  • Britain’s Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton on Friday left for the United Kingdom after completing a five-day visit of Pakistan, the first royal trip to the country in more than a decade.
  • Earlier in the day, a plane carrying the British royal couple had safely landed in Islamabad, hours after two failed landing attempts in bad weather forced them to fly back to Lahore.
  • In the evening, they attended a star-studded reception, hosted by British High Commissioner to Pakistan Thomas Drew, at the National Monument where William, in his first official address, paid tribute to all the people who “endured sacrifice and helped build Pakistan to the country it is today”.
