The Duchess of Cambridge managed her best Baywatch impression in Sydney as she ended up racing to the start line of a life saver competition.
Kate jogged along the sandy shore in a pair of nude-coloured wedge heels after she realised she was due to kick-off the race for the young life savers, known as 'nippers'.
Despite her four-inch heeled shoes the Duchess managed to move across the sand, covering around 15 metres to reach the youngsters.
The Duke and Duchess were at the beach to watch children aged 15 and under taking part in the New South Wales Surf Life Saving nippers' club.
The children learn about surf safety and life-saving in between playing beach games and having races in the sea.
Around 12,000 people had packed the beach and the promenade above to see the Duke and Duchess, giving them a huge reception when they arrived.
Meanwhile the Duchess of Cambridge has suggested the perfect solution for her husband's growing bald patch - an alpaca toupee.
Prince Harry is usually the one ribbing his older brother about hair loss whenever he gets the opportunity.
But Kate could not help teasing William about his disappearing follicles when the royal couple visited the prestigious Sydney Royal Easter Show.
As they toured elaborate displays of produce grouped by Australian regions, one exhibitor, Lyn Crejan, 67, talked about the wealth of fruit and vegetables in a colourful design behind her.
When she showed them a tuft of alpaca wool - which was a similar shade of brown to the Duke's hair - the Duchess, who wore a white Zimmermann dress, joked about her husband using it as a wig.
Ms Crejan, a farmer from the settlement of Glenn Innes in New South Wales, said: "The Prince was interested in the alpaca and as I showed it to them the Princess said he should put it on his head.
"She said, 'you need it more than me', and pointed to his head and he laughed."
