I think she's reacting as any real lady would if half you people that left those raunchy comments would see if you knew what a lady was. Obviously your mothers never tought you much of anything.

His warrior costume is obviously ceremonial in design, (not much good for fighting) and it probably doesn't usually include the black high riding thong he is wearing. (That was likely added to avoid embarrassing the Royals.) She seems to be nervous and embarrassed anyway, as would just about anyone else meeting a representative from a native tribe who has no presupposed concept of modern civilized modesty. There is also the possibility that it was done for publicity or fun, at the expense of the Royals.

I think it was ceremonial dress, and meant to honor the royal couple. Would it have been better if the Duchess ha screeched, turned her head,, covered her eyes and acted offended? She did exactly what she should have done---reacted like she would have to any other person in native dress when visiting their country. The Victorian Age ended a long time ago.

What a marvelous personality Kate must be. Always a pleasant smile not like some others that come to mind that is always frowning unless ranting about the short comings of America or being momentarily proud of the country!

The photographer shoots pictures at rapid fire. For some reason he decide to post the one of her eyes down instead of up as she scanned the whole scene before her.

I ASSUME THE WORRIOR HAD TATTOOS ON HIS FRONT SIDE AS WELL. AND KATE WAS OBSERVING THE DESIGNS. I THINK MOST PEOPLE WOULD..I DO NOT BELIEVE THERE IS ANY BUT PURE INNOCENTS.....THIS COUPLE ARE ROLL MODELS FOR ALL OF US..IN FACT THE WHOLE WORLD..ITS VERY REFRESHING TO SEE SOME DECENTCY AND PROUD. YET HUMBLE COUPLE.

Since when did they become role models for the whole world? Not...... at least for me they aren't. Humble and decency? that's the role they play. Those people are loaded with money and aristocracy and there is nothing humble about them and as far as decency, we don't know what really goes on behind the doors of the Royals, do you think they tell you everything? NOT. I mean that's another country why would you think they would be role models for you?

So you would rather believe there is not decency in them, with no proof rather than believe they are decent, also without proof. Guess we know where your mind is. I don't know what goes on behind the doors but you don't either and I choose to believe they are a nice couple in a situation they did not pick. He didn't ask to be born royal. They seem to be down to earth and nice, no one has said she pulled rank at the grocery store while she was pushing her cart around getting dinner. Everyone has said they are very nice so I will take that and be happy for them.
