Topless, so what? Kate gets the giggles as she is greeted by bare-chested tribal women in Solomon Islands on Royal tour

By REBECCA ENGLISH, ROYAL CORRESPONDENT in the SOLOMON ISLANDS

How funny: Kate stifles a giggle as she and William are garlanded by a gaggle of bare-chested women after they arrive on Marau in the Solomon Islands

If she had been hoping to put thoughts of the topless furore behind her, Kate didn’t have a chance yesterday.
As she arrived at the tiny village of Marau on the Solomon Islands, she was greeted with a line-up of bare-breasted dancers.
And she burst into giggles as the smiling women in grass skirts presented her and William with shell necklaces.

Royal entrance: Kate steps off the plane for the next leg of her and William's South Pacific tour

William did his best to discreetly avert his eyes but failed spectacularly as he bent his head to receive the necklace.
The pair watched as 30 bare-chested women danced in front of them before garlanding them with necklaces made of shell ‘money’ and the teeth of dolphins found washed up on the shore.
After all the anxiety of the last few days, there will be no chance that Kate’s tempted to try sunbathing au naturel again soon. Not that the locals would bat an eyelid.

Welcome - Marau style: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are traditionally welcomed to Marau

‘They don’t like you to show your legs – people use a sarong – but they don’t mind if you show your “sou-sous”,’ said Pamela Kimberley, co-owner of the island of Tavanipupu, where William and Kate were enjoying a precious few hours of privacy last night, which included dinner served by an Irish chef.
Visitors are welcome to wear ‘anything or nothing’, she said. ‘We don’t care what they do. There is only one rule: no rules.’

On our way: Prince William chats with an islander as he makes his way through a path of brightly coloured flowers at the Marau landing strip

The couple made their way to Tavanipupu by dugout canoe after a busy day meeting spear-carrying painted tribesmen and women’s groups.
They were spending last night in a thatched leaf bungalow, one of only eight on the palm-fringed island.
Their private sanctuary has a bed carved out of bamboo and an outdoor shower. It also has its own jetty, where, after walking barefoot to their room with tropical fruit cocktails in their hands, the royal couple were expected to dine alone out under the stars, beneath a muslin canopy illuminated by lanterns.

Pit stop: The Royal couple stop midway along a walk way to watch a group of bare chested women perform a water dance

On chef Paul Carr’s menu was a wide choice of exquisite international and Solomon Islands cuisine, including the island’s own coconut-fed chickens, and freshly-caught ikamata – yellow fin tuna in lime juice – and chilli mud crab.
‘The menu that we have tonight, we’ve practised for two weeks,’ the chef said. The couple’s bungalow sits beside the palm-fringed shore of the 37-acre tropical island in the beautiful Marau Sound lagoon beside the Coral Sea in the Solomon Islands.

Canoe to paradise: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge then enjoyed the scenic route to Tavanipupu Island in a traditional war canoe

‘It’s the perfect place for honeymooners... and they’re still in their honeymoon phase,’ Mrs Kimberley said. ‘We’ve had all sorts of requests from VIPs,’ she added.
‘People who have wanted to bring private chefs, fly in furniture and so on, but the duke and duchess are so down to earth. They haven’t asked for one thing.’
Today the couple depart for Tuvalu, one of the most remote islands on earth, on the last leg of their tour.

Outfit change: Kate swapped her yellow Jaeger day dress for a navy blue Mulberry frock for evening while the Duke chose an eye-popping pink shirt...but what's that behind them?

The couple's bungalow sits beside the palm-fringed shore of the 37-acre tropical island in the beautiful Marau Sound lagoon beside the Coral Sea in the Solomon Islands.
'It's not a huge house. It's not Buckingham Palace by a long stretch,' said Mrs Kimberly, co-owner of the island, who has spent $6 million buying and upgrading the resort in the past four years.

Some-fin fishy going on: The Cambridge's canoe was followed by locals dressed as 'sharks'. Solomon Islanders have traditionally worshipped the shark and when warriors went out on raiding parties to rival islanders, some of the tribesmen would usually swim alongside in shark costumes

The barefoot Royals: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived barefoot in Tavanipupu, Solomon Islands, during the latest leg of their South Pacific tour

Rough Ground: The Duchess of Cambridge chats with John Sullivan as she walks barefoot over some quite rough ground onTavanipupu Island

Welcome dance: The couple were greeted by dancers on Tavanipupu

Best seat: The young Royals sit and watch locals perform during a visit to Tavanipupu Island

Address: A local addresses the young Royals after they arrived on Tavanipupu. Tonight the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will dine in private on the paradise island

The elders then asked William to unveil a new coconut tree, which the villagers will plant to commemorate the royal visit.
Then the couple, accompanied by six warriors and the local police chief, climbed into an ornately-decorated dugout war canoe and were rowed across the 100-yard channel dividing Marapa from Tavanipupu. Just as they climbed into the boats, the heavens opened in a brief tropical downpour.
William sat beside Kate, holding an umbrella over her for part of the journey, while a warrior at the front armed with a bow and arrow sang songs and the three accompanying 'sharks' patrolled the waters menacingly.
When they reached Tavanipupu, the couple were decorated with garlands, as pan pipers played and children danced.

Luxury: The couple will stay in a secluded £780-a-night thatched leaf bungalow with its own private jetty from where they can go sunbathing, snorkelling and canoe paddling

The laid back pair had arrived to the island barefoot before walking over quite rough ground.
They were then given fruit juice cocktails and shown to their room by Mrs Kimberly - 'Just how to switch on the lights and aircon, that kind of thing,' she said.
'They have a butler at their call, but he will be on the other side of the gates, so they are totally alone once they are in there,' said Mrs Kimberly

A quick wave and they're off: The Duke and Duchess head off by boat to Tavanipupu

Out in force: The Royal visit caused great excitement among the islanders, some had trekked up to six hours just to see Kate and Wills

Among those who were there to see them were, remarkably, a British couple who were stopping off on a round the world tour.
Bill and Sue Redgrove, from Maidstone, Kent, set off from Britain in their 40ft yacht Camomile four years ago, with a plan to spend ten years sailing round the world.
The couple, both aged 54, had no idea the Royal couple were on their way to Marau until locals told them about it a few days before.

Family: Kate revealed how family life was very important to her especially now she was married during a half hour chat with about 40 women from the Young Women's Parliamentary Group

For me? Kate had moved round the group, spending several minutes with each woman, telling them their cause was 'important'

Newly-crowned: The Duchess, wearing a £180 bright yellow dress from Jaeger, proudly sports the decorative headpiece given to her by well-wishers

Heading into the rain: After calling on the Solomon Islands' Prime Minister, the Duke and Duchess visited a cultural village in Honiara
