Prince William and Kate have arrived in New York in what has been the most anticipated royal visit since the days of Diana. A scheduled British Airways flight arrived at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens yesterday.
Their first stop was the storied Carlyle; then dinner for fundraisers of their Royal Foundation at the home of advertising boss Sir Martin Sorrell.
British Consul General Danny Lopez told the press early Sunday, “It’s been incredible to witness the level of excitement from people wanting to be part of it, wanting to attend, wanting to help us and support us. The level of excitement in New York has been absolutely phenomenal.”
