Duchess Catherine to watch the Rockettes?
Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge reportedly wants to watch the Rockettes during her trip to New York.
The 32-year-old royal is set to embark on three-day tour of the American state and city with husband Prince William this weekend and although they have a hectic schedule, she’s said to be planning to fit in some sightseeing.
Duchess Catherine – also known by her non-royal name Kate Middleton – is keen to visit some of the top tourist spots and even take in one of the legendary dance company’s shows.
A source told PEOPLE magazine: “Somebody told me that Kate would like to see the Statue of Liberty or the Rockettes while she is here.”
The royal couple – who will be travelling without Prince George – will arrive in New York on Sunday (07.12.14) and, after freshening up at the Carlyle hotel on the city’s Upper East Side, they will attend a private dinner with the president of the American Friends of the Royal Foundation, the New York Post newspaper’s PageSix reports.
William and Catherine – who are expected to travel to Brooklyn the next day to watch a Brooklyn Nets basketball game – are predicted to receive the same warm welcome as the Prince’s late mother Princess Diana did on her trips to the big apple.
New York society publicist R. Couri Hay told PEOPLE: “She [Catherine] is so relatable, but has that glamour and sparkle. They will create a frenzy that could match Princess Diana’s [past] visits.”
