Prince William and Kate are on a 3-day trip to New York and took the time to attend an NBA game in Brooklyn, NY between the Brooklyn Nets and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Duke and Duchess met Beyoncé Knowles, also known as queen Bey, and her husband Jay Z at the basketball game.

The two couples shook hands upon meeting and were seen chatting amiably, William and Kate both sporting huge smiles as they mingled with the pop star and rapper.

The pair arrived in the first half of the game, but didn’t reach their courtside seats until the third quarter where they were sitting next to NBA legend Dikembe Mutombo.

They received quite the welcome at the Barclays Center when they were introduced to the crowds on the scoreboard – a moment which William embraced by waving to the camera.
