William And Kate’s Official LA Trip Itinerary Details
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s official tour itinerary has been released! According to People, we’ll know all about how the royal couple will spend their three days in Los Angeles come July 8th. There’s a little polo playing mixed with a little schmoozing, then topped off with good will. An overview of Will and Kate’s trip was released Wednesday by St. James’s Palace, stating that the newlyweds will focus “on supporting British interest in California through the prism of their own interests.” How royal. We’re more concerned about what Catherine’s wearing, as it’s been reported that she’s not traveling with a huge entourage to help with 40+ outfit changes.
Friday Evening, July 8th: William and Catherine will attend a Consular-General Reception “on behalf of United Kingdom Trade and Investment, a government department that looks after British business interests and start-ups overseas.”
Saturday, July 9th: William and Catherine will travel up to Santa Barbara so that William can participate in a match at the Santa Barbara Polo Club to benefit the American Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry. Since this is Catherine’s first trip to the states, what better place to kick back and watch the hubby play?

Saturday Evening: The royal couple will attend a black-tie dinner for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts at 1926 Belasco Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. William is the president of the academy, which will throw its inaugural “BAFTA Brits To Watch” event at the recently-renovated theater.
Sunday, July 1oth: the Duke and Duchess will have some down time (it’s reported that they’ll stay at the Beverly Hills hotel), so perhaps they’ll pop over to Rodeo or take a drive up the PCH. After, they’ll visit the Inner-City Arts School. Following that trip, they’ll attend the Service Nation: Mission Serve job fair for veterans over at Sony Studios in Culver City.
After all is said and done, William and Catherine will pop on over to LAX to head back to England. And we’ll sit and wonder why the hell we thought having a monarchy was a crap idea.
