Prince William Greeted by David Beckham

Soccer star David Beckham welcomed Prince William and Catherine to the Golden State during a reception at British Consul General Dame Barbara Hay's residence in Los Angeles Friday.

Beckham was joined by 200 guests at the Hancock park residence.

Chief executive of Disney Bob Iger and Lord Freddie Windsor who was accompanied by his wife actress Sophie Winkleman were among the notable guests included.

Beckham who arrived alone was not on the official guest list for the reception but royal aides say he wanted to welcome the couple to Los Angeles and deliver several autographed LA Galaxy shirts for Prince William to auction off for one of his charities, according to the Daily Mail.

Beckham, who left his pregnant wife Victoria at home, spoke to the prince about anticipating the arrival of their baby girl within the next week. The Beckhams attended the royal couple's wedding in April.

"Victoria really wanted to come but she is just so tired at the moment. She sent you both lots of love," the soccer star told the Prince, the Mail reported.
