Southern California is SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO excited to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Los Angeles tomorrow. We know that Canada was thrilled to host Prince William and Kate, but American is just as ecstatic to be in the presence of royalty. And by royalty we don’t mean Tom Cruise or Steven Speilberg. Nay, for we are talking about the kind of royalty that actually counts and uses shiny things like crowns and such.
No doubt Tom Hanks and Jennifer Lopez are wetting themselves over Saturday night’s BAFTA gala in downtown Los Angeles. There, 42 up-and-coming “Brits To Watch” will mingle with Nicole Kidman and Maria Bello while trying their very best to meet William and Kate (no one gives a rats about Barbra Streisand when the future King of England is in the room. Be serious). According to People, other stars who are expected to attended Saturday’s event at the Belasco Theater include Rita Wilson, Marc Anthony, Zach Galifinakis, Ed Helms, Jack Black, James Brolin, Chris Evans, Ginnifer Goodwin, Judd Apatow and wife Leslie Mann, Jason Bateman, Nigel Lythgoe, Cat Deeley, Derek Hough, Mekhi Phifer, Gemma Arterton, director Jason Reitman and Zooey Deschanel.
Even Kitson on Robertson Boulevard is decked out to welcome William and Kate! And you can forget about getting anywhere near Hancock Park this weekend. TRH will be staying in one of the seven bedrooms at the British Consul-General’s Mediterranean pad.
