The Duchess of Cambridge continued her excursions on the fourth day of the royal tour of Pakistan in a green shalwar kameez and a matching dupatta headscarf which she used to cover her head.

Pakistani designer Maheen Khan is behind the ensemble, with Kate having opted to wear Khan’s pieces several times already this tour.

Earlier today 37-year-old Kate sported a scarf by Khan, and on day two of the tour, she modelled a cobalt design of hers.

Khan has been working in the fashion industry since 1972 and has done embroidery for multiple films and television shows, including Snow White and the Huntsman and The Jewel in the Crown.

While it is not compulsory to cover your head or remove shoes while visiting mosques, it is advised to dress as modestly and as respectfully as possible.

Kate followed in the footsteps of her late mother-in-law Princess Diana , who visited the site in 1991 and also chose to cover her head in respect.

A visit to the Badshani Mosque was also included in the 2006 royal tour of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.
