U-S-A! U-S-A!

Following a string of appearances in Canada, the stylish and downright adorable royals, Prince William and Kate Middleton, have arrived in L.A.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge landed at LAX around 4 p.m. local time Friday, greeting Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Gov. Jerry Brown.

Prince William took the lead and his stunning wife, who is making her first trip to the U.S., followed. She looked amazing. Big surprise there:

The Royals Arrive!
Kate, William in Canada

The Duke and Duchess touch down in America.

Kate pulled off a wardrobe change on the plane, having departed Canada in a scarlet Marianne coat-dress by Catherine Walker, only to arrive in a lavender Peridot dress designed by Roksanda Illinic and LK Bennett nude heels.

After landing at LAX, the Royals were whisked off for official business.

William and Catherine swung by The Beverly Hilton hotel for Variety's Venture Capital and New Media Summit, discussing the U.K.'s technology innovations and new media, and meeting with representatives of different companies.

Once that was over, they attended an outdoor reception held at the British Consulate-General residence, where he Duke and Duchess worked the crowd.

All throughout the day, fans have been crowding the streets of Hancock Park near the house where Prince William and Kate Middleston will reside.

Security is ridiculously tight.

"Our primary concern is to protect the rights and privacy of the residents as well as the safety of the royal couple," LAPD spokeswoman Mitzi Fierro said.

Tomorrow's itinerary includes a charity polo match at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club and then a glamorous evening at the BAFTA Awards.

Welcome, William and Kate!

Her name is NO LONGER Kate Middleton - in case you slept thru the last month, we had a Royal WEDDING!where the FORMER Miss Middleton took her husbands title. So why are you still calling her by her maiden name.

Prince William congratulation

I absolutely adore this couple. Kate is beautiful and elegant, but seems very real and down to earth. There is magic with them that was lacking with Charles and Diana and we all learned why - Camilla. But for Will and Kate, I wish them a lifetime of happiness.

Its so very nice to see royals that arent so proper that they cant even move without double/triple checking it with a 'minder'.
These two are a lovely pair. I hope their visit to the States is memorable, in a good way.
