Day four of Kate Middleton and Prince William's royal tour of Pakistan is well underway, and the Duchess of Cambridge has already worn two new outfits by Pakistani designers during her four events in Lahore so far.

Kate began the day in a shalwar kameez by Pakistani textile company Gul Ahmed. She paired it with a shawl by Pakistani designer Maheen Khan.

Kate and William first visited the SOS Children's Village before going to the National Cricket Academy. The couple played cricket, and the Duchess of Cambridge sensibly changed into sneakers and put her hair up in a ponytail.

We've had such an amazing time walking around the village and learning all about your lives. We have been really moved and touched by what we have seen, and by the happy home you have made.

I'm aware that many of you have experienced extremely difficult times in your lives. But it is inspiring to see how you have used your strength and positivity to help transform the lives of so many young children here.

Being here in Pakistan this week, William and I have seen on several occasions how family is at the heart of your culture.

Parents, children, aunts, uncles, grandparents all play important roles–you have reminded us exactly what family means. You have shown us too that it is not simply a term that describes the relationship between blood relatives—instead it describes those special bonds we share with those who make us feel safe and supported. It is the quality of those relationships that matters.

Earlier this year, I talked about the fact that it takes a village to raise a child. The village we have seen here today is the best representation of that ideal that I could have possibly imagined. Together as a village you are transforming children's lives and providing them with strong foundations to support all their families.

You have created a home, where children are given the love, protection, and support that will enable them to have a fairer chance in life. Here, women who were once vulnerable, now play the most vital of roles as mothers and it is most heartening to see that you are not doing this alone.
