It's finally happened.

The worlds of British and American royalty collided last night when The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were afforded the opportunity to meet actual Jay-Z and Beyoncé at a Nets game.

The Carters can frequently be found courtside at Nets games, but it was the young royals who stood out from the crowd. 

As soon as it became apparent that there were two sets of royals in the house, a meet and greet was set up, spawning the weirdest handshake in human history.


Will, who looked quite enamoured with Jay-Z, was likely waiting for some alone time with the rapper so he could spit a few bars from "The Blueprint" and land himself a feature on the next "Watch The Throne" album. 

Kate and Will didn’t just meet the Carters though. They also got some one-on-one time with Lebron (also known as King James) who had a custom Cavaliers jersey made for baby George. 

Their stateside trip has been a whirlwind. Will even sat down with President Obama to tell a super funny joke, apparently. 

Watch the video of the encounter and try and guess what the topic of conversation could have possibly been between these royals.
