Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are about to start their first official overseas visit.
The Royal couple is awaited at the charity event at Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club which kicks off on Thursday. The couple then will fly to southern California. Without any doubt, the couple has the star power to burn and hence the administration has raised more than $ 4.4 million from the event by the sale of 1000 VIP tickets for the polo match and about 400 general admission passes for the July 9 charity event. While Prince William plans to play in the match, his wife Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton will award the trophy to the winning team.
“The members are thrilled to host the royal couple and the public’s reaction to this special day and event has been fantastic,” according to club chairman Glen Holden, a former U.S. ambassador to Jamaica who said he has never seen anything like it in his 38 years with the exclusive polo club.
In Canada, William and Kate will join in raucous Canada Day celebrations; open the Calgary Stampede, and canoeing in the vast Northwest Territories. They will meet veterans and their families, as well as youth groups in several parts of the country.
William plans to demonstrate his skills as a helicopter rescue pilot by taking part in water landing demonstration, and the couple also plan to put on aprons and take part in a cooking workshop in Quebec City.
