The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have arrived in New York for a tour of the east coast of the United States, according to a BBC report.
The couple are in the country for three days, during which Prince William will meet President Barack Obama.
Catherine, who is pregnant with the couple’s second child, will accompany the duke to pay respects to those who died in the 9/11 terror attacks.
Danny Lopez, the British consul general in New York, said there had been “incredible interest” in the visit.
He added there has been a huge “level of excitement” from people in the city.
Prince William is also expected to give a speech at a World Bank conference in Washington on combating illegal wildlife trafficking.
Highlighting the scale of the problem the prince is expected to say “some endangered species are now literally worth more than their weight in gold”.
