Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge, Is Gorgeous In Grey Roksanda Ilincic Dress Visiting Ayers Rock With Prince William

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, arrived in Australia's red centre on Tuesday to pay a visit to the iconic Ayers Rock.

Kate was stunning in a simple grey dress by London designer Roksanda Ilincic. The cap-sleeved frock - the second Ilincic number worn by the Duchess during the Royal Tour of New Zealand and Australia - was a perfect choice as she and William endured soaring temperatures as they received a traditional Aboriginal welcome from the National Indigenous Training Academy.

With her trademark locks flowing loose about her shoulders and accessorising with a simply cream silk clutch and her favourite nude courts the Duchess got it spot on... Again!

Wills also kept things stripped back and casual, dressed in chinos and matching shirt, as he was presented with a massive hunting spear to mark his visit to the academy.

Kate, on the other hand, was gifted a had-painted bracelet made of seed, which she was said to be "thrilled to receive" and was quick to put on her writs.

As usual, royal fans were out in force to welcome the couple as they touched down not far from Ayers Rock.

Amanda Bartels and her ten-month-old son Nathan made the five hour journey from Alice Springs to see the couple.

According to the Daily Mail they spoke to the Duchess who sympathised with the problems of keeping a baby occupied during the journey.

"She related to the trials of travelling," Amanda said. "She let Nathan play with her bracelet... And my daughter Aimee-Grace gave her some native flowers."

There was no sign of eight-month-old Prince George this time, however. We guess he was all tuckered out from his trip to Taronga Zoo in Sydney at the weekend.
