The royal couple are 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 trip comes amid furor over the publication of topless pictures of the duchess and their office announced Sunday that the royal couple are to make a criminal complaint against the photographer and the French magazine.
