NEW YORK (AP) Prince William's wife, Kate, has been getting to know some prominent British arts, technology, design and media figures in New York on her first visit to the city.
The Duchess of Cambridge joined them for lunch at British Consul General Danny Lopez's home Monday after she toured a child development center with New York City's first lady.
Meanwhile, Prince William went to Washington to meet with President Barack Obama at the Oval Office and discuss illegal wildlife trafficking.
Kate chatted with guests including actor Matthew Rhys, TV and theater producer Colin Callender, Parsons The New School of Design fashion dean Simon Collins and Pete Cashmore, the founder of the tech news site Mashable.
