Hip-Hop Royalty Meets British Royalty!

New York City has been rolling out the red carpet as they host the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Prince William and Kate Middleton made a special trip to the big apple to do some sightseeing of one of America’s touristy cities.

Last night, British royalty had the sports world in a frenzy when they attended a Brooklyn Nets game to watch them take on Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The couple sat alongside NBA Legend Dikembe Mutombo.

And then, after the end of the Third quarter, greatness happened and the internet caught fire. Hip-Hop royalty met British Royalty! Beyoncé and Jay-z went over to greet Prince William and Kate Middleton and boy oh boy did the stadium and internet go wild!

It truly was an epic moment in hip-hop (and American) history. At one point, Hov even put his hand on the Duke’s shoulder (hope that is in proper protocol when meeting British royalty). We can only wonder what the brief conversation was about but, I am sure it is worth millions! After the game, Cambridge’s finest also got to meet the King of Cleveland, Lebron James.

That’s not the only venue the Duke and Duchess will be blessing with their presence. Earlier today, the couple visited the 9/11 Memorial as well as a few youth development centers in New York.

The next stop on the William and Kate’s list is rumored to be the Empire State Building.
