Kate and William both took a walkabout, meeting the delighted public who had been waiting for hours!
For today's visit to South Australia the Duchess returned to one of her go-to designers, Alexander McQueen. Here you see Kate right after landing at Edinburgh RAAF base, located about 15 miles north of Adelaide.
The couple was actually visiting Elizabeth, a suburb of Adelaide; the community was named after William's grandmother. Local residents were very eager to see William and Kate, with some claiming their spot on the sidewalk as early as 3am.
The Duchess received flowers from a lovely young lady.
More about her from the Daily Mail's story on today's activities:
"Wearing a pale pink wool suit by Alexander McQueen and nude stiletto pumps, the Duchess was greeted by Health Minister Jack Snelling and Elizabeth Mayor Glenn Docherty before being presented with a posy of Australian natives by Lauren Stephenson, 6, from the Make A Wish Australia Foundation. The Duchess spoke at length to the young girl who has been in remission for two years from bone cancer, before William also joined her for a chat, rubbing the young girl's shoulder as they said goodbye."
The Duke and Duchess visited Northern Sound System, a music and performance center for the area's youth. While there they practiced their DJ skills, something prompting no end of laughs. After the DJ efforts Prince William tried his hand at graffiti art.
As mentioned above, Kate chose pale pink separates by Alexander McQueen for today's visit. It looks like the pieces are contemporary styles done in a custom color. It appears Kate is wearing the label's Pique Knit Top, we show it at Lyst. Originally priced at $1005, most recently the black version sold for $402 and the white $502, both at Matches Fashion.
Next, the skirt Kate wore. On the far left we show McQueen's Black Box Pleat Skirt in a rayon/acetate blend ($1045 at FarFetch), and on the right, the McQ Pleated A Line cotton skirt ($825, also at Far Fetch). The majority opinion on the skirt is that the Box Pleat more closely resembles what the Duchess was wearing.
Today Kate accessorized with her LK Bennett Sledge heels ($345 / £195). As well as her Natalie clutch, also by LK Bennett.
Jewelry for today is what we have been seeing lately: the Cartier wristwatch, Asprey London charms necklace and Annoushka pearl drop earrings.
Kate shone in the soft pink separates, it was a stellar look for her. More importantly, the visit seemed very successful for William and Kate. They seem to thrive on the walkabouts, Kate remains cool, collected and very much at ease as she dives into the fray. William is much the same.
