• Royal couple expresses sorrow over Solomon floodings


    AUCKLAND: Britain’s Prince William and his wife Catherine expressed their sorrow on Friday at deadly flooding in the Solomon Islands, where the royal couple took an idyllic tropical break in 2012. More that 20 people were killed when flash flooding tore through the Pacific nation’s capital Honiara last week, sweeping away entire communities and leaving thousands homeless. The royal couple, who are currently on a tour of New Zealand, offered their sympathies to the Solomons, where William’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth II is head of state.
