So you've heard. Kate Middleton and Prince William are crossing the pond for a New York visit in December. They will wrap up their Empire State adventure with a classy dinner at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in support of the college they both attended, St. Andrews University. A ten-person table at the event is going for $100,000, which includes two VIP tickets that come with a chance to meet the Duke and Duchess. Yes, a chance. If you plan on getting some face time with the royal couple, don't forgot to follow the dress code.
