Kate And William Find Their Groove On The Decks

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have tried their hand at DJing during a visit to a youth centre in Adelaide as part of their Australian tour.

The Royal couple spun the decks at the Northern Sound System, which helps disadvantaged youth learn how to DJ, perform music and cut records, in Elizabeth, a suburb named after William's grandmother.

They both seemed unsure of their mixing prowess at first, each gesturing the other to have a go.

"It's all yours," said William to his wife, before she replied: "William's got lots more experience than I have."

But they soon found their groove and got the hang of things after a bit of help from local DJ Shane Peterer, who remarked: "She was fantastic but he can fly a helicopter. So, horses for courses."

After finding her swing, the Duchess got an applause from the audience and gave a delighted thumbs up.

When asked about his taste in music, William said: "I like house music, I still like a bit of rock and roll and the classics and a bit of R'n'B but I'm not a big heavy metal fan. I'd like to be but I'm not."

Outside the music centre in the Adelaide suburb of Elizabeth, the couple watched a skateboarding display in a skate park and were presented with a customised skateboard for their baby, George.

During their visit the couple also unveiled a plaque for a new office development named Prince George Plaza.

The Royal couple arrived in Adelaide after spending the night sleeping under the stars in a boutique camping resort at Uluru.
