The royal couple met exhibitor Lyn Crejan, 67, at the prestigious Sydney Royal Easter Show, who showed Kate and William a tuft of alpaca wool - which was a similar shade of brown to the Duke's hair.

The Duchess, who wore a white Zimmermann dress, joked about her husband using it as a wig.

Ms Crejan, a farmer from the settlement of Glenn Innes in New South Wales, said: "The Prince was interested in the alpaca and as I showed it to them the Princess said he should put it on his head.

"She said, 'you need it more than me', and pointed to his head and he laughed."
