William and Kate land in Los Angeles for start of US trip
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have landed at Los Angeles International Airport to start their weekend trip to California.
The couple's arrival Friday comes after a nine-day visit to Canada, their first foreign trip since they were married in April.
After being welcomed by California Gov. Jerry Brown, they are going to the Beverly Hilton to attend a technology entrepreneur summit.
Though Prince William has been to America before, it will be Kate's first trip to the U.S. William's late mother, Princess Diana, who would have turned 50 this month, charmed Americans when she visited in the 1980s.
Authorities have put the paparazzi on notice that aggressive actions will not be tolerated. Photographers were partly blamed for causing the Paris crash that killed Princess Diana in 1997.
