As much as this Los Angelino would like to say it’s because they’re picking up and moving to California officially, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex actually were here on business. The couple visited Stanford University in Palo Alto on Tuesday to attend a brainstorming session among professors, academics and, apparently, royals.
According to Today, the meeting was aimed at helping them sort out their new charitable organization and nail down ways they can be most impactful with their humanitarian work. As you may remember, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their new foundation in January simultaneously with their decision to shed their official royal duties.
The couple reportedly flew commercial (how were they not inundated by fans?) from their new temporary home on Vancouver Island and were greeted by university president Marc Tessier-Lavigne upon their arrival at Stanford.
