Prince William says he and wife Kate are fine after plane twice aborts landing in Islamabad


Britain’s Prince William says he and his wife Kate are “fine” after their plane twice failed to land in Islamabad, Pakistan due to a thunderstorm.

The aircraft carrying the royal couple was ultimately forced to return to Lahore.

The royals are on a four-day visit to Pakistan. They failed to reach Islamabad on Thursday, however, as their RAF Voyager plane was unable to land due to extreme weather conditions.

The pilots attempted to land at Islamabad  International Airport and Rawalpindi air base. They ultimately gave up and decided to return to Lahore.

Upon touching down, Prince William told reporters that he and his wife were fine and joked that the landing issues had been caused by him piloting the plane.

William has previously worked as a search and rescue helicopter pilot, thus him taking control of a plane is not an entirely unrealistic scenario.
