Wills and pregnant Kate are reunited as they attend New York reception alongside Hillary and Chelsea Clinton to recognize the work of wildlife charities* | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
They were separated today as the Duchess of Cambridge met children in Harlem and the Duke spoke with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.

But this evening, Wills and Kate were reunited once more as they joined Hillary and Chelsea Clinton for an official reception in New York City.

The couple, who are visiting America without, Prince George, and are expecting their second child in April, are attending the event at the British Consul General's Residence to recognize the work of The Tusk Trust and other partners of William's charity United for Wildlife.

Upon their arrival shortly after 6pm, they were pictured speaking and laughing with guests, including the Secretary of State and former First Lady, Hillary, and her daughter Chelsea, who gave birth to her own daughter, Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky, on September 26.

It is about "the special relationship" shared by the UK and the U.S.

"Special relationship between the UK and the USA" ... well .. it is about nothing. You, on the other hand, have a right to see it as something special.

The focus of the trip is mostly on wildlife conservation, I think (and there also happens to be a University of St. Andrews dinner tomorrow in New York night). And, of course, a bit of diplomacy thrown in, too. But, as mentioned, the focus seems mostly on wildlife conservation, about which William is passionate, and that's not "nothing." (Members of other royal families have also made short trips to NYC in the past - often there's one specific reason, but other charitable or diplomatic activities get thrown in, too.)

Yes a trip about mental illness awareness and wildlife conservation is a trip about nothing #sarcasm

Kate and William arrived at the Net vs Cavaliers game a little while ago. They had a quick bite to eat and are now about to take their seats.

If you thought People magazine was bad with Princess Kate, ESPN just called Kate- Duchess Kate Middleton.

Twitter #royalvisitusa is hilarious right now. People are just gaga seeing the Cambridges. And the Cambridges seem fairly amused as well.

They are at the basketball game now. Not sitting with Jay Z and Beyoncé are opposite side but they met court side during a break in the game.

British royalty meets pop royalty: William and Kate join Beyoncé and Jay-Z courtside at Brooklyn Nets basketball game | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
They are the stars of British royalty and the pop world respectively.

And tonight, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z, came face-to-face at a Brooklyn Nets game in New York.

As the crowd cheered and took photos, Prince William and his pregnant wife, Kate - who looked chic in a grey coat by US designer Tory Burch, skinny jeans and black heels - were seen greeting the singer and rapper before the second half of the Cleveland Cavaliers game.

They beamed as they exchanged words with the couple, before returning to their courtside seats next to basketball legend, Dikembe Mutombo. Beyoncé and Jay-Z, meanwhile, sat down in their own seats directly opposite them, where they were served an array of snacks.

Before the royal couple's appearance at the game, William and Kate - who is nearly five months' pregnant - met with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and Senior Vice President of Community & Player Programs, Kathleen Behrens, for a photo call.

The Duke, who had spent the day meeting with President Barack Obama, attending a formal reception and addressing a World Bank anti-corruption conference, couldn't resist picking up a basketball as he arrived at an NBA game, joking: 'I think I should be spinning this on my finger.'

The 6ft 2ins royal also craned his neck to meet towering 7ft 2ins star, Dikembe Mutombo, and remarked: 'At last someone who is taller than me!'

He owns part of it. Most of it owned by a Russian billionaire.

Thank you for posting this link, the mayor's wife is clearly a talented writer, she captures in words why Catherine's choice to focus on charities such as this is so very important.
Too cute that the 3-4 yr olds visited thought they were meeting a Princess from the Disney movie Frozen.
I was also pleased that Catherine was holding up so well that she was able to join William when he met the Clintons.
I wonder how familiar the Cambridges are with basketball, is it played in England? I did see that the game was available on my cable for an extra charge, but decided to not bother paying to watch it as I figured they'd mostly show basketball on that NBA channel rather than the Cambridges and while I'm a fan of the Cambridges I'm not dedicated enough to watch a basketball game on the off chance the cameras might show the couple sitting court side occasionally.
