ALICE SPRINGS, Australia, April 22 (UPI) --
The duke and duchess of Cambridge made their way to the outback Tuesday
, where they visited one of Australia's most iconic destinations, Uluru.

The royal couple left their son, Prince George, in Canberra, while they made their way through the desert. They're will "glamp" in luxury camping accommodation on Tuesday night
, before making their way to Adelaide on Wednesday.
