Next up on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge busy tour of Oz was a trip to Manly Beach to help promote the Australian Surf Life Saving Club, and they had no trouble proving themselves to be good sports.

The famous stretch of sea and sand is the third stop of the day on Kate and William's Royal Tour. Earlier on they hit Sydney's Royal Easter show and then headed to Bear Cottage Hospice to meet young patients.

The visit to the Northern Beach was by far the couples' most active event of the day, as they greeted lifeguards and sportsmen and helped host activities including flag races, swimming and boarding.

Despite the precarious terrain, the Duchess of Cambridge insisted on keeping her trusty four-inch Stuart Weitzman raffia wedges on throughout the engagement. Rushing across the sands towards a young crowd of nearly 100 members of the New South Wales Surf Life Saving Nippers' club, she proved she's a pro at running in heels.

Her strappy shoes were paired with the same broderie anglaise white Zimmermann dress she'd worn throughout the day, which looked perfectly on point for the sunny event.

At the end of the visit, the couple were gifted a surf board for Prince George, printed with the phrase 'Greetings from Manly'. We're sure it'll take pride of place in the eight-month-old's nursery back in Blighty.
