As the scandal over Kate Middleton's topless photographs was fueled over the weekend, on Monday the Duchess of Cambridge was ironically welcomed by a tribe of bare-chested women in the South Pacific Islands.

Prince William and Middleton traveled to the village of Marau in the Solomon Islands today aboard a traditional war canoe. According to the Daily Mail, Middleton couldn't help but giggle when a local topless woman hanged a necklace on her neck.

Middleton's topless photographs were published on Friday by french magazine Closer. The royal couple are preparing to make a criminal complaint against the photographer, according to Reuters.

On Monday they also visited Marapa Island where they saw a village chief in a traditional attire deliver a speech and bare-chested women perform. Again they took a ride in a traditional war canoe and upon their arrival on Tavanipupu, Solomon Islands they were led by dancing villagers in traditional attire.

Prince William and Middleton are at the third stop of a nine-day tour of Southeast Asia and the South Pacific on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II to commemorate her Diamod Jubilee.

Middleton and William seemed very happy despite the international scandal and outrage from the Royal Family over the publication of the topless photos.

"Their Royal Highnesses have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner," a statement by St. James' Palace read.

"The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to The Duke and Duchess for being so."
