Royal honeymoon: Kate and William headed to Hollywood?
Are Prince William and Kate Middleton, the duke and duchess of Cambridge, headed to Hollywood? The royal couple could be gracing the Ministry's hometown as early as July, if a new rumor pans out.
Longtime royal-family journalist Andrew Morton suggests that aides to the newlyweds have penciled a two-day visit to sunny Los Angeles in their official diary, on the heels of a visit to Canada -- around July 1 -- their first official journey as man and wife.
"It looks likely that David and Victoria Beckham, who were guests at the royal wedding on Friday, would be involved," Morton writes.
As we hyperventilate with excitement over a possible royal visit, we're even more enthralled with what their trip might have in store. A tour of the Universal Studios Hollywood back lot? Dinner with Posh and Becks at Soho House?
When the Beckhams relocated from London to L.A., they got a star-studded reception bash from Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett. Would the duke and duchess deserve anything less?
Whether a Southern California jaunt awaits the royal honeymooners -- and we know how accurate earlier speculation turned out to be -- nothing is official. St. James Palace confirmed that the pair delayed an immediate honeymoon in favor of a weekend getaway after their April 29 nuptials, with a longer trip overseas to follow.
If Kate and William were planning a short trip to L.A., which must-see sights would you recommend?
