The Duchess of Cambridge has penned the most adorable letter to Pakistani fashion designer Maheen Khan, thanking her for helping dress her during her recent official royal tour.

During Will and Kate’s five-day tour of Pakistan in October, she wore several chic and conservative outfits, including two Shalwar Kameezes designed by Khan.

Last week, the designer shared a photograph on Twitter of a letter she’d received from the Duchess, in which the royal thanked her and her team for designing several key pieces of her royal tour wardrobe.

"Thank you so much for all of you help ahead of my tour to Pakistan," the letter reads.

"I am so grateful to you and your team for designing such a wonderful selection to choose from – although having so many beautiful things did make decision making a little more difficult! I really enjoyed wearing both of your outfits – and the trousers were such a great fit too. So thank you for all the time and effort put in to everything."

Kate continues to say that she and her husband Prince William "thoroughly enjoyed" their visit to Pakistan and she loved meeting Khan in person a the Pakistan Monument. "I am sorry it was so short!" she added.

One the outfits designed by Khan was turquoise Shalwar Kameez with gold detailing on the front, which the royal wore for her official visit to the Badshahi Mosque, and a pair of white trousers for a meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan at the Presidential Palace in Islamabad.

During the visit, the 38-year-old also wore designs by Jenny Packham and Catherine Walker.
