Prince William and Kate Middleton received traditional Aboriginal jewellery and a spear as they arrived at Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, in the Australian Outback.

Kate batted away flies in the 31C heat as they met Aboriginal people who own the land around Uluru.

They watched the sun set over the red sandstone monolith and planned to spend a night under the stars, camping in the Outback.
