Duchess 'to FaceTime George'

Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are reportedly planning some tourist time while in New York.

Catherine and her husband William touched down in the Big Apple yesterday and have sent the city into a frenzy of excitement with fans of the British royal family hoping to catch a glimpse of the couple.

As part of the royal visit stateside they'll also be taking in the sites of Washington D.C. and are both said to be looking forward to what's still to come on the trip.

Pregnant Catherine left her and William's first born, 16-month-old Prince George, at home but will be in constant contact say royal insiders.

"They'll Skype or FaceTime to catch up," a source told People magazine.

The trip's itinerary includes a visit to Ground Zero, an NBA game and a gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to benefit their alma mater, the University of St. Andrews, reports the publication.

"They're tremendously excited," the insider added.

There'll also be time for some sightseeing, with 32-year-old Catherine said to be keen to take in famous landmarks on her first ever trip to New York.

"Kate would like to see the Statue of Liberty or the Rockettes [dance company]," the source said.

While in the city that never sleeps Catherine and William will be staying at Carlyle Hotel, a favourite amongst the royals.

"It's somewhere other members of the family have stayed, so the Palace knows it well," the source revealed.

New York publicist R. Couri Hay knew William's late mother Diana and is thrilled the prince is in town.

"It's wonderful that he's coming to a city that meant so much to his mother," he smiled.
