Kate Middleton shakes off flight horror as she pets hero dogs on Pakistan tour

Kate Middleton beamed as she played with hero military dogs just hours after being caught up in a terrifying mid-air ordeal.

The Duchess was pictured kneeling to stroke the bomb-sniffing puppies in training after commenting on last night's lightning storm during their flight from Lahore to Islamabad.

After multiple attempts to land the plane, they were forced to return to Lahore where they spent the night at the Pearl Continental.

Kate said: "We were looked after so well by the @RoyalAirForce…they did a great job…we are hugely grateful to everyone".

Today, Kate appeared to have put the drama behind her as she stepped out in monochrome traditional wear.


Their first stop was to the Army Canine Centre – modelled on the UK Defence Animal Training Centre.

Kate and William joined dog handlers as they trained dogs to recognise and scout out hidden explosive materials.

They will then see some of the puppies put through their aces on an agility training course.

Yesterday, Kate and William had a jam-packed day following in the steps of Diana who visited Pakistan on a number of occasions in the 90s.

They visited the iconic Badshahi mosque, where Kate stunned in traditonal dress.


Their visit to the Holy Site came almost 30 years after Diana did so.

Kate wore a green Shalwar kameez – echoing that worn by Diana on her own visit.

Their itinerary yesterday began with a birthday party at SOS Children's Village, a charitable organisation in the heart of the city established in 1977. 

They then moved on to National Cricket Academy, where they joined youngsters for a match of Pakistan's national game.

Their tour has been described as the ' most complex royal tour ever ' – involving over 1,000 police officers.

A statement released by Kensington Palace said: "This is the most complex tour undertaken by The Duke and Duchess to date, given the logistical and security considerations.
