If you were wondering how long it would be before Kate Middleton stepped out in a showstopping evening gown during the royal tour of Pakistan, the answer is less than 24 hours. After landing in the country yesterday, she and Prince William spent the day taking part in royal engagements that required a slightly more relaxed wardrobe. But as the royal couple arrived by rickshaw to the National Monument in Islamabad for a glamorous evening reception, they did so in style, dressed in complementary dark green outfits that will go down in royal fashion history.
They royal couple's his-and-hers looks were perfectly chosen for the occasion, reflecting the principal colour of the flag of Pakistan. Kate chose a heavily embellished emerald green beaded and sequinned gown by Jenny Packham, while William eschewed his usual tuxedo for a teal sherwani.
