Royal newlyweds the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are to visit California in July following their week-long tour in Canada, officials have announced.

Prince William wed Princess Catherine in a lavish ceremony watched by two billion fans worldwide last Friday. Earlier this week reports suggested the couple is planning to set off on a world tour next year, taking in Commonwealth nations around the globe.

And on Thursday representatives from Prince William's office announced the pair will spend three days in California from July 8 - making it the duchess' first visit to the U.S.

A statement reads, "The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge will visit California, United States of America, following their Tour of Canada in July this year. The couple will visit the State of California from July 8 to July 10. A detailed itinerary will be published at a later date."

The Canada tour will start on June 30 and will see the royals visit Ottawa, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Alberta and the Northwest Territories, as well as embarking on a trip to the Arctic.
