Sharing her own thoughts about the royal tour of Pakistan, which she completed with husband Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge wrote, “The community at the SOS Village is built around family—and the best possible family you could imagine—where everyone comes together to nurture, love and protect the children in their care.”

She continued, “These vulnerable children, many who have come through traumatic circumstances, are nurtured in this caring environment and are able to form these quality relationships that they so desperately need to thrive. — Catherine.”

During her CNN interview, Kate said of the royal tour, “It’s been fantastic, we’ve seen a lot of Pakistan, a huge variety. It was amazing seeing some of the geography, but then to see some of the community activities like this has been really special.”

Of the importance of the visit, she explained, “There’s so many vulnerable women here but they’ve really used their positivity and the support that the Village here provides them, really to support and protect the next generation of children in their care and give them the best possible start to their future lives.”
