NEW YORK, N.Y. - Britain's Prince William and his wife, Kate, have arrived in New York City on the royal couple's first official visit to the U.S.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's motorcade pulled up outside the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan Sunday night to a throng of media and shrieking admirers, who were kept behind police barricades across Madison Avenue.

The two have a full schedule of events in the city, including a visit to the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum and a basketball game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

William also is set to meet with President Barack Obama at the White House on Monday. Kate is scheduled to tour a New York child development centre with the city's first lady, Chirlane McCray.

Kate is expecting their second child in April.
