It looks like they had a wonderful time in the Solomon Islands. I love how relaxed and happy they look.

Invisibility indeed!
Glad you enjoyed it!

Next the couple have separate engagements. William will briefly attend a conference given for youth leaders from the Commonwealth leaders in the Pacific where he will be invited to give some short remarks. The Duke will subsequently award six Duke of Edinburgh gold awards to Solomon Islanders and one awardee from Vanuatu. Meanwhile, Kate will attend a reception for Solomon Island women's groups.

Ghost, again, absolutely lovely pictures! I love how Catherine looks in yellow, and the fact that she charms everyone she meets. I think the couple is definitely enjoying the tour, even with the unpleasantness that was brought at the end of last week.

This is probably my favorite thing ever. Haha.

Ghost, thank you so much for all of this tireless reporting on this tour. You've done a fantastic job!

georgina brewer ‏@Georginaitv #William played some football and #Kate was given a garland. They'll spend tonight on a neighbouring paradise island http://pic.twitter.com/K8FVD1JC


Alright so I assume they have now finished lunch and are now flying to Marau, where they will receive a warm welcome by locals. Following the welcome ceremony, they will travel by boat to the island of Marapa, where they will first visit a village before travelling on a traditional war canoe to Tavanipupu where they will spend the night at an exceptionally beautiful resort. For the record the flight is only around 30 mins

I LOVE the cake they gave them

Ok so here's what I'm hearing. I'm hearing they are already on their way to Tavanipupu. I can't say if it's 100% but I'm waiting on word.

ETA: I got confirmation
georgina brewer ‏@Georginaitv No problem. Yes they are on Tuvanipupu now

Also:
Paul Harrison ‏@SkyNewsRoyal #royaltour #William & #Kate held informal drinks with journalists in Honiara this pm. W&K couldn't have been more relaxed with press

kk in that case, they're appearances for the day are pretty much over so I'm going to bed. See you all tomorrow
