The KP release notes that while the trip will pay respect and acknowledge the historical relationship between Britain and Pakistan, it will focus more on “showcasing Pakistan as it is today,” and that the Cambridges want to meet as many people as possible. While specific engagements haven’t yet been announced, we do know Prince William and Kate will be making stops in Islamabad, Lahore and undisclosed locales in the countryside in the north and in the west.

The Duchess of Cambridge, especially, has taken on children’s education and youth engagement as one of her main focuses. The tour will also have an environmental facet, looking at how Pakistani people are reacting and adapting to effects of climate change.

This will be Prince William and Kate’s first official tour to Pakistan, though other members of the British royal family have visited in the past. The most recent was Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles’ tour in 2006. Princess Diana traveled to Pakistan in 1996, and Queen Elizabeth embarked on royal visits there in 1961 and 1997.

We do know one aspect of the trip that Prince William and Kate are definitely partaking in—the cuisine. The Cambridges recently went to an engagement at the Aga Khan Center in London in preparation for the upcoming tour, and the future King of England said he loves spice—but not heat. Duchess Kate, on the other hand? She’s a big fan of super spicy curry, which we now know she makes for the whole fam—while her husband prefers it “medium,” she “quite like[s] it hot.”
