On Oct. 14, Prince William and Kate Middleton began their history-making tour of Pakistan. This not only marks the first time that high-ranking members of the British royal family have visited the area since 2006, which was when Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall made their own visit, but additionally it is the Duke and Duchess' first trip to the country. However, this is not the only aspect of this current tour that is different from previous ones.

According to Hello, the couple brought a royal doctor with them for the first time. Usually, this is something that is reserved for Queen Elizabeth II or Prince Charles during times of travel, but on this particular trip the Duke and Duchess opted for the additional help.

The doctor, who reportedly is a friend from William's time working with the East Anglian Air Ambluance, is not the only help the royals will receive on this trip. Additionally, William and Kate's private secretaries, communications secretary, program coordinators, and several others are also in attendance for the five-day tour.

Aside from the introduction of this "notable first," this particular trip has also earned attention for other reasons. Previously, it was called the "most high-risk Royal tour in years" and required staff to travel ahead of the royals in order to "assess potential risk."
