Jumbo screens at the Barclays Center captured the British royals exchanging pleasantries courtside while they watched the Cleveland Cavaliers defeat the Brooklyn Nets 110-88 late Monday.

Monday was the first full day in the U.S. for Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, who are spending a brief, but jam-packed visit to the United States. Today the royal couple is scheduled to visit one of New York City's most somber sites, the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum.
