It’s thought the pilot attempted to land the RAF Voyager at two different airports before the plane was forced to return to Lahore.

The royals were said to have been in the air for two hours, when the journey was meant to take around 25 minutes.

Despite the scary situation, William joked with media at the back of the plane once they had landed.
