The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are less than two weeks out from their royal tour to Pakistan and ahead of the upcoming tour, they joined His Highness The Aga Khan for a reception celebrating the Pakistani culture, at the Aga Khan Centre.

Set to visit Pakistan from October 14th to 18th, at the event the couple shared they were looking forward to trying the food, People reports, with Kate revealing she often cooks curry at home for the family – but it requires a bit more work, having to make separate batches for each person’s spice tolerance.

“It’s so hard cooking curry for the family,” Kate admitted.

“The children have a portion with no spice, yours is medium,” she said to William, “and I quite like it hot.”

Adding, “Charlotte is pretty good with heat.”

Prince William said he likes his food medium spicy, to which People reports a guest told him medium spicy does not exist in Pakistan.

“Me and heat – not so good,” William said.

“I love spice but no heat. I’m looking forward to it anyway.

“I’m going to need a bigger suit,” he added.

During the reception, the couple met with a range of people from Pakistan and the Pakistani community in London including musicians, chefs and artists.

Duchess Kate wore a floaty teal dress by ARoss Girl and emerald green pumps to the event, while Prince William stepped out in a dark blue suit and tie.

The couple’s upcoming tour to the Asian country was announced by Kensington Palace in July, revealing the visit was at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The visit marks the royal parents-of-three’s first visit to Pakistan, however other members of the royal family have made visits before, including Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla and the late Princess Diana, who visited multiple times.

The five-day tour will come just weeks after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s 10-day tour of southern Africa, which wrapped up on Wednesday, October 2nd – their first tour as a family.

Prince Charles also has some international trips scheduled in the coming weeks, with a visit to Japan for Emperor Naruhito’s enthronement ceremony planned later this month, before he heads down to our shores in November with Duchess Camilla.
