Governor, wife to meet with Will and Kate during royal visit
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge might have a polo match and an evening with Hollywood stars on the agenda for their upcoming trip to Southern California, but they will also be spending time with another notable political couple.
The Office of the Governor announced Friday that California Gov. Jerry Brown and his wife, Anne Gust Brown, will greet the royal couple at Los Angeles International Airport when they arrive the afternoon of July 8.
That evening, the Browns will also join Prince William and his wife, Catherine, at a reception hosted by U.K. Consul-General Dame Barbara Hay at her official residence in Hancock Park.
The Duke and Duchess will spend July 8-10 in Southern California, participating in several events designed to “support the interests of the United Kingdom through the prism of the royal couple’s interest,” palace officials said.
The trip marks Catherine’s first visit to the United States. William has been to the U.S. before, but not on an official visit.
