The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have shared a short video compilation of their five-day tour of Pakistan to the Kensington Palace Instagram account, which features footage of their royal engagements including previously unseen footage of the couple inside the colourful tuk-tuk which transported them to a special reception at the Pakistan Monument.
Throughout the video, which included footage of the the couple visiting the iconic Badshahi mosque in the city of Lahore, atop the Chiatibo Glacier at Broghil National Park, chatting to children at an SOS Village and playing with puppies at the Army Canine Centre in Islamabad, the couple looked relaxed and happy, often seen sharing laughs together.
Watch the behind-the-scenes footage above.
The tour, which the couple wrapped up on October 18th, was the couple's first visit to the south Asian country and was described by Kensington Palace as the royal couple's "most complex tour to date", due to the logistical and security considerations that needed to be made because due to political tension in the country.
The tour focused largely on highlighting the importance of education, in particular, the importance of quality education for girls and women as well as shining a spotlight on the very real effects of climate change.
The visit also marked an unexpected first for Duchess Catherine, who conducted her very first TV news interview since becoming a member of the royal family, eight years ago.
Speaking to CNN correspondent Max Foster during a visit to an SOS Children's Village in Lahore, Pakistan, Kate, with William by her side spoke of the cause that was very close to her heart.
"William and I really wanted to come and see an SOS Children's Village like this," Kate explained.
"There are so many vulnerable women here but they're really used their positivity and the support that the village here provides them to support and protect the next generation, the children in their care and give them the best possible start to their future lives."

She also spoke of how "fantastic" the visit to Pakistan has been, saying: "We've seen a lot of Pakistan, a huge variety, it's amazing seeing some of the geography but then to see some of the community activities like this has been really special."
Following the couple's visit to the SOS Village, Kensington Palace also shared a message written by Kate to Instagram, who explained the significance of the NGO, which has villages across the world, writing: "The community at the SOS Village is built around family – and the best possible family you could imagine – where everyone comes together to nurture, love and protect the children in their care.
"These vulnerable children," Kate adds, "many who have come from traumatic circumstances, are nurtured in this caring environment and are able to form these quality relationships that they so desperately need to thrive."
While the couple travelled without their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, they were clearly still top-of-mind.
During a visit to Margalla Hills National Park on the second day of their royal tour, Prince William remarked six-year-old Prince George would "love" spotting a monitor lizard, during a slideshow presentation of all the animals which can be found in the area.
Before flying to Pakistan, it was reported that the royal parents-of-three made sure they were able to drop off their two eldest children at school, with William and Kate's departure timed so they were able to do the before-school run.
While their parents were overseas, the three young royals were under the care of their Norland nanny Maria Borrallo and their grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton.
