Prince William, Catherine take a spin on turntables

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tried their hand at DJing and spray painting during a youth-focused visit to Adelaide on Wednesday.

After a night camping in luxury in the Northern Territory outback, Prince William and his wife Catherine arrived in the South Australian capital mid-morning and headed straight to Northern Sound System, a youth community music centre.

The royals watched a demonstration of DJing before being invited up to have a go themselves.

Catherine appeared more comfortable than Prince William on the decks, as community centre members and staff struggled to hold back their laughter.

The couple also watched rap, hip hop and Aboriginal dance performances, and chatted to young artists.

Outside the centre, Prince William was invited to add some spray paint to an aerosol art wall bearing the name of the suburb, Playford, and the royals watched a bike demonstration in the adjoining skate park.

William and Kate will meet crowds in Adelaide and attend a reception hosted by the South Australian premier before returning to Canberra, where baby Prince George is staying, on Wednesday afternoon.
