There's a lot buzz surrounding Prince William and Kate Middleton's visit to Los Angeles. Many A-listers are clamoring for an invite to one the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge swank events, but there's one well-known Brit that won't be going David Beckham. The style icon and LA Galaxy midfielder is probably in a very minute category of people that would actually turn down the royal couple. So why is Becks not attending? Being a man of priorities, Beckham has a game the day after and said to E! Online, "I’m not really allowed at events the night before a game.” We might not have had the same resolve. Gotta respect a man who keeps his commitments. [Hollywood Life]
