Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton's message for people of Pakistan

ISLAMABAD - The Duchess of Cambridge, in her first ever television news interview, stated that the royal tour of Pakistan with Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, has been "really special."

Kate told CNN the five-day official trip had allowed the couple to see a lot of the country.

"It was amazing seeing some of the geography yesterday, but then to see some of the community activities today has been really special," the duchess said, Prince William standing alongside her.

"William and I really wanted to come and see an SOS Children's Village like this," Kate continued. "There's so many vulnerable women here but they've really used their positivity and the support that the Village here provides them ... to support and protect the next generation of children in their care and give them the best possible start to their future lives."

Moments before, Kate impressed the gathered crowd by delivering the opening remarks of her speech in Urdu.

"You have shown us too that it is not simply a term that describes the relationship between blood relatives," the duchess said. "Instead it describes those special bonds we share with those who make us feel safe and supported. It is the quality of those relationships that matters."

She continued, "Together as a village you are transforming children's lives and providing them with strong foundations to support all their families.
