British Royal Newlyweds To Visit California

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) — Prince William and his new wife Kate Middleton, also known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, plan to visit California this summer.

British government officials announced the trip on Thursday, saying the couple would be in California from July 8-10 after completing a tour of Canada.

No itinerary was provided for the trip, so it was not immediately known exactly where the couple would be staying while visiting the Golden State.

The couple was married on Apr. 29 at Westminster Abbey in London in an internationally televised ceremony watched by an estimated two-billion viewers.

Following their wedding, the newlyweds spent the weekend at an undisclosed location in the United Kingdom — but they postponed their honeymoon, which was to be overseas.

Prince William, 28, has since returned to work at the Royal Air Force base in Anglesey, Wales, where he is a search-and-rescue pilot.
