Prince William and Duchess Kate Arrive in L.A.
Their Royal Highnesses are in the United States!
Following their 8-day whirlwind tour of Canada, Prince William and Duchess Kate landed safely at the airport in Los Angeles at 3:50 p.m. on Friday afternoon.
What did Kate, 29, don for her very first step on American soil? A lavender Peridot dress by Roksanda Illinic and, as ever, her nude LK Bennett pumps.
She and Willam, 29, were greeted by California Governor Jerry Brown, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the Brit Ambassador to the U.S., Sir Nigel Sheinwald.
The British royals went straight from the airport to the Beverly Hilton for a UKTI reception to meet with up-and-coming entrepreneurs.
Next up Friday evenning? A meet-and-greet with senior politicians and other high-profile figures at the Consular General’s residence in Los Angeles.
After getting some shut-eye, the just-married duo will head to Santa Barbara on Saturday for a polo match, where the Prince will play and Kate will give out prizes. Stars expected at that polo match include Rosario Dawson, Orlando Bloom, Zoe Saldana, Alex Pettyfer and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
That night, even more celebs are expected — Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, Barbra Streisand, Dana Delaney, Cat Deeley and many others — at a BAFTA reception held in honor of the couple at L.A.’s Belasco Theater.
For day three in California, the pair will visit Inner City Arts, an L.A. program which helps disadvantaged and homeless children through art. That night, they’ll attend a war veterans event at Sony Studios; called “Nation: Mission Serve,” the event serves to strengthen ties between UK and US armed forces
