Kate Middleton has not had the easiest week ever.The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge triumphed in a lawsuit on Tuesday that allowed them to halt Closer magazine’s publication of those Kate topless pics. But their royal tour of Asia and the Pacific was a time full of rainforest exploring, ceremonial dancing and canoe rides dogged by stress, as more and more tabloids published the topless photos and a legal battle raged on back in the UK.
Will and Kate’s nine-day trip came to an end on Wednesday, as the couple wrapped up their trek through Singapore, Malaysia, Borneo and the Solomon Islands and flew from Tuvalu, where the famous grass skirt dancing happened, to Brisbane, Australia, in order to catch a flight back to England. (Catherine changed outfits in between, switching out her lovely floral frock for a more plane-ready pair of jeans, a scarf and a comfy sweater.)
While alighting from the royal’s private jet, however, a gust of wind sent Kate’s hemline flying on the tarmac. (Guuuurl, we’ve all been there.) Luckily, the duchess managed to avoid any serious trouble with her dress.
Godspeed back to Britain, Will and Kate. Have a few more pina coladas on us.
