LeBron James Got A Little Too Friendly With Kate Middleton


Posted on

During the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's visit to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last night, LeBron James broke a long-established rule of "royal protocol" that prohibits anyone from kissing or touching members of the royal family.

James had just finished playing against the Brooklyn Nets when he put his arm around Kate to pose for a photograph.


First Lady Michelle Obama got friendly with Queen Elizabeth during a G20 summit reception in London in 2009.

But in this instance the Queen herself initiated the hug, obviously captivated by her new BFF.
