Duchess of Cambridge sends adorable letter to fashion boss after ‘historic’ Pakistan visit

The Duchess and her husband, Prince William, toured the south Asian nation last month. It was the first major royal visit for years, with the terror threat behind the temporary absence.

After the visit, Kate wrote a note of thanks to Khadijah Shah, creative director of the Elan fashion brand.

Ms Shah posted the note on Twitter, adding her delight at having received it.

In the letter Kate said: “Thank you so much for all your help ahead of my tour to Pakistan.

“I am so grateful to you and your team for the wonderful selection you made for me to chose from.

“Pakistan really is a wonderful country, which we both thoroughly enjoyed visiting and hope to return to one day soon.

“This comes with my warmest thanks and best wishes.”

The letter, dated November 5, was written on Kensington Palace writing paper.
