Prince William and Kate Scale a 130-Foot Tree in High Spirits
Prince William and Kate Middleton were in the rain forest of Borneo this morning to explore the region and visit with conservation workers at the Danum Valley research center. After checking out the flora and fauna, William and Kate got into harnesses to scale a 130-foot tree. Both William and Kate were in great moods. Before being hoisted up, Kate joked, "I'm going to go 'whee' and just fly up." William was conscious of a potentially awkward moment with his harness. He said, "Girls don't have the same wardrobe malfunctions as men do. I hope I don't have any wardrobe malfunctions."
The royal tour of the Asia Pacific rolls on despite the publication of topless photos of Kate in a French magazine. Apparently, more intimate snaps from her recent vacation in Provence with Prince William will be published, much to the palace's dismay. Magazines in both Ireland and Italy will apparently also feature the snaps. Nonetheless, Kate and William have traveling to do. After their stay in the rain forest, they boarded a plane to their next stop in Lahad Datu and are focusing on their mission to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee while abroad.
