Duchess of Cambridge tries out fighter jet

Video Preview

The Duchess of Cambridge turned down a chivalrous offer from her husband as the Royal couple continue their tour of Australia.

William was left watching as Kate - despite wearing heels - deftly climbed into the cockpit of a Super Hornet during a visit to the Royal Australian Air Force base Amberley, near Brisbane.

The Duke had asked: "Do you fancy jumping in the back?"

But the Duchess, dressed in a white LK Bennett dress with blue poppies on, wanted to have a go at the controls of the multimillion-pound plane herself from the pilot's seat, Sky News reports.

Chief of Air Force Air Marshall Geoff Brown and Commanding Officer of Number 1 Squadron, Stephen Chappell talked the young royals through the jet’s operation.

Air Marshall Brown revealed the pair were preferring Australia’s weather to the conditions turned on by New Zealand - where it was cold and rained for most of the 10-day visit, Brisbane Times reports.
