Duchess Kate Wows At Solomon Islands Welcome Ceremony

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge received an impressive traditional welcome ceremony as they touched down in the Solomon Islands for the third stop on their nine-day tour.

As the couple stepped off the plane in the capital, Honiara, a group of warriors carrying spears and instruments performed a dance, and the royal pair were garlanded with frangipani, as they made their way onto a war canoe built on top of a van.

Around 70,000 people turned out to see the couple parade the streets on the canoe, known as a Tomoko - which took two weeks for locals to create for their VIPs.

Kate was pretty in a geometric-print £820 Jonathan Saunders dress, paired with her trusty nude LK Bennett heels, and topped off with a hat by Jane Taylor pinned to her hair.

The couple looked relaxed and happy as they waved their way through the crowds before attending a service at the St Barnabas Cathedral.
