UPDATE: In addition to the previously announced events below, the itinerary now includes a reception hosted by the Royal Foundation and the Clinton Foundation, where the Duke will meet former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea Clinton.
This will mark the couple's first official royal visit to New York City and Washington, D.C., from the Duke of Cambridge and his wife. The couple's last official visit to the U.S. was in summer 2011 in California, which capped off a comprehensive tour of Canada.
Both Prince William and the Duchess, ages 32, will be stateside from Dec. 7 to 9 to promote their causes including the Tusk Trust, United for Wildlife, Centrepoint, Place2Be, The Art Room, and BAFTA. Upon their arrival, the pair will attend a private engagement hosted by the American Friends of The Royal Foundation in Manhattan.
The Duke and Duchess will then split on Monday, Dec. 8, with the Duke traveling to D.C., while the Duchess will remain in NYC. Prince William will attend an anti-corruption conference at the World Bank with regards to pushing his agenda to protect wildlife.
While her husband's away in the capitol, Duchess Kate, though, will not play. She will visit a local child development center in NYC and learn more about child development issues. Kate will then attend a lunch hosted by the British Consulate General.
Later that evening, the two will reunite and attend an NBA game!
The following morning, the expectant-again parents will the September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center before paying a visit to an inner city youth center and, that afternoon, a tech-themed event. Naturally, the royal couple will end their visit to the U.S. with a glam black-tie gala: The ever-fashionable Duchess and Prince William, a Patron of the University of St. Andrews 600th Anniversary Campaign, will attend the University's Gala Dinner on their final night.
