Prince William and Kate Middleton finally tied the knot in a televised royal wedding in London on April 29, 2011. But many Americans were as equally excited about the arrival of the Royal Couple of the United States the following July.
Middleton, now known as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, dazzled onlookers with her lilac grecian-style Alexander McQueen gown at the inaugural BAFTA Brits to Watch 2011 event in Los Angeles. She also borrowed earrings from her new mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II.
She and Prince William, who appeared in a black tuxedo, were joined on the red carpet by stars such as Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, Jennifer Lopez, Jason Batman, Jennifer Garner, Kristin Chenoweth and Jack Black.
