THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WILL VISIT THE AGA KHAN CENTRE AHEAD OF THEIR TOUR OF PAKISTAN

King’s Cross, London

Wednesday 2nd October 2019

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend a special event hosted by His Highness The Aga Khan at the Aga Khan Centre on Wednesday 2nd October. The event falls ahead of Their Royal Highnesses’ official visit to Pakistan, which will take place between Monday 14th and Friday 18th October.

Organised in cooperation with the High Commission of Pakistan, the event will showcase modern Pakistani culture and will allow the Duke and Duchess to meet a range of people from Pakistan, including community leaders, those involved in British and Pakistani business, and key figures within the diaspora community, including musicians, chefs and artists.

The Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) has been working in Pakistan for over a century to improve the quality of life, promote pluralism, and enhance civil society. Through its development agencies, AKDN works with thousands of local communities and provides a broad range of services across the country, including school improvement programmes, financial inclusion, conservation projects, and healthcare facilities.

The Aga Khan Centre in London’s King’s Cross is a place for education, knowledge, cultural exchange and insight into Muslim civilisations. The centre is home to the Aga Khan Foundation, the Aga Khan University’s Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations, and the Institute of Ismail Studies.

The organisations work together to bridge the gap in understanding about Muslim cultures and to connect the public to global development issues.
