Grateful William and Catherine head back to Europe
FUNAFUTI (AFP) - Britain's Prince William and wife Catherine flew home on Wednesday after a night of feasting and dancing in Tuvalu, grateful for a ban on further publication of topless photos of the duchess.
The royal couple jetted out of the tiny Pacific nation just hours after French authorities ordered the magazine Closer to hand over all forms of the "particularly intrusive" pictures to the royal couple.
"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcome the judge's ruling", a statement from St James's Palace in London said, using William and Catherine's official titles.
As the French court was delivering its ruling, the future British king and his wife were treated to a traditional Tuvalu feast of pigs, lobster, coconut crabs and local fresh fruit.
