Prince William and Duchess Catherine
Britain's Prince William and Duchess Catherine made a stopover in Australia on their way back to Britain.
The royal couple - who have been on a tour of South East Asia and the South Pacific - flew from Tuvalu to Brisbane before boarding their long-haul flight yesterday (19.09.12), with one onlooker saying the 30-year-old duchess looked elegant despite the arduous journey ahead.
Shelley Jelonek told Us Weekly: 'She looked amazing, she is so graceful. It's really impressive that they came up through the normal terminal. I have even more respect for them now.'
Fellow passenger Deena Bryant added: 'It's really nice for people in Australia that she is here, even if it's only briefly. She always looks so comfortable and elegant.'
While William wore a suit, Catherine - who carried some of her own luggage - made an outfit change from a floral-print dress by Erdem to jeans and a jumper before boarding a commercial flight back to London.
A spokesperson for Brisbane Airport added: 'She looked fresh and beautiful and they were both very gracious.'
