- The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met with the Aga Khan, a spiritual leader and Imam of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims, in London today.
- For the appearance, Kate Middleton wore a teal long-sleeve silk dress and Prince William donned a navy suit.
- The meeting takes place ahead of the couple's official visit to Pakistan later this month.
Kate Middleton slipped into a chic teal and emerald long-sleeve dress for her latest engagement with Prince William today. The Duchess of Cambridge sported the rich, silk look for the couple's meeting in London with the Aga Khan, the 49th hereditary Imam of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims, according to his official website.
The duchess's maxi dress featured a green fabric belt at the waist and bow details at the sleeves. She accessorized with dangling ceramic earrings, a deep green velvet clutch, and matching pumps.
Today's engagement comes days after the duke and duchess visited Birkenhead, England for the naming ceremony of the new polar research ship, RSS David Attenborough. Kate wore one of her favorite Alexander McQueen coats at the time. Before that, her last event was a visit to Evelina London Children's Hospital.
William and Kate's meeting with the Aga Khan today comes weeks before their upcoming trip to Pakistan, which will take place between October 14-18. The Cambridges aren't the only royals to visit the country; the queen was there in 1961 and 1997, and Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall were there in 2006. The forthcoming trip is made at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
When the visit was first announced in June, Mohammad Nafees Zakaria, the High Commissioner for Pakistan, said in a statement that "the Government and the people of Pakistan warmly welcome" the news and "still cherish" the queen's past visits.
