The Prince and his wife will be in attendance in the game between Cavaliers and Brooklyn Nets on Monday night.

Prince William and his wife Duchess Kate Middleton will be in attendance on Monday when Lebron James features for Cleveland Cavaliers against Brooklyn Nets on Monday night.

James, who himself is nicknamed ‘King’ is looking forward to meeting the real royal family

"It's an honour... It's a huge honour. The stuff that you read about, people like them are only in books growing up. To hear that they're coming to town to see me play and they want to see me do what I do best, it's a huge honour.

"They are going to be at the game so hopefully I get the opportunity to interact with them a little bit. We'll see what happens."

Fellow Cavaliers teammate Kyrie and coach David Blatt also expressed in meeting the Prince and the Duchess

"It will be great to see them in person.

"I mean, for me, seeing celebrities in person is awesome. I don't really know too much about them, but they're celebrities in our world so I guess it's great to see them," Cavaliers guard, Irvine said

The coach Blatt added: "First of all every fan that comes to a game is appreciated and is part of our good fortune.

"Obviously having people from different parts of the world and different parts of life that are recognisable to other people I think is great. It shows they love the game of basketball and we're all fortunate for that, too."
