The Kensington Royals are currently on their visit to Pakistan for five days from October 14 to October 18, 2019. Prince William with his wife Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, have been visiting around the country, dressed in beautiful traditional clothes.
On the fourth day, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined a group of children for a game of cricket at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore. Several pictures of the event went viral, which shows how much fun did the two have.
According to the People, the royal couple participated in a friendly match wherein two teams were formed consisting of boys and girls from underprivileged backgrounds between ages 10 to 14. It was Kate Middleton who stole the show as she showed off her batting skills. Though she was caught out twice, netizens couldn’t stop gushing over the Duchess’s happy smile.
