Is Kate Middleton able to genuinely enjoy her second honeymoon with Prince William?
Most likely yes, as the royal duo still maintains the sparks of love a year after their wedding, and some moments of trials can only add fuels.
The Duchess and Duke of Cambridge are wrapping up their 9-day journey to the Southeast Asia amidst media frenzy over Middleton's topless photo scandal that emerged last week.
Monday, William and Kate were having some honeymoon moments on the Solomon Island.
"Their Royal Highnesses’ stay at Tavanipupu will no doubt be one of their most memorable anywhere on the Tour," a spokesperson for the royal couple described their "second honeymoon" in a statement.

Before traveling to Tavanipupu, the Duke and Duchess were welcomed at the village of Marau, where Kate had to maintain her composure in highly awkward moments reminiscent of her ongoing scandal.
Upon their arrival, a group of topless tribeswomen welcomed Middleton and her husband, greeting the royal couple with garlands.
For a moment, Middleton had to cover her face in front of the topless islander. Later, the Duchess was seen with her eyebrows raised and lips pursed as she faced a topless sculpture in Honiora, The New York Daily News reports.
While Kate Middleton may not have been able to take the topless photo scandal off her mind at all, the gorgeous experience at a Far East resort was surely a bliss.
The royal couple stayed on the island of Marapa, in a private, $1,260-a-night, leaf-thatched bungalow with incredible amenities, and gourmet meals, according to US Magazine.
The bungalow is "peaceful and romantic," one of the island owners, Kimberly, said.
"I really wanted them to feel like they had everything they need. The fridge is fully stocked, the finest champagne, fresh fruit platter, high-tech cappuccino machine."
"It's the perfect place for honeymooners."
But William and Kate were rather modest.
"The Duke and Duchess are so down to earth. They haven't asked for one thing," the islander revealed.
The tough times of life may be serving as the bonding factor for the duo. In fact, they are still in their honeymoon period.
In August, the royal couple were spotted in numerous Olympic events in London, and
body language experts Lillian Glass and Linda Talley are confident that William and Kate are very much in love.
“They are in synch from their movements to their facial expressions which is a great sign. He absolutely adores her as he looks at her lovingly,” Glass told HollywoodLife.
“Both she and her Prince have genuine smiles as they gaze at each other. Even after a year, it appears the honeymoon is still on,” said Talley.
