Royal Summer Santa Barbara Will Kate Middleton

Royal Summer

Visit Santa Barbara and Film Commission was pleased to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William and Kate Middleton) to The American Riviera® during their three-day visit to southern California July 8 - 10, 2011.

Additionally, VSB acknowledges the important charitable focus of this visit by Prince William and his efforts to raise awareness on behalf of many vital charities. The Prince's support sets an example globally, yet also resonates very clearly on a local level in Santa Barbara which is known for its strong environmental advocacy. Santa Barbara is an incredibly philanthropic community, placing great importance on supporting its numerous valuable and innovative nonprofit organizations that do such critical work for the city.
