Prince William and his wife the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, dressed in their finest to visit the National Arboretum in Canberra on Thursday during the penultimate day of their three-week Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand.
Afterwards the royal couple signed the site's guestbook and mixed in with local children and parents to talk conservation projects and, naturally, gardening techniques.
"Reluctantly, Catherine, George and I leave Australia tomorrow. Thank you for the warmth and generosity that has been shown to us during our visit. We go away with wonderful memories, and George goes away with his cuddly wombat which he has taken to chewing so lovingly.
"We greatly look forward to coming back and when we return, it will be to marvel again at all that Australia is and yet to become. Thank you."
