Prince William And Kate Middleton Met Jay Z And Beyonce And The Internet Collectively Exploded

When British royalty and rap royalty collide.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited New York City today (December 8), attending a Brooklyn Nets game at the Barclays Center where LeBron James and his fellow players were quietly supporting the Eric Garner protesters.

But the British royalty managed to turn a few heads too, and the stadium crowd watched in hope that something big would go down. Don't worry, Beyonce and Jay Z made sure that it did.
