Britain's royal couple due to arrive in Southern California


  • The couple is sure to create quite a stir as they travel along the scenic Pacific coast from Los Angeles to the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club
  • The royals will be welcomed to California on Friday by Gov. Jerry Brown and other dignitaries then meet with venture capitalists, industry leaders and philanthropists
  • Nick Booth, who runs the charitable Foundation of Prince William and Harry, said William and Kate, formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, haven't invited any celebrity guests to the club, located along a stunning stretch of coastline and mountains, but they won't object if any show up
  • Along with promoting British trade ties, the itinerary will call attention to causes backed by the couple and others in the royal family, including environmentalism, welfare for families of disadvantaged children, and support for military personnel
  • There won't be many opportunities for average folks to meet the royal couple, although the prince and princess do hope to exchange pleasantries with a few people between stops on their tour
