistan’s prime minister, Kate changed into an emerald green tunic by Catherine Walker over cream pants from Pakistani designer Maheen Khan. She accessorized her look with a printed green scarf by Satrangi and earrings by Pakistani jewelry designer Zeen (her new go-to!).
For a special reception at the Pakistan National Monument in Islamabad on Tuesday evening, Kate wore the national color, choosing a sparkling deep emerald gown by Jenny Packham.
Prince William had a fashion moment of his own, taking a break from his usual suits to wear a traditional sherwani, a long coat-like garment worn for formal occasions.
On the third day of their royal tour on Wednesday, William and Kate traveled to the mountains as part of their desire to see the effect that climate change on local communities.
Upon arrival, the royals were presented with traditional Chitrali hats as they landed in Chitral the Hindu Khush, near the Afghan border. Kate sported her traditional hat with a warm shawl and colorful embroidered jacket she was also given, which she placed over her leather vest, brown shirt tucked into a belted skirt and flat boots. William, who was given a long white embossed coat, placed his new accessory over his green button-down and slacks.
They kept their outfits casual to witness a retreating glacier.
Kate added a bit of color to her outfit at a village in a valley in Chitral, which has been hit by flash flooding in recent years. During their visit, they witnessed how farmlands have been destroyed by glacier melting. They were also able to hear from locals about how they are changing their way of life.
Kate wore a white shalwar kameez by Gul Ahmed and shawl by Maheem Khan to visit a children’s village and celebrate some of the kids’ birthdays in Lahore.
The royal mom wore a flowing black and white tunic over fitted white pants as she boarded the plane back to Islamabad on Friday morning after electrical storms changed their flight plans the previous night.
Kate wore a black Beulah London Papilio jacket over a white pants ensemble by Élan with flats for the final outing.
“She is a wonderful British ambassador and looks so elegant and chic in our Papilio coat today,” Natasha Rufus Isaacs, co-founder of Beulah label, tells PEOPLE.
