All that's missing is the red swimsuit as Kate Middleton has Baywatch moment on Aussie beach

Kate Middleton had her very own 'Baywatch moment' on a Sydney beach during the royal tour of Australia.
While the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge take in the sights Down Under with their eight-month-old son Prince George, the couple hit the beach...in a strictly official capacity.
The young royals were the guests of honour at a lifesaving event on Sydney's Manly Beach and Kate showed she was able to keep up with the team as she sprinted on the sand in her heels.
Still wearing her white Zimmermann dress from earlier in the day and a pair of trusty nude espadrilles, she didn't let a thing like a swimsuit get in the way of her enjoying the beach atmosphere.
She and husband Prince William proudly posed alongside surfboards at the demonstration Down Under.
They had a full day on their itinerary, having taken in the prestigious Sydney Royal Easter Show earlier in the day.
Billed as an event that "brings the country to the city" the 14-day Sydney Royal Easter Show attracts more than 900,000 visitors every year, and has been a fixture in the calendar of farmers, animal lovers, gardeners and the general public since it was first held in 1823.
Royalty has been associated with the show since Queen Victoria gave permission in 1890 for the event to use the royal prefix.
The Prince of Wales visited in 1981 and 10 years earlier the Duke of Edinburgh toured the stands.
