William and Kate enjoy a warm Hollywood welcome as they arrive in California

The Duke and Duchess if Cambridge have finally arrived in Hollywood and they couldn't have asked for better welcome! Upon arrival security intensified to a level not seen in Canada as members of the press were subjected to full body scans. Duchess Kate then walked off the plane clutching a bouquet of red, white and blue flowers, to meet dignitaries and any of you who have been following her style closely will agree, She never looked more stunning! Wearing a lavender Peridot dress by serbian born designer, Roskanda Illnic, The Duchess could easily pass for a Hollywood actress.

The couple were then swiftly taken to the UK trade and Investment and Variety's Venture Capital and New Media Summit Reception at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, They were met with screaming fans hoping to get a glimpse of the Diana's son and his beautiful wife. Kate remained totally at ease with William by her side. (How does she do it?) The couple were joined by 200 guests and greeted by David Beckham who apologised to William for his heavily pregnant wife not being there 'Victoria really wanted to come but she is just so tired at the moment'. William quickly replied 'Don't be silly, send her all our love and good luck with it all. We've had an amazing few days and seen such incredible places'. The couple also chatted with actor Stephen Fry in the garden of the Consul General's residence. It was a relatively relaxed affair for the couple where they enjoyed drinks and canapes.

Duchess Kate made an outfit change. Again she chose a stunning dress. This time she chose the emerald green, silk belted Maya by world famous designer Diane Von Furstenburg. She wore her favourite beige shoes and teamed it with a leopard print clutch bag by Diane Von Furstenburg also. It has been an incredible start to their California visit, Do you know the press are calling them 'Royal Rock Stars'? Seems appropriate, although not sure how the Queen feels :) Today is very exciting, William will play in a charity polo match, where Kate will award prizes to the winning team. Later it's the one we have all been waiting for, The BAFTA black tie dinner and reception! I'll see you all later................
