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.

    Such negativity…People need to start cooling off and getting so much hatred out of their systems, it is very unhealthy.

    The snotty comment about William and Catherine having to stay in log cabins in Canada compared to “palatial” american lodgings is not appreciated. At least they were exposed to a real country, not the plastic hollywood set south of the border
