I would think that the Cambridges' found it a pretty warm welcome though. From some pictures that I saw, there were a lot of people waiting to greet them at the airport waving the Union Jack.

Only shows how smart New Yorkers are. The Cambridges were visible for - 30 seconds?

William is taking the shuttle from LaGuardia to DC's Reagan National Airport. Reagan National is the smaller DC airport just south of the Capital on the Potomac. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B4VrRXjIEAAKieA.jpg

Red tie, blue shirt.

OH, BTW, Re: security. We've been having protest marches across the nation for a couple of weeks now. The issue is perceived excessive force used by police when making arrests, just FYI. Some violence here and there and disruption of traffic on highways, but, there may be protests at the BB game tonight. http://www.trust.org/item/20141208005517-yh3i1/

First Lady of New York starry-eyed about US visit of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - Telegraph
Quote:
She is a black former lesbian poetess who celebrated her husband’s triumph in New York’s mayoral elections a year ago by joining him on stage to the song lyrics “we'll never be royals ... that kind of luxe just ain't for us".

The choice of “Royals” by Lorde as a victory anthem reflected the left-wing anti-privilege campaign run by Bill de Blasio, a liberal Democrat, and Chirlane McCray, his wife, confidante and closest adviser.

So in many ways, it will be an unlikely double act when Ms McCray, an avowed foe of the establishment, hosts the Duchess of Cambridge on a trip to a child development centre in Harlem on Monday.

It's a good thing that Kate left behind her Tiger on a gold leash back in London 😛

I would be willing to bet my last candy cane that Chirlane McCray will never again (if she ever has) think of Kate as a "royal with a luxe life" type of a person once she gets an eyeful of how Kate interacts with children. I think those two may very well find out that they have many similar interests. At least I hope so.

I haven't read any reports on the exact numbers, but reporters on Twitter were saying it was a nice sized crowd.

Royal gala dinner at Met tomorrow is a sell out - all 450 seats. Renee Fleming will perform, not Sting. Princess Eugenie expected.

The president meets a future king: Prince William flies to Washington to shake hands with Obama at the White House | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Prince William has arrived in Washington, D.C., to meet President Barack Obama in the White House.

The future king left his pregnant wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, in New York - where the couple arrived Sunday night to a rock star welcome.

Prince William - who is second in line for the British throne - will meet with Obama in the Oval Office this afternoon.

The two have met before - but never on Obama's home turf. The last time the two met was in London.

William is also slated to give a speech on how to stop poaching and wildlife trafficking at the World Bank.

Prince William told President Obama that they were so excited about George's birth, that they forgot to ask if he was a boy or girl.
