Pakistani celebrities share their experiences of meeting the royal couple
For most Pakistanis, the past week has been about nothing but the Royal Couple, William and Kate. From their perfect fashion choices to their interactions with the locals to them travelling in a rikshaw, there is no part of their trip that isn’t a highlight for all of us.
During a star-studded reception at the Pakistan Monument, many Pakistani celebrities met with the Royal Couple.
Tamgha-e-Imtiaz recipient Mehwish Hayat, renowned actress Mahira Khan, famous director and actor Shaan Shahid, legendary cricketers Wasim Akram and Muhammad Hafeez, producer and actress Hareem Farooq, actress Sajal Aly, and many more Pakistani celebrities were attendees of the event and got to mingle with William and Kate. Singer Atif Aslam, designer Hassan Sheheryar Yasin, and designer Maheen Khan, the latter of which is the designer of Kate’s Pakistani outfits, were also present.
“It was a real pleasure to meet with the royal visitors last night. William is a real-life Prince Charming and was genuinely excited about being here. I hope that this visit helps show the world the real side of Pakistan and not what media has been showing,” said Mehwish Hayat.
“It was a privilege and an honour to have been one of the few to be introduced to Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. They were incredibly kind, elegant and so very gracious. Getting an opportunity to meet and interact with them was a true pleasure and an experience I will always cherish,” said Hassan Sheheryar Yasin.
