William and Imran Khan reminisce over friendship with Diana

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met Imran Khan on the second day of their five-day royal tour of Pakistan.

The Duke of Cambridge and Pakistan’s prime minister reminisced about when the ex-test cricketer spoke of his political ambitions more than 20 years ago.

The duke told how everyone laughed at a gathering in Richmond-upon-Thames, south-west London, in 1996 when Mr Khan announced his ambition of becoming his nation's prime minister to William and his mother Diana, Princess of Wales.

The former international cricketer was a friend of Diana, who had taken the young duke to visit him and his then-wife, Jemima Khan.
