Photographs taken by the Duchess of Cambridge on her recent trip to Borneo will be published on her official website this week.

Kate, who is a keen photographer, took the shots on her own camera during a visit to the Danum Valley Research Station during her Diamond Jubilee tour to South East Asia and the South Pacific with the Duke of Cambridge.

The couple travelled into the jungle to the research station in the Malaysian state of Sabah where they were hoisted more than 40 metres up into the rainforest canopy to see the eco-system.
