They are the stars of British royalty and the pop world respectively.

And tonight, the Duke and Duchess of?Cambridge, and Beyonc? 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 U.S. designer Tory Burch, skinny jeans and black heels ? were seen greeting the singer and rapper during the second half of the?game against the?Cleveland Cavaliers.

They beamed as they exchanged words with the couple, before returning to their courtside seats next to basketball legend, Dikembe Mutombo, where they were handed a box of popcorn and bottles of water. Beyonc? and Jay-Z, meanwhile, sat down in their own seats directly opposite them.

Kensington Place courtiers had previously arranged with NBA officials that the two couples would meet during the third and fourth quarters of the game at the Barclays Center, which also starred basketball royalty:?the Cavaliers? LeBron James, dubbed ?King James?.

And after the Cavaliers trounced the Nets 110-88, the royal couple were led backstage to meet the sport?s biggest superstar.?Down in the Vaults, a basement hospitality suite, they were introduced to James, who had brought them a gift-wrapped box of cup cakes from his hometown, Akron, Ohio.

It had been a day of firsts for the royal couple and they declared themselves impressed by their first NBA game. ?It was good, really good. Our first time,? the Prince told the 6ft 8in 29-year-old star after a day of contrasts. ?I went to the White House for the first time. It was quite daunting.?
