They were just a couple of newly married women chatting on a beautiful Sunday morning in Los Angeles.
Of course, they also happen to be two of the most photographed people in the world – the Duchess of Cambridge and Reese Witherspoon.
They mingled at the home of businessman/film producer Steve Tisch, where Catherine and Prince William spent time with donors to Tusk USA, an organization dedicated to preserving Africa's heritage and culture.
Also on hand were actress Catherine Keener, supermodel Linda Evangelista and Kristin Gore, daughter of former Vice President Al Gore. – Mike Fleeman

Take note, Hollywood – this is how it's done.
To the screams of hundreds of fans and an explosion of camera flashes, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge brought glamour, grace and star power to a Los Angeles gala Saturday night.
After a day at the polo fields in Santa Barbara, the royal newlyweds donned formal wear – Kate in a lilac Alexander McQueen gown and earrings borrowed from the Queen, William in a classic black tux – and swept down the red carpet at the BAFTA Brits to Watch event.
"In terms of pure star quality, William and Kate are the biggest stars in the world," said Piers Morgan, among the invited guests at what became the hottest ticket in Hollywood. "The impact they've had on Hollywood, which houses the biggest stars in the world, shows you that they are."

Prince William said he didn't like to lose and he meant it.
William, 29, scored four times and his polo team won 5-2 on Saturday in a charity match before a celebrity-filled crowd at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club in Carpinteria.
His wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge handed out awards, and William gave her kisses on both cheeks as the crowd of 800 went, "Ahhhhhh."

Prince William and Catherine brought their American tour to Santa Barbara on Saturday for lunch and a polo match, and got their first big celebrity welcome.
Rob Lowe, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Molly Sims, Joe Jonas, Zoe Saldana, Rosario Dawson and Billy Zane were on hand as the royal newlyweds arrived by helicopter and walked across the lawn to the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club in Carpinteria.

She's met the princes before – William, Harry and Charles –, and she's even met the Queen, but stateside on Saturday at the BAFTA-LA dinner, she hopes to add to her royal memories.
"I've never met Kate," says Brit Cat Deeley, the host of So You Think You Can Dance, of the Duchess of Cambridge. "I'm really looking forward to it actually!"
Deeley has been tapped to be an emcee of sorts at the BAFTA 'Brits to Watch' dinner at the Belasco Theater in downtown L.A. on Saturday.

Bend the rules like Beckham?
Soccer star David Beckham wasn't on the official guest list for Friday night's reception to welcome Prince William and Catherine to the United States.
But as a friend bearing gifts (signed L.A. Galaxy jerseys for one of William's charities), Beckham breezed by security and chatted with the 29-year-old prince at the poolside mixer at the Los Angeles home of British Consul-General Barbara Hay.

It may not be as buzzed-about as her wedding gown, but after a week of fabulous fashion during her tour of Canada, the Duchess of Cambridge's dress for her only black-tie event, a BAFTA dinner in Los Angeles, does have fans on the edge of their seats.
But did Canadian soldiers spoil the surprise?
While loading luggage onto the Royal plane in Yellowknife, Canada on Wednesday, one soldier lifted a garment bag containing a rosy pleated floor-length gown and belt, presumably belonging to the princess-to-be. Reminiscent of the pretty Jenny Packham gown she wore in June, the style is very Kate – and will be perfect for hobnobbing with Hollywood brass at the BAFTA "Brits To Watch" dinner, where the guest list includes Jennifer Lopez, Tom Hanks and Nicole Kidman.

Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, were greeted with open arms on Wednesday in the northern Alberta town of Slave Lake.
Residents of the area – that was heavily damaged by wildfire in May – held up banners that read, "We love you for coming" and "Welcome Will and Kate."
Among the signs of the disaster seen by the royal couple was a burned-out vehicle.
"Having Kate and William take time out of their schedule to come here is such a boost for this community," Denise Camarneiro, 40, said. "They seem very compassionate. – Simon Perry and Dahvi Shira
