    New Delhi (Sputnik): While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are in Pakistan on a week-long tour, it’s Kate Middleton's traditional outfits that are halting the social media traffic, with netizens gawking at her and drawing comparisons with Princess Diana’s style when she visited the country in 1996.

    The Kensington Palace called the five-day trip the most complex tour taken by the Duke and Duchess to date due to the security and logistical considerations.

    The royal couple’s maiden Pakistan visit is said to be an education-focused tour.

    The couple will visit programmes that empower young people and organisations that help ensure they have the best possible start in life.

    Kate set her foot at Pakistani Air Force Base Nur Khan yesterday wearing an ombre, aqua-blue dress with matching pants – an amalgamation of traditional shalwar kameez with modern dress. Apparently, her outfit was designed by Catherine Walker, who was Kate’s mother-in-law Princess Diana's favourite.

    On Tuesday, Kate again surprised everyone as she stepped out with Prince William in a traditional blue shalwar kameez to visit an Islamabad school. Netizens were left fawning over her elegant and simple looks in the periwinkle blue Pakistani suit by designer Maheen Khan.

    Some eagle-eyed netizens continued to draw comparisons with Lady Diana, as Kate’s attire reminded them of her mother-in-law’s royal visit to Pakistan wearing the same blue-coloured shalwar kameez.

    Netizens couldn’t resist lavishing praise on Kate for her simplicity and elegance.

    Many called her choice of attire an act of respect to Pakistani culture.
