It will be a royal affair on Monday, Dec. 8, when Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge take a break from their imperial duties to catch an NBA game. As Prince William and Kate Middleton tour the States on a three-day trip, which starts on Sunday, Dec. 7, one of their outings will involve sitting on the sidelines at the Barclays Center in New York.
The Royal Palace announced Friday that the royal couple will be watching the Brooklyn Nets take on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers at 7:30 on Dec. 8 game as they simultaneously speak about conservation efforts with Jay Z, a former part-owner of the Barclays Center. Kate and Will reportedly will be discussing a proposed collaboration between the NBA and Prince William’s foundation, United for Wildlife, a group that supports conservation in Africa.
“William is passionate about protecting elephants and rhinos from being poached as his mother was about banning land mines,” a source told the New York Post.
And if you want to get in on the rhino-saving action along with watching the game alongside Britain’s finest, the ball is totally in your court – that is, if you have a couple of extra bucks to shell out this holiday season. Prices to watch the NBA game vary from $75.73 to $5,077.07. (You can check out all the available tickets HERE.)
For those looking to get up-close and personal with Prince George’s parents, here are the options available to you:
The sections that surround the court (7, 8, 9, 25, 24 and 23) are the priciest tickets to score -- we’re talking anywhere from $383 to $5,000-- but they will provide a front row seat at sneaking a peek at the royal couple. However, if you’re not looking to spend an arm and a leg on tickets, many seats higher up are still available under the $100 mark.
Barclays Center is located at 620 Atlantic Ave. (corner of Atlantic Ave. and Flatbush Ave.) in Brooklyn.
