Kate Middleton Looks Chic Battling The Heat In Australian Outback (PHOTOS)

Even in sweltering temperatures, Kate Middleton manages to look chic as always.

The Duchess of Cambridge showed the world how to dress for Australia's Outback when she and Prince William visited the country's most famous natural landmark Uluru, formerly known as Ayers rock, on Tuesday.

To beat the heat, Duchess Kate opted for a loose-fitting dove-grey Roksanda Ilincic dress with cap sleeves and a pale grey belt that cinched in her waist.

The couple visited the National Indigenous Training Academy where they handed out certificates to students before moving on to the Uluru Cultural Center, which prompted Catherine to change into a fashion repeat: a grey-and-white print Hobbs dress that she sported in 2012.

Kate was also given a traditional beaded necklace, which she sported with royal flair while William was given a hand-carved shield. (To be honest, we would have preferred a shield if we were Kate.)

Following the event there was afternoon tea and then the Duke and Duchess headed to the sandstone rock where they will spend the night glamping in a luxurious tent sans baby George.
