"We were on a voyageur Government plane, the Queen’s plane used by the heir to the throne and the Prime Minister and he was discussing all sorts of issues. Why are we here? Why are we going to Pakistan? The importance of security all of these things all off the record. I saw him really mature in that respect."

Meanwhile, Prince William said in the documentary: "We are involved with Pakistan for a good reason, it will keep safe in the UK. What happened here it directly correlates with what happens here."
