I'll admit that I squealed () upon reading this news. Acorn is such an adorable name.

On a more serious note, I'm really, really, happy that they have shown their support for the cause of protecting of endangered species.

I'm so glad they're coming to California. Royals should visit this part of the US more often. I'm sure Kate will love LA. I don't think she'll be there long enough to care about all the stereotypes.

I'm glad royals don't often visit LA. Imo, it would only encourage what appears to be a growing likekess between celebrity culture and royalty which I personally detest.

It would be rather cute seeing them at Disney Land however..haha.

That said, I certainly hope visits to LA are far and very few between for the Duke and Duchess and I imagine they would be.

(Please note that this is my opinion so no one get on the deffensive. I've been and I've seen on more than one occasion)

i wish the royals would visit the midwest, they go to either coast and never come close to the inland.

Do you think they might be guests of the Beckhams?

Honestly, I think part of the reason why they're going is to see the Beckhams and other celebs. Besides I don't think it's nice to come to a city and not visit your friends.

Can someone help me figure out why everyone is assuming they will be going to LA? All the official announcements say they will be going to California with a detailed itinerary revealed later on. There's plenty more to California then LA, even though I am rather fond of LA, I would rather see them in San Francisco.

I dont know why Princejohnny...I must admit that I have been to three CA cities (LA, San Diego and San Francisco) and they have all have their plusses and minuses ---- though San Francisco is my favorite city after London and Kauai.

I believe LA has a fairly large British population (in the movie industry)...isn't there an award or something that is given there for British movie industry during the summer. Didn't Sarah and Andrew attend such an event when they were married?

It was on the news a few days ago...they mentioned the royal couples trip to LA. I'm being selfish, but I hope they do come here. I love NY and San Francisco, but royals are always visiting those cities.

Are you talking about the Britannia Awards?
It's the LA version of the BAFTA. I believe Prince Andrew and Prince Edward have been presenters.

Thats exactly what I am talking about. Thanks CrownPrincess5...it makes a bit of sense now. If I recall, Sarah and Andrew also visited a film set during their trip as well.

The only difference between celebrities and royals is that celebrities actually get their status due to something they have actually done whereas royals get their status by birth and not on anything they have achieved. They are still only celebrities. LA would be perfect for them for that reason - glitz, glamour and no substance.

Prince William is not only a Royal (with a workload), but also a working man with a stressful job.

There are many people with far less stressful and dangerous jobs than Prince William, I wonder if that means they are without substance as well.
