LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, that’s William and Catherine to you common folk, have arrived in California to kick off their three-day jaunt around the Southland.

Jolly good show!

Prince William and Kate touched down just before 4 p.m. (tea time, natch!) Friday in a Canadian military jet.

The royal duo was greeted by a Who’s Who of California, including Governor Jerry Brown (“hello Guv’nor!”) as well as Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles and the British Ambassador and British Consul-General Dame Barbara Hay.

But  the dame everyone had eyes on, of course, was Kate. She appeared in a stunning nude-colored knee-length sheath dress.

William didn’t look too shabby either. He worea navy blue suit with a purple tie. Cheerio!

They climbed into a black Range Rover and headed for their first event, a technology summit.

They were part of a 12-car motorcade that ambled through West LA, Century City and Beverly Hills.

Throughout the route, small crowds of well-wishers stood and waved to the glam young couple.
