United for Wildlife already has Yao Ming as an ambassador. With the new collaboration with the NBA maybe they are getting Lebron too. The photos from after the game should be fun. Lebron is going to make William and Kate look tiny.

Yeah I know they have met President Obama & First Lady Mrs. Obama, but I just thought it would've been nice for them to go to the White House and perhaps have dinner or lunch. It would've been great. Perhaps in the future though.

Anyway, sounds like William and Kate will be VERY busy for those three days. I'm looking forward to it. They will get massive airtime and we will see photos of every outfit Kate wears, along with William's collection of navy blue suits!

Oh the horror. LOL. In our social media dense world, what does it matter to anyone but the press that the press get something first.

Oh and, window washers across New York have been asked to not dangle helplessly during the visit.

I think that if there was a tie in between United for Wildlife and/or the White House and the Obamas, it could have possibly been scheduled to fit in with the trip. IIRC, on one of Harry's tours of the US, he met with Michelle Obama for a luncheon event I believe. It tied in with his purpose of being there.

I agree, if there was a link between the Obama's and United for Wildlife, they probably would have gone over to the White House.

It's going to be good to see them here in the US again. Imagine how crazy it would be if they came during the summer with Prince George for a tour.

Don't know if my poor heart could take that!! Seriously though, I wish William dressed as well as his father. Charles has always had a great collection of suits. I love the checks and plaids he wears. I remember back when he was married to Diana and all the American news people would go on and on about HER clothes, one reporter mentioned on-air that he thought Charles was the best dresser of the two and I agreed. He's still a pretty snazzy dresser, IMO.

LeBron James greet Prince William and Kate Middleton at NBA match in New York | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Basketball bosses are 'beside themselves with excitement' at Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge attending an NBA game, MailOnline has learned.

The Duke and Duchess will watch the Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Brooklyn Nets during their three-day visit to New York next month.

The decision by the couple to attend the match means they should be able to watch LeBron James, currently America's biggest sports star, in action.

NBA brass believe that the image of the royal couple at the match at Brooklyn's Barclays Center will be shown around the world, helping the sport gain new fans.

This should be a fun trip but very busy for them. I bet little George will go with his nanny to Bucklebury.
