Prince William and Kate Middleton's 2019 visit to Pakistan was massive success and involved many interactions with the media that could help him after becoming king, says royal expert.

In a recent BBC documentary, The Princes and the Press, Sky News correspondent Rhiannon Mills revealed how William was grateful and humble during their flight.

She said: “We were on the plane to Pakistan and asked to go to the front of the plane, and basically told by Prince William, ‘thanks for coming’.

“[It was] really unexpected, he said ‘you should all take this as a group hug’," added Mills.

Royal expert and Sunday Times royal editor Roya Nikkhah added that humility as this will smooth his way in the future.

She told the programme: “Has William making peace with the media smoothed the path towards his time in the monarchy when it comes to it? Yes it probably has.”
