If you thought Kate Middleton having topless pictures hit the Internet was bad, wait until you hear this.
She and her husband Prince William wore -- get this -- the wrong tropical shirts to dinner.
On Sept. 16, the Duke and Duchess believed they were dressing festively and appropriately for a party in the Solomon Islands.
Unknowingly, however, the pair donned a dress and shirt from Cook Islands (located nearly 3,000 miles away from the Solomon Islands) and offended the locals.
Will they have to give up their royal titles? Will the Queen have to apologize? Will Prince Charles stop putting on a kilt every time someone mentions "Scotland?"
A Clarence House spokesperson told E! News how the style mixup happened, saying: "Items of clothing were left in The Duke and Duchess's hotel room as had previously been agreed with the Solomon Island Government (SIG). Given that the items were not of the same design as the Royal Household had been informed previously, the Duke and Duchess's staff undertook to check that the items of clothing were indeed the gifts of the Government and not a gift from any other individual."
Or were they? Do we know where the treacherous Prince Harry the Naked was at the time?
"Once the necessary reassurances were received from the Government, mistakenly as it later appeared, Their Royal Highnesses wore the shirt and the dress as an appropriate gesture befitting their close ties
"The situation arose through no fault of Solomon Island Government or the Royal Household," added the spokesperson. "The original gifts (the shirts) are now with The Duke and will be kept by him for personal use, as a memento of his and The Duchess's wonderful time on Solomon Islands."

ROBERT PATTINSON AND KRISTEN STEWART ARE DOING SOMETHING: Depending on who you believe, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are either talking, not talking, living together, not living together, going on vacation, huddling in seclusion, or are robots built for publicity purposes.
Today's update, brought to you by Us Weekly, is the couple is living together again.
"They are living together and have reconciled," an insider told the magazine, adding that things aren't exactly as they were before. The source said the couple had a "dramatic makeup" but Pattinson remains on edge as he is "extra-sensitive right now" and "he's insecure."
That's some extra special insight, right there.
Meanwhile, OK! said the pair is planning a "secret getaway" to reconnect with one another, in an attempt to mend their strained relationship, after Stewart cheated with director Rupert Sanders last summer.
"Rob and Kristen are trying to decide where they can go to get away from it all for a while and just be together, without all the distractions," a source told the magazine.
They should go to Fresno. No one would expect it.
While the couple is reportedly trying to work things out, they are allegedly dealing with pressure from family. Earlier this month, RadarOnline reported that Pattinson's two sisters, Lizzy and Victoria, immediately came to his defense when they learned of the affair, and they don't approve of his decision to take Stewart back, because they believe "once a cheater, always a cheater."
Imagine that -- women not liking another woman who cheated on their rich and famous brother.
Pattinson allegedly hasn't completely forgiven his girlfriend of four years. Virgin Media said Pattinson is giving the 22-year-old actress a one-month "trial," as he's still not sure their relationship can recover from her betrayal.
''Robert has had a lot of time to reflect on what has happened and, while he may still be hurting, he has also come to realize just how important Kristen is to him," a source told the website. 'He has warned Kristen that he might never be able to forgive and forget. But he's agreed to give it a month to see if they can make it work. If they can't he says he will walk away.''
It's a good bet these stories will continue, at least until Nov. 16, which is the release date of the new "Twilight" film.
KATY PERRY LOVES JOHN MAYER: John Mayer: Women want him and men don't want to be like him.
OK ... maybe a little.
This "Katy Perry LOVES John Mayer" story isn't going away anytime soon. Here's the latest from RadarOnline, via the always reliable "source."
"Katy's friends and family haven't taken to John at all, in fact they are worried that she is headed for heartbreak," the source revealed. "She's been telling everybody who cares to listen how great John is and it's clear that she is totally in love with him. "
Wasn't "Headed for a Heartbreak" an '80s hair metal ballad? No, really. It was. Who did that? Anyway, back to the important stuff.
"At first, she was quite careful with John and said she wasn't ready for a relationship and just wanted to have fun. But now she appears to have fallen dangerously in love with him and her friends are concerned. "
That's the way it goes with John Mayer. He's like the snake in "The Jungle Book." He gazes deep into your eyes and, before you know it, he's got you in his coils.
Sorry. I watch a lot of cartoons with my 4-year-old.
So, apparently Perry is more fragile than she looks, Radar Online says. When Mayer dumped her after only a few weeks, she was surprisingly devastated. And fame, wheelbarrows full of money, and the ability to pretty much pick whatever other guy she wants just wasn't enough.
"Now that she has invested more feelings in John and has let her guard down, there's only one way this can end... in disaster!" the source predicted.
That's right. The source used an exclamation point. This must be serious.
MADONNA SAYS THE PRESIDENT IS NOT MUSLIM: Madonna says she was being ironic when she called President Obama "a black Muslim" onstage Monday night in Washington D.C.
He's not a Muslim, she now says. He's a commie.
OK, she didn't say that.
"I was being ironic on stage," the singer said Tuesday in a statement. "Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim -- though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were? The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don't care what religion Obama is -- nor should anyone else in America."
Yeah, but what if he is a commie? Huh? What then?
Madonna caused a big stir -- which she never likes doing -- when she said "Y'all better vote for (expletive) Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. Now that's some amazing (expletive)," she said. "It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, goddamnit."
In September, while Obama was speaking at the Democratic National Convention, Madonna, 54, showed off an Obama tattoo on her lower back during a concert in New York. The tattoo was mostly likely temporary.
PARIS HILTON DOCUMENTARY SHELVED: Executives at TV network Logo have shelved a documentary about Paris Hilton following the her controversial comments about AIDS.
Maybe the Discovery Channel should pick it up. They run documentaries about disasters all the time.
Thanks. I'll be here all week.
The socialite was recorded discussing homosexuals, HIV and gay social networking website Grindr with a friend during a cab ride in New York earlier this month.
During the conversation, Hilton was heard saying, "Gay guys are the horniest people in the word. ... Most of them probably have AIDS. ... I would be so scared if I was a gay guy... you'll, like, die of AIDS."
She's, like, stupid.
Hilton issued an apology after the comments were made public, but the move didn't stop chiefs at Logo from pulling the 2007 documentary, "Paris Hilton, Inc.," which was set to air twice this week on the channel.
A representative for the channel says the documentary "has been removed from the schedule," according to MSN.com.
