Two men stopped by police after behaving 'suspiciously' metres away from William and Kate on royal tour

New South Wales: The incident came as the Royal couple were greeted by cheering crowds in the beautiful region of New South Wales this morning.

Two men were stopped by police after behaving 'suspiciously' close to a car carrying William and Kate during their visit to the Blue Mountains.

They were allegedly harassing crowds waiting to see the couple.

Witnesses described one of the men as wearing a bullet-proof vest, but it later turned out to be a mesh top that was covered in pro-Israel stickers.

The two men were apparently spotted talking on headsets in a village called Winmalee which was devastated by bush fires six months ago in the Blue Mountains.

They are believed to have been told to strip for a search after getting within 10 metres of the Kate and William's car.

New South Wales police said they were aged 37 and 21.

The men were held when the  Royal couple were greeted by more cheering crowds this morning during their visit to the beautiful region of New South Wales  - on the second day of their tour of Australia.

The Duke and Duchess met with fire crew and local residents affected by the terrible wild fires which ripped through the area just six months ago.

The Duchess was chic itself in a blue and white patterned Diane Von Furstenberg dress.

New South Wales police said they were aged 37 and 21.

NSW Police spokesman said: "At about 12.10pm police stopped and spoke to two men aged 37 and 21 who were allegedly harrassing members of the crowd gathered at the corner of Single Ridge Road and Buena Vista Road, Winmalee.

"They were moved on from the area prior to the motorcade coming past. Neither of them was arrested. They were searched and they were told to get out of there."

Video footage shows the men being searched by police as the car carrying the Royal Couple was driven away.
