    Last week was a busy one for the royal family, as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Pakistan for a five-day tour – during which Kate Middleton gave her first televised interview since becoming a royal.

    The Cambridges weren’t the only royals to make TV appearances last week, though. Meghan Markle admitted that she’s ‘not ok‘ in a documentary following their royal tour of Africa, which also saw Prince Harry address rumours of a feud between he and William. It was later announced that the Sussexes are taking a break from public life next month.

    Following the ITV documentary, a source told the BBC that Prince William ‘is worried’ about his brother and his wife Meghan.

    But back to the Duchess of Cambridge, and it was something of a week of firsts for the mum-of-three. She also casually penned and posted her first Instagram post to the world – did you spot it?

    Taking to the @kensingtonroyal account, which now has over 10 million followers, Kate posted a heartfelt message following the couple’s visit to an SOS village in Lahore, also the subject of her recent televised interview.

    ‘The community at the SOS village is built around family – and the best possible family you could imagine – where everyone comes together to nurture, love and protect the children in their care,’ she wrote.

    ‘These vulnerable children, many of who have come through traumatic circumstances, are nurtured in this caring environment and are able to form these quality relationships that they so desperately need to thrive. – Catherine’

    It’s clearly a cause the duchess is very passionate about, as she personally signed off the message, much to the delight of royal fans everywhere.

    We hope this is the first post of many we see from the duchess herself!
