Continuing their tour of Australia and New Zealand, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated the festive weekend by heading to Sydney's Royal Easter show at the Olympic Park.

After being greeted by elated crowds carrying banners baring their names, Kate and Wills took a guided tour around the fair to see produce from different areas of the country. Adventurous as ever, the couple partook in everything from sheep sheering to washing chickens.

Proving her good sense of humour, Duchess Kate even made a jibe at her hubby's thinning hairline. When one producer showed her a tuft of brown alpaca wool, she kidded that William could use it as a toupee.

"The princess said (the Duke) should put some on his head," said Lyn Cregan, 67, from Glen Innes who was displaying her fruit and veg.

While Prince George was absent on the day, staying in the city at the family's temporary base Admiralty House with his nanny, he did get a mention from his mum. While browsing the vegetables, the Duchess remarked to the growers that her little one loves a serving of sweet potato.

Despite being a day for the couple to get stuck in and get their hands dirty, Kate was on elegant form in white. Her latest tour dress was another number by an Australian native, this time, Zimmermann.

She paired the cut-out detail broderie anglaise fit-and-flare dress with Stuart Weitzman raffia wedges and a matching mini clutch by L.K. Bennett and wore her hair in her signature bouncy curls.

The designer's website was sent into frenzy after the appearance, with 'Copy Kates' crashing it in an attempt to get their hands on the 'Roamer' day dress, which checks in at an affordable £274.

Another tour style triumph for Kate. We can't wait to see what's up next.
