Okay! So today’s agenda was traveling to Chitral, in northern Pakistan, both because it’s gorgeous there, and to view the effects of climate change and visit a local village.

This is really neat:

I have to say, this would be one of the most amazing parts of marrying into the royal family, to me. Getting to see these parts of the world, and experience this kind of exposure to another culture, is truly a blessing. (It’s obviously a privilege for those born into the royal family as well, but it’s also business as usual for them. On the other hand, if you’re Kate or Meghan [or Bex Porter], it would be a massive change and a very exciting one, I’d think.)

There has been a lot of talk lately about how the royal family’s use of private jets, etc, is impacting the climate crisis (and I think that is legit), but both Harry and William have been talking about climate change a lot lately (and Charles has been an environmentalist since it was considered weird and dorky) and I think that the more people who talk about it, the better.

This is all very interesting, and these photos are amazing:

Clothing-wise, there was a lot of hiking, so we didn’t see anything too thrilling on Kate (she is, in fact, wearing the same vest she wore to hike in when they went to Bhutan; it must be filed under Hiking Vests in her closet). But we did get some neat traditional dress:
