Britain's Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, board a decorated truck at Honiara International Airport Sept. 16. The royal couple is on their third stop of a nine-day tour of Southeast Asia and the South Pacific on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II to commemorate her Diamond Jubilee.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's latest trip comes on the heels of Italian magazine Chi's announcement that it will publish 26 pages of photos of the couple on vacation in France, where Middleton's topless shots were snapped.

In a statement to E! News, Mondadori, the publishing group that owns the mag and Closer (the first magazine to publish the photos), said the editors of Closer and Chi told them that they planned to publish the photos and they stand by their decision to do so.
