From black-tie events to meet-and-greets, the royals aren’t letting jetlag stop them from ruling the Big Apple and Washington DC! Check out the latest photos from their American adventure.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed over to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Dec. 9 for their final stop (womp!) on their U.S. trip. The loved-up couple walked hand-in-hand as they celebrated St. Andrews' 600th Anniversary, the University they attended.
Third time’s a charm! Kate graced the event in a navy Jenny Packham dress. The pregnant Princess wore the gorgeous silk tulle gown back in February 2014 and October 2013.
The gloomy weather didn’t stop the Duchess of Cambridge from flaunting her pregnancy glow! Princess Kate flashed a smile and waved to fans while making her way to the National September 11 Memorial Museum with her hubby.
The Duchess stunned in a pink Mulberry coat, as she laid flowers and paid her respects with Will to the victims of 911.
DIY time! Will and Kate got crafty with children from The Door and CityKids Foundation, an organization that helps disadvantaged youths.
Princess Kate removed her Mulberry coat to show off a black Seraphine dress when the duo stopped at the Creativity is GREAT Reception.
Prince William’s first ever trip to New York City may have been filled with meet-and-greets, but he was able to act like a tourist for a moment! Prince George’s dad went to the top of the Empire State building to take in the gorgeous city view.
Flirty fans! The royals got their game on at the Brooklyn Nets vs. Cleveland Cavaliers match at Barclays Center on Dec. 8.
Power couples unite! Will and Kate continued their reign of Brooklyn by meeting sporty stars Beyonce and Jay Z. “Jay Z wished Will and Kate ‘Merry Christmas’ when he was talking to them,” an eyewitness told People.
The royals were all smiles as they stood alongside basketball superstar LeBron James. Although Prince George stayed in England, he will receive an awesome (and adorable!) present when his parents return home!
The Duke of Cambridge flew from Washington DC to meet another political figure: Hillary Clinton! Accompanied by the Duchess of Cambridge, the duo shook hands and chatted with the former first lady, Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky.
The royal showed off her growing baby bump in a chic black “Washington” coat by Goat while visiting North Center for Child Development in Harlem.
Princess Kate met the First Lady of New York, Chirlane McCray, at the center to discuss the well-being of children.
So cute! The Duchess stopped to greet a fan, proving what a natural she is with children. Too bad Prince George couldn’t come along for the trip!
Meanwhile, Prince William jetted off to Washington, D.C. to meet President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. The Duke of Cambridge got a tour of the White House and chatted with the president about his son, George! “Last time, I remember when George was born, I forgot to actually work out whether it was a boy or a girl,” William told the President. “The excitement of the event and everything else was just chaos. You are suddenly… ‘Well actually it’s a boy.” He continued, “It’s going to be interesting next year.”
Pregnancy glow! Princess Kate beamed as she turned heads in a lace little black dress on her way to an event for the American Friends of The Royal Foundation.
The duo shared the spotlight as they happily made their way to their first NYC engagement.
Arriving in style! The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge made her NYC debut in a burgundy Seraphine coat. She completed the trendy look with black gloves and a matching clutch. Her handsome hubby stylishly stepped out in a smart navy blue suit.
The royal couple couldn’t help but flash smiles as crowds of New Yorkers greeted them to the Big Apple. The duo’s first stop from JFK airport was the Carlyle Hotel where Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana, stayed on her trip to NYC in the ‘90s.
Until next time!
