Britain's Prince William and Princess Catherine Middleton plan to combine red-carpet glamour with charity work during a trip to Los Angeles next month.

The couple, known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will hold a black time dinner to introduce young British film talent to Hollywood decision makers.

They will also meet with inner city youth and military families and attend a charity polo match in Santa Barbara. William will play and Middleton will award the trophy.

The three day visit, from July 8-10, will be Middleton's first trip to the United States. It will follow a longer trip to Canada.
