Prince William, Kate Middleton Visit New York City's Carlyle Hotel In Manhattan, Start U.S. Tour

NEW YORK - Britain's Prince William and his wife, Kate, have arrived in New York City on the royal couple's first official visit to the U.S.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's motorcade pulled up outside the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan Sunday night to a throng of media and shrieking admirers, who were kept behind police barricades across Madison Avenue.

The two have a full schedule of events in the city, including a visit to the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum and a basketball game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

William also is set to meet with President Barack Obama at the White House on Monday. Kate is scheduled to tour a New York child development centre with the city's first lady, Chirlane McCray.

Kate is expecting their second child in April.

    The brand’s Nude Sledge Pumps have been a staple of Kate’s wardrobe for years. The neutral color and classic design are very versatile and she wears them with dresses and skirts in a range of colors and styles. "With all the social and professional functions the Duchess attends, she needs a comfortable yet gorgeous heel that creates a polished look,” says etiquette expert and founder of Beaumont Etiquette Myka Meier.

    After designing her wedding dress in 2011, Kate has turned to Sarah Burton to design a number of dresses and coats, including the cream-colored dress she wore to Prince George’s Christening. “You’ll never see the Duchess with revealing cleavage in order to keep her sophisticated look. She typically will be seen wearing a V-neckline or even more commonly, high collared pieces which are a signature of McQueen,” comments Myka. “Kate looks fantastic in tailored pieces and there's no better designer to create these looks for her. She can always rely on this powerful yet elegant British brand’s style for her most important occasions.” U.S. shoppers can visit Alexander McQueen flagships across the country and in select department stores.

    Dressing Hollywood stars as well as England’s future Queen for years, Jenny Packham has created both chic daytime looks and glamorous evening gowns for Kate. “When it comes to elegant, formal affairs, Kate often chooses long evening wear with elements of sparkle. She has chosen to wear Jenny's dresses to some of her biggest functions, as they are a guaranteed hit,” Myka says. Brides-to-be can shop for a Jenny Packham dress for their wedding. And if you need a fabulous frock for a cocktail party or more formal affair, Bergdorf Goodman in New York is a stockist.

    A fan of the label since its launch in 2010, Kate has been seen accessorizing an outfit with a Beulah London scarf, or dressed up in one of the line’s stylish dresses. “The Duchess is not afraid to experiment with bold styles, colors and textures, and is known for her choice of vibrant shades and gorgeous flowing fabrics. She has no need to over accessorize because the dresses she chooses are the statement pieces,” said Myka. “One of her most memorable looks was the stunning bright red Beulah London gown she wore at a London event soon after her engagement to Prince William was announced.” Dresses, jackets, bags, scarves and other designs are available at

    We may only remember Kate wearing one Burberry trench-style coat a few years ago but the brand is as British as it gets. American women who are looking for a classic trench coat for a rainy day can shop for their own Burberry coat in stores across the country, or the brand's department at Nordstrom.

    Kate has been wearing Mulberry for years and has been spotted carrying the brand’s stylish bags on multiple occasions. "A favorite classic British brand known for it’s gorgeous leather handbags, Mulberry is a fashion staple for the royals. Sophisticated, yet playful with the seasonal collections of bright colors, Mulberry matches the Duchess’ style to a T," says Myka. Kate’s closet now includes the brand’s ready-to-wear designs, including several daytime dresses. With a store open on New York’s Madison Avenue, we think the Cambridges may be spotted in Mulberry at least once while in town. In addition to the New York flagship, Mulberry has stores around the country, and the line is available online too at

    The Duchess has her favorite staple pieces and can be seen recycling them by mixing and matching various items in her closet. “She's great at taking a dress and pulling a blazer or cropped tweed jacket over it to create an entirely different look,” Myka tells Huffington Post Style. Over the past few years Kate has worn this chic blue Stella McCartney dress accessorizing it in different ways – with a navy blazer, different pumps, and various necklaces. Stella McCartney has boutiques across the country and is also sold in department stores and specialty boutiques. You can also find Stella McCartney sportswear at Adidas to look oh-so stylish at the gym.

    Kate has worn a number of Reiss dresses to high-profile events, including meeting the Obamas in 2011. The company told Marie Claire UK that users clamoring to buy a dress worn by Kate crashed the site, and subsequently bought out the dress when it went back online. Several of Kate’s Reiss picks have also sold out. Reiss has a number of retail stores in the United States. You can find one near you, or shop online, at
