Steve And Rondi Hang With William And Kate

Steve Ruchefsky and Rondi Charleston

When Prince William and Kate — er, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge — attended last night’s black-tie fundraiser for the University of St. Andrews (their 600-year-old alma mater), Westporters Steve Ruchefsky and Rondi Charleston were in the house.

The house, of course, was the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Steve and Rondi scored their seats — 2 tables away from Will and Kate, in the Temple of Dendur — because a fellow board member of Steve’s company, Kite Pharma, is a St. Andrews alum.

The prince gave a lovely speech, Rondi says, and Renee Fleming sang. Seth Meyers spoke, and was quite funny.

So did Steve and Rondi get to chat with the royals?

Unfortunately, no. Rondi reports there was a strict “no schmoozing” protocol.

Fie!

Prince William, last night at the Met.

      They appear to be a very nice couple and relatively down to earth (as royals go) but why have a social event that doesn’t allow socializing?

    I am hard-pressed to think of any issue anywhere in the world including the U.S. that these 2 have any significant impact on-including in their own country. So we celebrate them?
