The royal visit: Will and Kate arrive in Los Angeles

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Los Angeles International Airport late Friday afternoon, alighting from a Royal Canadian Air Force A310 that flew them in from Calgary after their whirlwind tour of Canada, stepping into the bright, welcoming sunshine of a Southern California summer day.

They were greeted by Gov. Jerry Brown, his wife, Anne Gust Brown, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and Sir Nigel Sheinwald, the British ambassador to the United States. After being whisked to a British technology conference in Beverly Hills, they headed to the consul-general’s residence in Hancock Park, where they were staying, and attended a reception later in the evening in their honor.

Next up: Will and Kate’s Saturday in the Southland.

Relive their special day in April with Framework’s royal wedding photo gallery.

    I think both William and Kate are a very gracious and very in love. Kate always looks like she is really enjoying everything and loves William very much.

    Hi
    LA Times:

    We had a fabulous time watching and enjoying the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their first trip abroad to Canada and to my home town of Calgary. I'm sure you will enjoy their visit to California. The Royals flew to LA on a "Canadian Forces" A330. The RCAF no longer exists as The Canadian Forces was formed from all of our Armed Forces back in the mid 1960's.

    Cheers from Calgary!

    And the aircraft type was not an A330, it was an A310 as written in the article. The CF A310's which were all descendent's of the former Wardair (Canada) airline were purchased from Canadian Airlines (themselves having bought Wardair) by the Canadian government to help the debt ridden Canadian Airlines dump these planes which did not meet Canadian Airlines fleet requirements.

    There seems to be more close up coverage in the US than in Canada. CBC said they were covering the trip all weekend and there are only the tiniest snippets of not even interesting or up to date news or photos on tv. It seems Canadian coverage is slow in getting their coverage online too. I see that this is LA too and maybe that's why but still, better coverage is better coverage. In the US that is.
