Swaying to the South Pacific beat: Duke and Duchess of Cambridge don grass skirts to join in tribal dance on final leg of royal tour

By REBECCA ENGLISH, ROYAL CORRESPONDENT IN THE SOLOMON ISLANDS

Shake their hips: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge donned grass skirts and took part in a traditional welcome dance today on the last leg of their South Pacific tour

Oh William! He certainly gave it his best shot. But perhaps blessed with his father Charles’s sense of rhythm, the Prince was never going to shine at shimmying on the dance floor.
It was Kate, in grass skirt and flower crown, who was the natural hula dancer yesterday as the royal couple joined in a traditional Polynesian welcome.
William and Kate had finally arrived on the tiny island of Tuvalu, one of the smallest and most remote countries on earth and the last stop on their tour.

Star of the show: Princess Kate joined local women in costume during the dance

They took part in a fun-filled evening of dancing and celebration before jetting off back to England again today.
At an unusually informal ‘state dinner’ hosted by the island chiefs yesterday the couple threw themselves into the celebrations. According to Kate, William has been secretly practising his dance moves at Kensington Palace in anticipation of being asked to join the islanders.

But it was the Duchess herself who started the royal knees up, putting on her grass skirt and swaying in time to the music, eventually cajoling William into joining her.
The prince had unbuttoned his white shirt but left his suit jacket on, while barefoot Kate looked fun and fresh in a long, flowing dress by Alice Temperley.

In line with another local tradition, the two were asked to spray perfume on dancers they liked.
The nine coral atolls that make up the tiny nation of Tuvalu, where the Queen is still monarch, boast a population of just 10,000 – but yesterday it seemed that almost all had come out to welcome their future king and queen. The couple arrived by plane and were carried through the streets on a ‘carriage’ – with a thatched roof made of leaves – that had been hoisted on the shoulders of 25 strapping young islanders.

William greeted their hosts by saying ‘talofa’ or hello and described Tuvalu as the highlight of their nine-day Diamond Jubilee tour, which came to an end today.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have now said goodbye to Tuvalu - and their Diamond Jubilee tour.
