Prince William & Kate Middleton: Hollywood Bound!
They’ll arrive on July 8 for a short, three day stay in LA. The couple will be received by the British Consulate-General for a reception at his home, where they will rub shoulders with politicians and high profile locals. That day, they will also meet with a group of entrepreneurs at a UKTI reception at the Beverly Hilton. The following day, Prince William will play a charity match at the Santa Barbara Polo Club that will support the American Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry. They’ll also attend a BAFTA dinner reception and visit the Inner-City Arts School.
Why are they making this visit Stateside?
The newlyweds are making their rounds to focus “on supporting British interest in California through the prism of their own interests,” a St. James’s Palace spokesperson says.
Of particular interest to the couple? Armed forces veterans, young people at risk, the arts, and their own charity — the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry and The Duchess of Cambridge.
