- During the royal tour of Pakistan, Prince William met some young schoolgirls who told him that they were "big fans" of his late mother, Princess Diana.
- In response, the Duke of Cambridge told the girls that he was also a "big fan" of his mom.
- Princess Diana visited Pakistan on multiple occasions during the '90s.
Prince William and Duchess Kate encountered some young Princess Diana fans during their royal tour of Pakistan.
While visiting the Islamabad Model College for Girls on day two of the visit, a few teenagers told the Duke of Cambridge about their admiration for his late mother, according to People. Aima, a 14-year-old student, said that she and her friends are "big fans" of Princess Diana.
"You were, really?" Prince William reportedly replied, smiling. "Oh, that's very sweet of you. I was a big fan of my mother too."
He continued, referring to multiple visits that his mother made to Pakistan in the '90s. "She came here three times. I was very small. This is my first time, and it is very nice to be here and meet you all."
Inevitably, comparisons to Princess Diana have been abundant since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Pakistan to begin their five-day tour. Kate channeled the late princess right off the bat, when she stepped off the plane wearing an aqua-blue ombré dress and matching pants by Catherine Walker, a modern way of wearing the traditional shalwar kameez.
Similarly, during Diana's 1996 visit to the country, the princess wore a long, light-blue top and loose pants.
