Prince William and Kate Middleton spent the day in Lahore Thursday for the fourth day of their royal tour of Pakistan. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s itinerary for the day included, among other things, a visit to the Badshahi Mosque, a trip to a children’s village, and a tea party with children at the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital, which Will’s mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, famously visited in 1996 and 1997.
In a segment for CNN’s New Day, William discussed the environmental and conservation issues that contributed to his and Kate’s decision to visit the country.
“Catherine and I thought it was really important to come into Pakistan and one, again, see all the different range of environments there are in Pakistan and really try to get the feel of the country, but also to use our voice, to lend our position and our visit to, kind of, talk about climate change, issues about the environment, and we’ve see around the world now, the young are getting very engaged in what’s going on,” he said in a piece reported by CNN’s anchor and correspondent Max Foster.
