American hip-hop royalty met actual British royalty  in Brooklyn at the Nets-Cavaliers game, when the king of rap Jay Z and “Queen” Beyonce greeted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton!

During a short time-out, Beyonce and Jay Z got out of their courtside seats to walk across the floor, in order to greet their guests from across the pond. As you can imagine, the meeting between the two parties sparked a frenzy in the stadium, as security kept a close watch over the swarming crowd of camera phones and recording equipment. Coincidentally (or maybe not so), Bey‘s “Crazy In Love” single was also heard dominating the arena speakers at that same moment. Watch a clip of the royal exchange below, and peep the photos! Lebron James definitely broke protocol by placing his arm around Duchess Kate, but she was all smiles, especially after being presented with a mini jersey for the couple’s new baby boy. Prince William even had fun at the game, doing his best Jay Z “Dirt Off Your Shoulders” pose with a fan.
