Kate Middleton stuns in turquoise to visit the same mosque Princess Diana visited 28 years ago

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge followed in the late Princess Diana's footsteps to kick off their fourth day of the royal tour of Pakistan. 

As part of their visit to Lahore on Thursday, the couple toured the iconic Badshahi Mosque and sat in on an interfaith meeting held by some of the community's leaders about promoting interfaith harmony. The mosque is of particular significance for the couple, as it was the site of one of Princess Diana's visits in 1991

In keeping with the mosque's tradition, Duchess Kate wore a stunning turquoise headscarf outlined with intricate gold embroidery with her shalwar kameez designed by Maheen Khan. The couple also removed their shoes before entering the holy site.  

The couple's visit to the Mosque is documented in some incredibly beautiful pictures, as you can see above.

"You have people who are interested listeners and people who are also empathetic and they were very empathetic," described Dr. Leghari, a religious scholar, to the Daily Mail about the Cambridges' visit. "We were really pleased. They were very responsive and very charming."

The couple also paid a visit to Lahore's Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Center, which the Princess of Wales visited in February 1996 with Imran Khan and his then-wife Jemima Goldsmith. Kate, wearing a toy princess crown, and William sat and played with many of the hospital's young patients, including Muhammed, 5, who is currently battling Hodgkin's lymphoma, and Wafia, 7, who has a kidney tumor. 

For more on their visit, watch the video above.
