Hollywood gets ready to welcome royal couple for tightly scripted weekend
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Following a nine-day visit to Canada, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are heading south to spend a tightly scripted weekend in Los Angeles.
Trips to the beach, Disneyland or Universal Studios are off the royal agenda as the couple instead focuses on charitable work, promoting British interests in the U.S. and a game of polo near Santa Barbara.
The royal couple is due to touch down Friday afternoon at Los Angeles International Airport and will be welcomed by California Gov. Jerry Brown and his wife.
The newlyweds will arrive after spending more than a week in Canada, where they were met with enthusiastic crowds as they crisscrossed the country.(backslash)
