After visiting Broghil, they traveled to Bombaret village in Kalash valley.
In Kalash valley, the royal couple met locals and spent time with children. They also enjoyed performances of traditional dances and music by the local people.
A cap traditionally worn by Kalasha women was gifted to the duchess.
A large number of locals including women had welcomed the royal couple upon reaching the valley. Elaborate security arrangements were made for the visit.
“They were very happy, meeting and shaking hands with everyone,” a district administration official said of William and Kate, adding that the couple also took keen interest in the Kalash culture.
Earlier on Wednesday, the royals had flown from Islamabad in a Pakistan Army chopper to Chitral, where they were gifted traditional hats and a book of photos commemorating the trip of William’s mother, Diana, who visited the valley in 1991.
“Fantastic,” the prince remarked as he sifted through the pages of the book. The residents also gifted an embroidered coat to Prince William and a shawl to Kate.
