It's Official! William and Kate Coming to California and We Know When...
They've got to hit Hollywood, right? Hit the Sunset Strip, buy some star maps, lunch at The Ivy...
Well, no matter what they do while in Cali, there's no shortage of red carpets to be rolled out for Prince William and his new bride, Kate Middleton, who today confirmed their rumored trip to the West Coast this summer, saying they will head south after a tour of Canada in their first official foreign trip as a married duo.
So, when can we expect the royal lovebirds?

The newly minted Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will hit the West Coast July 8-10, according to St. James's Palace. The couple leave for Canada on June 30 and wind their way through the country, visiting Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Alberta and Northwest Territories, celebrating Canada Day on July 1.
Wills, who headed back to his day job at Search and Rescue Pilot with the Royal Air Force (RAF) this week, has never been to the U.S. in any official capacity before, although he has come in the past on private trips. This will be Middleton's first hop across the pond.
St. James Palace is still not calling the sojourn the couple's official honeymoon. They are expected to embark on a more private, perhaps tropical trip in the coming months but no details have been announced.
The July visit may be all business, but at least Kate can put those honeymoon dresses to use now in the Golden State.
