Kate Middleton and Prince William get traditional Aboriginal welcome Down Under

Kate Middleton and Prince William are clearly getting into the swing of their royal Australian tour.

The royal couple landed in Uluru, where they received a traditional Aboriginal welcome among from the local Anangu community.

They landed in Ayres airport this morning with their son Prince George, however they protected the eight-month-old from the glare of the cameras as he will only be included for select public events.

Their visit marks one of the most exciting things to happen to the remote village, where they were greeted by, Sally Thomas, her husband Duncan McNeill, Northern Territory Chief Minister Adam Giles and his wife Tamara and immediately escorted on a visit to the National Indigenous Training Academy.


When it comes to Kate's style, as they say - if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
