Prince Charles, Jamie Lee Curtis, America Ferrera planning visit to DC

Is there such a thing as celebrity overload in a buttoned-up, wonky city like Washington? Judging by the roster of Hollywood visitors planning to arrive Tuesday, the answer is “no way.”

Hot on the heels of appearances by the likes of Donald Trump, Scarlett Johansson and Rosario Dawson at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, ITK is having trouble keeping up with the sheer number of famous faces.

Chief among them is newly minted father-in-law, His Royal Highness Charles, Prince of Wales, who will be in Washington from Tuesday to Thursday. The ardent environmentalist will visit President Obama at the White House and speak at a Georgetown University conference on sustainable agriculture.

Actors Hill Harper, America Ferrera and Aimee Garcia will be at the Newseum on Tuesday to launch a joint project with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting aimed at reducing high school dropout rates.

That’s the same day that actress Jamie Lee Curtis will team up with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for an event at the Shakespeare Theatre marking National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day.

Wait, did you say Tuesday? Because model and frequent visitor to Capitol Hill Christy Turlington Burns will launch a U.N. program for maternal health with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the State Department.

As if that wasn’t enough, actress and model Bo Derek will join actors John Corbett and Ed Begley Jr. at a Climate Leadership gala that night at the Ronald Reagan Building.

None of the celebs are officially planning a visit to Capitol Hill as of yet, but check The Hill’s Washington Scene website for updated celebrity schedules.
