LeBron James broke ‘royal protocol’ by wrapping arm around Kate Middleton during photo op with duchess...


British media was aghast that King James would dare touch her royal highness as he placed his arm across the shoulder of the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge for about 20 seconds as a photo was arranged. William and Kate met with the NBA's version of royalty minutes after his Cavaliers drubbed the Nets in Brooklyn on Monday. Source


So, apparently 'King' James has sent Britain into a tizzy by placing his arms around Kate Middleton during a photo session after the Cavaliers-Nets game in New York last night. It appears the rule with royalty is 'do not touch them until they touch themselves first' or some such ridiculousness. It also seems Americans are too 'touchy feely' for some of our friends who witnessed this 'appalling' and 'uncomfortable' spectacle.

Hey, news flash. Kate Middleton is just an average person who puts her $700 designer jeans on the same way I do, with the help of a personal assistant.

It's custom in the UK to not touch royals. Michelle Obama caused a scandal when Obama was first elected because she touched Queen Elizabeth. Just because we don't do it that way in the USA doesn't mean their customs and rules shouldn't be respected. If you ever find yourself around a royal: no touch. It's very rude.

These jerks can go eff themselves. Their entire world is delusional. They are elitist who behind private doors talk down about commoners. They aren't royal, they are royal a-holes.

I feel as well that it is ridiculous. She is a human being, only possessing an illusion of power, propped up by wealth.

Bah. They were lucky it was just him. Forget her shoulder, my hand would have been elsewhere.

This isnt the UK, they aren't royal here. Just people. When in the USA their rules don't apply.

On the other side of the token - in America it is not custom to not touch people of power. They shouldn't come to America and assume everyone understands their obscure code of conduct.

You may not realise it, but her in The U.K. putting your arm around ANY WOMEN without being invited to do so , is regarded as Sexual Harassment.

Funny the press I have seen states that the royal couple are moving forward with the times and no one minded one bit.

What are the specific rules revolving around Dear Leader? (other than the obvious safety protocols)

I agree. It think it is comical that there are even people still around considered 'royal'.

That's why Obama wasn't invited to The Royal Wedding a couple of years ago.

You just can't have Yanks at High Society Functions.
