Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Hollywood Visit

HollywoodNews.com: On Sunday morning, Prince William and Princess Catherine (am I the only one who doesn’t get the Kate with a K and Catherine with a C?) make a Hollywood appearance for the Tusk Trust. This is a British charity that raises money to help stem the tide of elephant[...]
