The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in New York City this evening for a whirlwind, three-night trip. I was going to join them but we decided it would be better for me to visit after baby #2 was born and that way we could all hang out and I could exercise my role as godmother more prominently. William will visit D.C. tomorrow and have a chat with President Obama; Catherine will spend the day in the city focusing on her children’s charities.
During the trip there will be a gala dinner for St. Andrews University and tomorrow night the Royal couple will attend a Brooklyn Nets game. While I am disappointed that I can’t be there, I’m excited to report that a cousin of a dear friend of mine might actually meet the couple, since Kathleen’s cousin is a manger at the 9/11 Memorial Museum (please note without a trace of a joke that I am also impressed by anyone who is a manager at the 9/11 Memorial Museum). Kathleen, keep us posted!
I know I’ve missed some recent events, but I hope to follow these pretty closely. We’ll see–it’s delightful to have my favorite couple back in America!
