A royal official confirms the couple’s trip, and now we know the dates: July 8-10!

The best part of this is who will be “welcoming” the royal couple in Cali. Here’s a hint: They’ll be back, alright.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit California, United States of America, following their Tour of Canada in July this year,” says an official dispatch from Clarence House, the prince’s mouthpiece. “The Duke of Cambridge has never before visited the United States of America in an official capacity. His Royal Highness has visited the United States of America privately. The Duchess of Cambridge has never before visited the United States of America officially or privately.”

Translation: This is Kate’s first trip to the US! Her first exposure to unbridled obesity, obnoxious super-mega-jumbo-retailing, and baseball!

A report in the UK’s Telegraph says the couple will be “welcomed” by ex-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Kate and Will will take part in Canada Day celebrations in Ottawa on July 1, and they’re even going to go to the Arctic, says the Telegraph.
