Today, the royal couple flew back to Honiara, the capital of the Solomon Islands, and after a brief farewell ceremony at the airport, boarded a private jet to take them to the tiny nation of Tuvalu, the final leg on their nine-day tour of south-east Asia and the South Pacific.

Kate wore a pale yellow eyelet dress made by an unidentified independent designer. It features a belted waist, boat neckline and flute sleeves.
