ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent day four of their Australian tour in Queensland, visiting a Royal Australian Air Force Base (RAAF) and attending a State Reception in Brisbane. The royals were welcomed at Amberley RAAF Base on Saturday (April 19) by Australian Defence Force Chief, General David Hurley and were shown an F/A-18F Super Hornet aircraft. The duchess wore a white dress with a blue pattern by British fashion house LKBennett and carried a bag by Australian designer Oroton, local media reported. She also joined her husband for a trip in a Super Hornet simulator, according to their instructor Flight Lieutenant (Flt Lt) Jasper McCaldin. The young royals planted a Plunkett Mallee tree, or Eucalyptus Curtisii, in a memorial garden and met the families of service personnel killed in recent conflicts at a lunchtime reception. In the afternoon the royal couple attended a reception at the Brisbane Convention Centre hosted by the Queensland State Premier Campbell Newman. Earlier in the day police moved indigenous Australian demonstrators trying to stage a protest away from the Convention Centre. Witnesses told local media the protesters held banners saying 'give back what you stole,' referring to Australian land and resources. Thousands of people lined the streets hoping to see the royals and many got to meet them when they went on a royal walk-about for more than twenty minutes after the reception. On Sunday (April 20) the Duke and Duchess will attend an Easter service and visit a zoo in Sydney.
