Royal wardrobe malfunction!
Usually, when Prince William and Duchess Catherine visit another country, they pay courtesy by wearing the type of clothes traditionally worn by its citizens. However, when the Royal Couple paid a visit to the Solomon Islands, they might have unintentionally worn the “wrong” outfits.
The Prince and Duchess were given ensembles to wear to a simple celebration. A rep for the two states:
“We saw they weren’t the same design of the traditional clothes we were told would be gifted. So we checked with the Solomon Islands government to ensure the right ones were worn.” But the Solomon Islands’ government “reassured the clothes were correct, and so the Duke and Duchess wore them to the event.”
Added the rep:
“It was not learned until later in the evening that the clothes weren’t from the islands. But it was understood that the Duke and Duchess intended to wear traditional Solomon Island clothes and this was appreciated. No offense was caused.”
Apparently, the outfits the Prince and Princess wore were traditional clothes of the Cook Islands. Oops!
