The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge landed in Islamabad on Friday after mid-air turbulence forced them to re-land the plane in Lahore.

Frightening footage recorded on board the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's RAF Voyager plane captures it shuddering and bouncing during a fierce thunderstorm over Pakistan.

For her latest look, Kate Middleton chose to continue her streak with tradition wear as she dons a classic white shalwar kameez by Elan.

The royal couple was seen off at the Nur Khan airbase by British High Commissioner Thomas Drew and other officials.

The change in plans means that the royal couple have had to cancel plans to fly by helicopter to the Khyber Pass today where they were due to meet soldiers from the Khyber Rifles guarding the border with Afghanistan.

Describing the flight as "quite an adventure really", Kate told reporters on Friday that she and the duke had been "looked after so wonderfully".

Prince William also took turns batting with his wife, however the 37-year-old stuck to his usual attire for the game, wearing a casual pale blue shirt and navy blue slacks, swapping formal shoes for a pair of bright blue Nike trainers.

Upon conclusion of a very successful tour, the journalists and crew traveling with the royal couple, have shared their thankyou notes and goodbyes on social media.

A few felt that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were more impressive in their visit to South Africa.

In the afternoon, the royal couple played with puppies on a visit to Islamabad's Army Canine Centre. Thank you @pid_gov, @RoyalAirForce & @JLR_News for all your support!

"In terms of Pakistan's positive worldwide image, the visit has been an unmitigated success", said Rifat Hussain, analyst and a former professor at Quaid e Azam university in Islamabad, though he said there had been some complaints from Pakistanis about the huge security operation around the trip.

Kate and Wills were given a tour of the mosque and courtyard, before joining a discussion with local religious leaders to learn how they are promoting inter-faith harmony within their communities.
