After rumors surfaced earlier this week about a possible California stopover, Clarence House confirmed today that Prince William and his new wife Kate Middleton will visit the West Coast this summer.
"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit California, United States of America, following their Tour of Canada in July this year. The Couple will visit the State of California from 8th July to 10th July 2011. A detailed itinerary will be published at a later date."
The newly married couple start their tour of Canada on June 30, visiting Ottawa, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Alberta and the Northwest Territories.
The Palace statement also noted that, although William has visited the U.S. privately, the trip will be his first "official" visit. The duchess has never visited the country "officially or privately."
Will they be hanging out with wedding attendees and L.A. residents, David and Victoria Beckham?
