Kate Greeted by TOPLESS Women; Solomon Islands traditional dress

Kate Middleton got the giggles today when she was greeted by a party of bare-chested women on the tiny village of Marau in the Solomon Islands.

William and Kate were given a traditional ceremonial welcome by men blowing conches and 'topless' native women standing in the water, their boat flanked by three warriors swimming beneath shark costumes.
