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.

      Maybe Pippa would like to tag along, with the new photos she appears to be a Brit that knows how to have a good time. What was the name of the dog that the shark ate in the original “Jaws”? Pippet?

    Someone should tell them that the coast has lots of fog that time of year. Visit Yosemite. They’ll like it.

    Bring your wallets.

    The State of California will not let you leave without confiscating 50% of what you make to support their illegals and other freeloaders.

    The media and the paparazzi better not ruin the Duke and Duchess’ personal moment in the Golden State! I hate to see the Princess Diana moment happen to Catherine, too.

  18. Ron says:

    When the Royals request police security, I hope the California Mayors are smart enough to tell them “cash up front”. Funny how whenever anything like this happens, the police only schedule cops who will be on “overtime”, as their fellow officers will be too busy writing tickets.

    Beware: As soon as you enter California you will instantly become a US citizen.

    Why do we put the “Royal” family on a pedestal? My great great grand parents left that miserable island years ago. The royal family does not hold political office and does not legislate. Until recently, they are a bunch of first cousin marrying in bred freaks. I guess there is still a need to worship someone and place them on a pedestal.
