High life: The couple were today hoisted up a 130ft tree in the rainforest in Sabah, Borneo

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had a chance today to forget for a little while the furore surrounding the topless pictures taken of her.
The royal couple visited a rainforest in Borneo and enjoyed the high life - by being hoisted up a 130ft rainforest tree by ropes.
William and Kate toured the Danum Valley research centre in the capital state of Sabah after flying in from their tour of Malaysia.

They arrived in Kota Kinabalu from Kuala Lumpur to highlight the conservation work of the Royal Society in the state.
High-level corruption has been blamed for the destruction of the rainforests which have been turned into oil palm plantations because of continuous logging.
Less than 4 per cent of forest remains in Sabah despite the efforts of the Royal Society, of which William is a fellow.

The couple are expected to meet Sabah’s Chief Minister, Musa bin Aman, who is under investigation in Switzerland for allegedly laundering $90 million paid to him by loggers in exchange for timber licenses. Musa denies the allegations.
Kate looked relaxed in casual jeans and hiking boots, but her husband appeared occasionally stern as photographers took pictures of their walk.
