ADELAIDE: Britain’s Prince William visited the South Australian town named after his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, where he and wife Kate met disadvantaged youngsters and tried their hands at DJ-ing.
Named after the British monarch in 1955, Elizabeth is a northern satellite suburb of Adelaide which in recent years has been plagued by unemployment.
In a youth-oriented day on their three-week tour Down Under, the British couple visited a community music programme and a skateboard park, where they had a go at spinning some tracks on the DJ decks and watched some breakdancing.
“She was fantastic,” Shane Petersen, a workshop facilitator in the hip hop class the couple visited, said of Kate’s ability to scratch a beat yesterday.
“But he can fly a helicopter so it’s horses for courses.”
William also spoke of his taste in music, saying: “I like house music, I still like a bit of rock’n’roll and the classics and a bit of R’n’B.”
The 31-year-old prince added a blue sky to an aerosol artwork then watched a BMX and scooter display, at which he and the duchess were given a skateboard featuring boxing kangaroos for their baby son George, who is with them on tour. — AFP
