THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE ATTEND A RECEPTION AT THE BRITISH CONSUL GENERAL’S HOME, LOS ANGELES, JULY 8, 2011
William and Catherine’s first evening in Los Angeles, California was spent mingling with 200 guests at a reception at the residence of the British Consul General in historic Hancock Park. Britain’s famous sportsman, David Beckham, was among the guests who welcomed the couple to Los Angeles, though David’s wife, Victoria, who is expecting their fourth child any time now, did not attend. Other guests came from business, civic and entertainment circles.
Prince William was dressed in a dark blue suit and Guards tie, while Catherine chose to wear a bright green Diane von Furstenberg silk dress. The menu consisted of mini quiches consisting of leek, onion an cheese; endive with smoked salmon tartare; mushroom and chicken bouchees; parmesan scallion crostini with pear; Stilton tartlets with apricot chutney; chipolata sausages; Yorkshire puddings with roast beef and horseradish sauce; and Welsh rarebit.
