Kate and Prince William to be guarded by 1,000 police officers on Pakistan royal tour

A HUGE security operation involving 1,000 police will swing into force in Pakistan today as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrive on a five-day visit.

They have been sent on the first high-profile royal visit for 13 years to the country which wants to dispel its image as a terrorist haven.

But a royal spokesman described the trip as “the most complex tour undertaken by the Duke and Duchess to date, given the logistical and security considerations”. 

The last senior members of the Royal Family to visit Pakistan were Prince Charles and Camilla in 2006 when, according to diplomats, the country was less safe than now.

In the ensuing years it was engulfed by terrorism, as the Pakistani Taliban took control of parts of the north and extremists carried out assassinations and suicide attacks.
