Hook hearts and eliminate. Seems unlikely east will make a takeout double of clubs with a small singleton/void diamond

As 1 showed diamonds I thinks it's very likely east is short in diamonds for their takeout.

The bidding suggest RHO is short in and long in Majors.
Pitch 10 and win opening lead cheaply in hand.
Hook8.
Draw trumps if 2-1 or 1-2.
If 3-0, repeat finesse to 10 say, and finesse/clear .
(If lose to K we need the finesse.)

Now A then x leaves manageable x-ruff position, even if trump K is with LHO.
Yes, when K is still out (trumps 3-0) we need to be not longer than 3 with RHO.

Oh dear. Does no-one read the bidding notes? 1s was a transfer to 1nt. It didn't show diamonds and there's absolutely no reason to think rho is short in them.

Yes, I read: No Major GF Diamonds.
Could read: No Major or GF Diamonds.
Which is it?

We don't have much to go on here. The double as "takeout" could mean anything, but given that there isn't much left for RHO to have, I'll give him the 3 kings and take the heart hook followed by an elimination.
