William and Kate are California dreamin'
California, here they come.
Prince William and his bride Kate (sorry ... Catherine) will be making a side trip to the U.S. state after they finish their 10-day tour of Canada this summer.
St. James's Palace have announced the couple will be in the land of milk and honey and Arnold Schwarzenegger from July 8-10. It's the first time the Duchess of Cambridge has ever been to the States, although a genealogical study showed she has ancentral connections to the country's first president, George Washington. William has visited the U.S. privately, but this is his first official visit.
Their Canadian visit starts June 30 and includes stops in Alberta, the Northwest Territories, Prince Edward Island, Quebec. They will be in Ottawa for the July 1 Canada Day festivities.
It's a good bet they'll be seeing their friends David and Victoria Beckham in California, where the celebrity couple have inhabited a Bel Air mansion since 2007 when Becks signed with the Los Angeles Galaxy.
Meanwhile, the couple is reportedly preparing for a 10-day delayed honeymoon in May on an island in the Indian Ocean. There were reports that William would be sent to the Falkland Islands later this year as part of his helicopter pilot duties with the RAF search and rescue team. However, Clarence House has denied the claims.
