Last night, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Cavaliers-Nets game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, for their first ever NBA game.
LeBron — the closest thing we have to a monarch in this country, which has been free from #tyranny since 1776, mind you — caught up with them afterward to talk about Game of Thrones or something, we’re not sure.
Turns out, Bron messed up putting his arm around Kate.
[Daily Mail] Etiquette expert William Hanson told MailOnline that although the Duchess is unlikely to give Mr James the cold shoulder, he still should have kept his arm away from her.
He said: ‘Although I am sure the Duchess of Cambridge won’t have worried about it, Mr James should not have put his arm around her.
‘Americans are much more tactile than we Brits and this is another example of an American being too touchy feely with British royalty. You’d have think they’d have learned by now.’
Guys, relax. Can’t you just repress such an “egregious violation of protocol” like you do with the rest of your feelings?
