Prince William and Duchess Kate took a step back in time, at least for a photo opportunity, by posing today in front of Australia’s famed Ayers Rock, the same location where William’s parents, Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, posed around 30 years ago on their own trip Down Under.
Prince William, 31, was just 9-months-old when he traveled with his parents to Australia and New Zealand and now he is traveling to those countries with his wife, Kate, 32, and their son, 9-month-old Prince George.
After a photogenic zoo outing over the weekend, George stayed behind with his nanny in Canberra while William and Kate traveled to the sacred Aboriginal site of Uluru.
Kate, dressed in a taupe cap-sleeved dress by London-based designer Roksanda Ilincic, described the view as “absolutely stunning,” according to reports. William was dressed in khaki pants and a khaki shirt similar to the khaki outfit worn by Prince Charles three decades ago.
The couple was presented with an Aboriginal spear at Ayers Rock, a traditional gift, and later taken to tea with the Aboriginal elders after watching a traditional Aboriginal dance.
William and Kate will continue their side-trip alone, without George, by reportedly taking in a sunset walking tour and spending the night at the luxury resort Longitude 131, known for its eco-friendly, tent-like suites.
