The itinerary for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's royal visit to California has finally been revealed! The jam packed schedule was detailed this morning at St James' Palace. After arriving in California fresh from their Canadian tour, the couple might be hoping for some rest, but there'll be no time for that. First they will meet up and coming entrepreneurs at a UKTI reception at the Beverly Hilton. This will be followed by a quick meeting with senior politicians and other high profile figures at the Consular General's residence in Los Angeles.
On July 9, William and Kate will head to Santa Barbara for a polo match, where Prince William will play and Kate will present prizes. The game is in aid of American Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry. Next it's time for some Hollywood glamour! The Duke and Duchess will walk the red carpet for a BAFTA reception at the Belasco Theater. As President of BAFTA, William will make a speech. July 10th, the pair will visit Inner-City Arts, an L.A. program which helps disadvantaged and homeless children through the arts.
That night they will attend a war veterans event at Sony studios called 'Nation, Mission, Serve'. The tour will be a double act but the couple may do separate walkabouts. The Duchess won't be giving any speeches this time. According to royal sources: 'There'll be a time and a place for that'. The couple are keen to keep their entourage to a minimum with only seven staff on board. However, Kate will look stunning especially if she brings hairdresser James Pryce. Overall I think the itinerary is excellently planned. The couple will be promoting charitable causes, and adding a little glamour along the way.
