Beyoncé and Jay Z Welcome Prince William and Kate Middleton to Brooklyn

Jay Z Beyonce Kate William

British royalty and music royalty were introduced to each other when Prince William and Kate Middleton met Beyonce and Jay Z on Monday night during the Cleveland Cavaliers game against the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who are in New York for a three-day U.S. tour, took seats courtside a few minutes into the game’s third quarter and between the third and fourth quarters, Jay Z and Beyoncé were led over the royal couple. The four shook hands during the brief introduction and engaged in small talk.

As if a welcome from the hip-hop power couple wasn’t enough, the Prince William and Kate also met “King” LeBron James after the game. The Cavaliers star gifted them with an adult  jersey that read “Cambridge” and a tiny jersey with “George” on the back for their son.

Feeling honored to have met the couple, the NBA star took to social media to express his excitement.

“Wow what an Honor!” he wrote. “This game has brought me so much and I’ll never take it for granted! The King [LeBron]. Duke & Duchess. #Royalty #StriveForGreatness #RWTW #LRMR #Klutch.”
