This is the first high profile visit from Europe to Pakistan's northern areas after UK eased travel advisory to the country due to improvement in the security situation.
Earlier this month, UK envoy to Pakistan Christian Turner, participated in an international skiing event in Malam Jabba an declared Pakistan as ‘wonderful country’.
He congratulated the Pakistan Air Force and the Winter Sports Federation Pakistan for organising the tournament.
“I’ve been told I’m the first British High Commissioner to visit the resort in 15 years or so, and I want to continue travelling all around Pakistan as I get to know this wonderful country.”
Princess Beatrice visit is the second by a Royal Family member in less than a year.
Last year in October, Prince William and Kate Middleton visited Pakistan on a five-day visit. During the trip, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge toured Pakistan's cultural capital Lahore and the scenic valley of Kalash in Chitral.
The royal couple also attended multiple social events including time with kids fighting cancer at the Shaukat Khanum Hospital.
