Better get ready, Beckhams: your favorite newlyweds are coming to visit.

Clarence House officials announced that Prince William and Kate Middleton will go to California from July 8-10 as part of their first foreign trip this summer, following their tour of Canada. According to the U.K. Telegraph, they are expected to be welcomed by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

It will be William's first official trip to the United States and (gasp!) Kate's first-ever visit to the country. Long overdue?

The couple will only have three days, so it's unlikely they'll see all the best of the sunshine state (Disneyland, Venice Beach, Tom Cruise’s mansion etc...), but we applaud them for venturing outside their general comfort zone. Remember when the pair performed a bit of royal duty in Anglesey, Wales, by pouring bubbly on… an inflatable lifeboat? Wait till they get to L.A. – they'll make it rain Pimm's Cups in a club with Snoop Dogg. (He is a fan, after all)

Prince William and his new bride are planning a trip to California, which will be the new princess's first time in the United States. TODAY's Michelle Kosinski reports.
