Talk about star power! Let's see any Hollywood couple pull this off!
In just a few short weeks, Los Angeles will be honored with the royal presence of Prince William and Kate Middleton as they will be in the area to attend BAFTA's inaugural Brits to Watch gala. The black-tie affair extend invitations only to the head honchos of studios, networks and talent agencies, with a $25,000 price tag. According to one of the organizers, the event is now “essentially sold out!"
Apparently, studios like Universal, 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros. and Disney all jumped at the opportunity to rub elbows with the royal pair and some even went as far as purchasing two tables!
Well, we know one thing for sure. The 42 talented British youngins being honored that evening should be VERY grateful to their future King and Queen. They've essentially helped put them on the radar of every major studio in town!
