  • Description

    The Duke of Edinburgh on Feb 5 and the third day of his Pakistani tour was filmed by Visnews laying a wreath on Jinnah's tomb Karachi before visiting the local grammar school.

    At the entrance to the tomb the Prince stopped while canvas slippers were fitted over his shoes. In the marble tomb he was handed a wreath of white chrysanthemums to place on the tomb of Jinnah.

    At the Karachi Grammar School the Prince watched the children playing in the school yard before meeting some of the pupils. Highlight of the afternoon was the ceremony at which the Prince planted a "banyan" tree.

    The Duke will be in Pakistan for a fortnight.
