Adelaide (Australia) (AFP) - Prince William on Wednesday 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. "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. Catherine, wearing a pale pink Alexander McQueen suit and nude stiletto pumps, also spoke to six-year-old Lauren Stephenson whose cancer has been in remission for two years.
