Prince William, the heir to the British throne, is rarely seen experimenting with his look as the royals are expected to look a certain way at all times. The tall and handsome prince is usually seen wearing Savile Row suits by Gieves & Hawkes or chinos when he wants to go a little less formal with standard blue shirts and boots. Unlike his mother late Princess Diana who was always experimenting with one look or the other and broke the royal dressing rules in many ways, Prince William has been trained to become the king of England since childhood. Hence, the royal is always conservative and careful when it comes to his dressing and etiquette.
The current tour to Pakistan has been the highlight of the media not only because of its sensitivity but also because of his wife Kate Middleton’s fashion choices. The Duchess has worn the traditional Pakistani shalwar kameez thrice in just two days. Her dressing came as a major surprise for the people of Pakistan. Prince William, however, dressed his usual self until the night of the reception by the British High Commissioner in Pakistan came.
As the royal couple stepped out of a traditional Pakistani rickshaw, everyone was amazed to see Prince William sporting green sherwani and pants by Karachi based designer Nauman Arfeen under the brand name Naushemian. Prince William is the first British royal to wear a sherwani.
He wore a traditional nine button-down sherwani which was made from turquoise self-embossed jamawar fabric which was handwoven. The sherwani also had intricate embroidery on the sleeves and the buttons. He teamed well with wife Kate Middleton who was dressed in a forest green sequined gown by Jenny Packham who is one of her favorite designers. Prince William and Kate Middleton exuded the royal vibes despite mingling with the people present at the reception. The couple has won the hearts of the people of Pakistan already with their smiles and warmth.
Apart from his unusual look, Prince William was also praised for his heartwarming speech in which he expressed his gratitude for the people of Pakistan for being warm hosts. According to Prince William, the United Kingdom will always be there for Pakistan and wishes it to succeed even more with time. Prince William mentioned the members of his family who had visited Pakistan in the past and had seen the country developing.
