Kate Middleton and Prince William showed up at their second event in California after Kate and Will touched down in LA yesterday. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were honored with a reception at the Hancock Park home of the British Consulate after sitting down for the Variety technology conference earlier in the day. Governor Jerry Brown and his wife were on hand for the party as was fellow Brit David Beckham. David looked dapper in a suit, just as he did during the couple's April nuptials that he and Victoria attended. David Beckham said to Prince William that "Victoria really wanted to come but she is just so tired at the moment. She sent you both lots of love." Kate wore color in the form of a green Diane Von Furstenberg dress, which she paired with a leopard clutch by the same American designer. Today Kate and William will continue their West Coast visit at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club, where William will participate in a polo match and Kate will award the winning team their prize.

Ben Affleck went shaggy for a Starbucks stop near his Brentwood home on Friday morning. Ben was solo for his coffee run, but spent last July 4 holiday weekend by his girls' side, hanging out with Jennifer Garner and their daughters Seraphina Affleck and Violet Affleck. The Garner-Afflecks attended a Fourth of July parade in their neighborhood, which has become something of a tradition for the family, and also had breakfast by the beach at Shutters in Santa Monica. Ben is enjoying some downtime at home after spending much of the Spring on the road as he scouted locations for his upcoming directorial project. The movie, Argo, will star Ben and Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, and is expected to shoot throughout the Middle East.
