Altho nekkid photos of Kate Middleton are spreading in France, in Italy and beyond, she and hubby Prince William are trying to do everything they can to distance themselves from the topless photos of Kate that are making the rounds by focusing on their world tour in celebration of Queen Elizabeth‘s Diamond Jubilee. We’ve seen photos of Kate sipping tea in Kuala Lampur, and we’ve seen photos of Kate climbing a massive tree in Borneo and today we see that that Wills and Kate made their way to the Soloman Islands … where they were met by a group of women … who were ALL topless. Yep. Really. Check out the photos below.
The irony could not have been lost on her. And as the Duchess of Cambridge received an intricate beaded necklace from a gaggle of bare-chested locals she couldn’t help but let out a giggle. The Young Royals were garlanded with the traditional jewellery during their visit to the tiny village of Marau in the Solomon Islands before taking the scenic route to Tavanipupu aboard a traditional war canoe. It was a world away from the storm that has engulfed the couple because of topless pictures of Kate published by a french magazine Closer last week. The Duke and Duchess’s lawyers are in a Paris court today seeking an injunction to prevent the further spread of the images. But tonight Kate and William can at least put the anguish of recent days to one side to enjoy an evening together on the paradise island. The couple are staying in a secluded £780-a-night (1,200 Australian dollars) thatched leaf bungalow with its own private jetty from where they can go sunbathing, snorkelling and canoe paddling. House No 1, their home for the night, stocked with the finest champagne, has just one large room, bathroom and a spacious outdoor shower area – with enough space for two. Fortunately, given recent events, the bungalow also stands in its own grounds behind a bamboo fence and gate hastily erected to give the royal couple more privacy.
I mean … really? I’m gonna guess that this visit was planned WELL before Kate‘s naked photos scandal hit and the decision was made to keep to the schedule irregardless of scandal. I mean, the fact that Kate had to have a giggle as she was lei’d by a topless woman has to show how funny the whole situation is … especially since she knew she was being photographed. I’m not sure if Wills and Kate are fond of the “When In Rome” mentality but even if they are, I’m gonna guess that Kate will NOT be going topless on this visit to the Soloman Islands … privacy wall or not.
