If you’re wandering around the Barclay’s Center this weekend and see an enormous crowd of people waving the Union Jack, then, first, run, and second, know that you have just stumbled upon the inaugural New York City visit of Prince William and Kate Middleton. As if you didn’t have enough to worry about: the British are invading again.
Per the New York Times, the two will arrive this weekend for a three-day visit, staying at an (of course) undisclosed Manhattan hotel, and meeting with various people. They’ll meet with Mayor De Blasio’s wife Chirlane McCray, attend various functions, pop down to Washington for a quick hello at the White House, and then hang out at the Nets game on Monday. Will Beyonce and Jay Z hang out with them? Our completely unsubstantiated guess is definitely.
