Prince William and his wife Catherine will have their first public engagements in London this week since last month's tour of Southeast Asia and the South Pacific.

The nine-day tour was part of a celebration for the queen's Diamond Jubliee.

The tour was nearly spoiled by the embarrassing scandal over topless pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge published by a French magazine, other European publications and on the Internet.

A French court later ordered that the photos be handed over and blocked Closer, the magazine that first published the photos, from publishing any more pictures.
