Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Meet Dikembe Mutombo

Will and Kate at Brooklyn

Breaking news: Last night, a billion worlds collided.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a. Prince William and Kate Middleton), as part of their three-day trip to America, attended the Nets-Cavaliers NBA game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

“Sounds cool,” you’re probably thinking, “but what does this have to do with me, a Hoya and a lover of Beyoncé and/or Jay-Z?”

Sound the alarm! Kate and Will met both the unofficial American royal couple as well as a remarkable Georgetown alum, Dikembe Mutombo. For those who don’t know, Mutombo was a powerful defensive player for the basketball team back in the late 80s-early 90s, who was also very successful in the NBA. He also starred in a stellar Geico commercial.

And here’s Beyoncé and Jay-Z chatting with the royal couple:

Will and Kate also met LeBron James, who gave them both Cavaliers jerseys.

To round off this exciting and kind of hilarious news, enjoy this video of Dikembe Mutombo sharing popcorn with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Prince William Is Coming to DC


Get ready, Georgetown: The British are coming!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a. Will and Kate) will be making their first ever visit to New York City and (more importantly) Washington, D.C. The royal couple will arrive in New York on Dec. 7, and the Duke will be heading to D.C. on Dec. 8 — sadly without Kate. He’ll be attending an anti-corruption conference at the World Bank as well as attending a lunch there to discuss fighting against illegal trade in ivory.

And their timing — during study days — is perfect for some royal stalking. Unrestricted by class schedules, and unlikely to yet be feeling the true terror of studying for finals, there is no real reason for you to not get down to the World Bank.

One important question still remains: Will Prince George be with them? This is the couple’s first trip to the U.S. since their world-famous son’s birth, and we’re all dying for a glimpse of the cutest royal. The only thing better than having them bring George would be if Harry decided to tag along and make a pit stop at Rhino. We can only dream.
