KUALA LUMPUR: Prince William and Catherine Middleton arrived Friday at the KLCC park for a cultural walkabout and received a huge welcome from the crowd that had gathered from early morning to greet the royal pair.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge smiled and shook hands with the public through the barricades.
Kate, in a white dress and her hair up in a cool chignon, received flowers from her fans.
They had arrived at 10.30 to tremendous cheers and screams from the huge crowd lined up along the roads.
Both the UK and Malaysia flags fluttered proudly as the royal pair smiled and waved to the crowd as they rode in on a buggy.
Some fans had even prepared banners to show their love for the couple.
A big group, including school children and tourists, had gathered much earlier at the park to see the royal pair.
Will and Kate witnessed several cultural performances, including traditional Malay dance and silat during their cultural walkabout.
They later had lunch hosted by the British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce at KLCC where William joked that he was glad durian was not on the menu.
He said he had some durian at Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's house on Thursday and feared for the safety of the people he met afterwards.
The royal pair then left for the Diamond Jubilee Tea Party at the British High Commissioner's residence.
