Duchess Kate Middleton & Prince William Meet Survivors Effected By Glacial Melting in Pakistan

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton) and Prince William are all smiles while visiting a settlement of the Kalash people, to learn more about their culture and unique heritage on Wednesday (October 16) in Chitral, Pakistan.

The royal couple met with locals whose community was devastated during flooding four years ago. In 2015, the whole village of Bumburet was swept away — although miraculously no one was killed. However, the boulders and flood waters damaged homes, destroyed crops and killed animals.

The couple are on day three of their five day tour of the country. Prince William and Kate‘s visit to the village was seen as “a source of pride” to the locals.

“They’re glad that people are learning more about this. It’s a source of pride. They can’t forget this day,” a translator said (via People).
