A world away from the photo scandal that has rocked the British royal family, William and Kate came face to face with a group of bare-breasted women.
The islanders wore body paint, grass skirts and garlands as they greeted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their second day in the Solomon Islands.
The outing came as palace lawyers made a formal criminal complaint to French prosecutors over snaps of Kate sunbathing topless in southern France.
