I know I said I wasn’t going to write about the Royals again, but this is too good to let pass.  On the one hand, William and Kate have gone to court in Paris to stop the pictures showing her sunbathing topless on a balcony which both believed to be private.

On the other hand, Kate broke out in laughter today when she was presented with a necklace by a group of Solomon Island women dressed especially for the occasion.   It suggests, I think, that the problem of the French photos for Kate and William isn’t prudery.  Enjoy.

Greeting: The Duchess shields her face in what appears to be a traditional response to the welcome as a local puts the shell necklace over her head                                  Greeting: The Duchess shields her face in what appears to be a traditional response to the welcome as a local puts the shell necklace over her head

Intricate: The colourful necklaces, worth up to £150 each, took three months to make

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
