18 JULY 2003
Princess Lalla Salma of Morocco stepped into the limelight alongside her husband King Mohammed VI on Wednesday, greeting the president of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf, as he continued a North African tour with a stop in Rabat.
While many remember Princess Lalla Salma in the traditional Moroccan dress she donned for her March 2002 wedding and the celebrations for her first son's birth earlier this year, she opted for a decidedly different look for the official visit.
With her auburn locks falling around her shoulders, the 25-year-old royal was picture perfect in a pink top and long jacket in pastel tones, accessorised with a beige clutch bag and pearl earrings.
And, now married for more than a year to the monarch, the princess seemed extremely relaxed in her role. Donning a pair of trendy sunglasses, she strolled behind her spouse and the president in the grounds of the royal palace chatting with the Pakistani first lady.
