Image caption The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's royal tour of Australia and New Zealand has drawn to a close. They waved farewell from Fairbairn Airbase in Canberra together with Prince George, saying they were "bowled over" by the support they received.
Image caption On the final day of the visit to Australia, Anzac Day, the duke and duchess paid their respects at the cenotaph of the Australian War Memorial.
Image caption Over the course of their visit, the couple were regularly greeted by large crowds of well-wishers. Here, Catherine is given gifts - including a cuddly toy - outside the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra.
Image caption The duchess tried her hand at DJ-ing during a visit to Adelaide. An onlooker described the duchess as "fantastic" on the decks.
Image caption On a visit to a skate park in Elizabeth, the couple were given a skateboard for Prince George, with his name written on the base.
Image caption Echo-ing a visit by the duke's parents, the couple are pictured at the landmark Uluru rock formation in the Northern Territory, also known as Ayers Rock.
Image caption Prince George only featured in part of the tour, spending some time with his nanny while his parents were on official engagements. One of his appearances was at Taronga Zoo in Sydney, where he was presented with a toy bilby.
Image caption Earlier in the visit, thousands of people turned out to greet the duke and duchess as they arrived in Brisbane.
Image caption At the Royal Australian Airforce base at Amberley they tried an RAAF Super Hornet for size - with Catherine sitting in the driver's seat whilst her husband sat in the back.
