Don’t Do That! LeBron James Breaks Protocol With Duchess Of Cambridge [PHOTO]

share on:

LeBron James might be the world’s greatest basketball player, but he still has to respect himself when he meets royalty.

Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton attended the Cleveland Cavaliers – Brooklyn Nets game as part of their vacation, and watched LeBron be a beast.

After the game, the couple took a photo with James, who broke protocol by putting his arm around the Duchess of Cambridge.

According to the BBC,

“When meeting a royal, there are rules about who can speak first, where to look, what to call them, how you should stand and when you should sit.”

The incident echoed a similar incident in 2009 when Michelle Obama also broke protocol by hugging Queen Elizabeth.

  1. The official website of the British Monarchy advises as follows:

    ‘There are no obligatory codes of behavior when meeting The Queen or a member of the Royal Family, but many people wish to observe the traditional forms,’

    ‘For men this is a neck bow (from the head only) whilst women do a small curtsy. Other people prefer simply to shake hands in the usual way.’

    Who was really offended? A bunch of tabloid editors out of the UK… never mind, one can only feel pity for Beyonce who for once wasn’t the center of attention….
