Today the Cambridges have hit one of Australia's most iconic regions- the red centre, Uluru. The couple stepped off the plane in outback-ready khakis, as K Mids wore a dusty Roksanda Ilincic fitted dress. After presenting certificates to tourism and hospitality graduates from the National Indigenous Training Academy at Yulara, Kate had a quick outfit change for a base walk and photocall around Uluru, formerly known as Ayers Rock, at sunset.
As predicted, the literal dressers wore bush colours for their stroll around Uluru. Kate had a quick outfit change out of her mushroom Roksanda, swapping into her old favourite white and taupe checked Hobbs dress.

The ladylike fit-and-flare 'Wessex' dress comes with a white waist-clinching belt and costs a bargainstastic £35. She first wore this dress in July 2012 to kick a football around at a sports festival at Bacon's College in London. Unsurprisingly, the dress then sold out in every size. Boo.
The couple posed for photographs during a minute and a half photocall, just as the Prince and Princess of Wales had done 31 years ago on the same visit to Urulu. Princess Diana and Charles also wore head to toe khaki. It's not the easiest spot for a photocall with temperatures up to 33 degrees - Kate admitted to several locals that she struggled with the pesky flies in the Outback.

When a school girl asked how they managed to pose for the cameras and not swat the flies away, Kate laughed 'I know. It was difficult,' and William added: 'They were all coming for us.'
On the visit to the area the Duke and Duchess stopped at a cave to look at some local cave art, were told ancestral stories, took part in an Aborigine Welcome to Country ceremony at Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, met elders from the Anangu people of Uluru and gathered around a camp fire to watch the Imnma ritual.

The couple had a moment of privacy at Uluru, as they walked to the Mutitjulu water hole without aides, security or photographers. Tour guide John Sweeney, who accompanied Aboriginal guide Sammy Wilson, said to the Daily Mail: 'We let them have a bit of time to themselves, which pretty rare on a trip like this.'
It has been reported they will go glamping this evening, spending the night at the luxury camping resort Longitude 101.
