Prince William Opens Up About Mom Princess Diana During Pakistan Tour

Prince William and Kate Middleton have officially kicked off their royal tour of Pakistan. And for their first outing, the couple headed back to school.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit to Islamabad Model College for Girls on Tuesday. During their time at the school, they toured classrooms of children between the ages of 4 and 18 and discussed the importance of young girls pursuing higher education and eventually professional careers.

The duchess wore a blue kurta by Maheen Khan, including white embroidery along the neckline and accompanied the look with matching trousers, nude flats and drop earrings. Prince William opted for a traditional light blue button-down shirt, black pants and black shoes.

And at one point during the visit, Prince William shared a sweet moment with one of the young school girls, according to People.

Aima, a 14-year-old student, told William that the students were “big fans” of William’s late mother, Princess Diana. (We can totally agree).

“You were, really? Oh, that’s very sweet of you. I was a big fan of my mother too,” William responded. “She came here three times. I was very small. This is my first time, and it is very nice to be here and meet you all.”

She even asked Prince William what he wanted to be when he grew up.

“Actually I changed a lot as I got older, but I always wanted to learn to fly. I was flying for a while actually,” he said. “I love flying, I feel very free and I like learning a skill, I enjoy that. I can relate the science of what you do.”

The couple will spend the next three days in the capital before heading to the city of Lahore then continuing on to rural mountain towns in the northern countryside and border regions in the west.

So yeah, we’re definitely crossing our fingers for more Diana moments like this one.
