The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge flew from Canberra on a three and a half hour flight to Uluru, touching down just after 1pm local time.

They were greeted by dignitaries including the Administrator of the Northern Territory, Sally Thomas, her husband Duncan McNeill, Northern Territory Chief Minister Adam Giles and his wife Tamara, and traditional owners Daisy Walkabout and Vincent Nipper who are from one of the most respected Aboriginal families in the local Anangu community.

The Anangu are the traditional owners of the land that includes Uluru. They jointly manage the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park with Australia’s federal parks agency. Aborigines have looked after the land for 10,000 years but only won back the title to it in 1985.
