~ Royals, Kate and William unfazed by topless islanders
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have come face to face with a group of topless South Pacific women and did not bat an eyelid when introduced.
Wearing just a few banana leaves as a makeshift top the group performed a dance with men from their region as they showcased their culture for the royals.
Their exposed breasts are a normal part of life in the Solomon Islands’ province of Choiseul, where the women are from, and they happily chatted to William and Kate who seemed completely at ease in their company.
One man among their group had a greeting written in pidgin English painted on his chest for the royals – Welkam Wills and Kate.
