Kate and William ride open-top boat float in Solomon Islands

Report by Sophie Foster

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have landed in the Solomon Islands for the next leg of their Jubilee tour, being greeted by island warriors brandishing spears and bows and arrows.

The Royal Solomon Islands Police Force band performed the national anthems of both Great Britain and the Solomon Islands, after which a platoon of the police force formed an Honour Guard.

Crowds then lined the streets as the Royal couple were transported from the airport in an open-top vehicle made to resemble a traditional canoe with a leaf roof canopy.

The couple will stay in the Solomon Islands until Tuesday when they will travel to the Pacific nation of Tuvalu.
