Initially, the Duchess was not expected to attend, but changed her plans at the last minute and announced she would, in fact, attend.

Hillary Clinton, the former first lady and US Secretary of State, was there, along with daughter Chelsea. Kate chatted to them about her visit earlier in the day to a children’s center in Harlem and about the benefits of singing to babies.

Before the game started, they met with NBA officials Adam Silver and Dikembe Mutombo for a photo op and then went to a dinner in the boardroom to mark the partnership between the foundation’s United for Wildlife and Coach Core programs and the NBA’s global social responsibility initiative.

During the break between the third and fourth quarters, Jay-Z and Beyoncé who sat on the opposite side of the court came over to say hello to the royals. The celebrity couple used to be part owners of the Brooklyn basketball team.

Additional details on the coat:

‘The Bettina Coat is a textured take on a tailored outerwear style. The material — a cotton blend, woven with bouclé, slubbed and metallic yarns — updates the look of classic tweed with a horizontal-stripe effect and a hint of shine. It has an easy, streamlined cut that is universally flattering and features slit pockets and a row of hidden snaps for a clean finish. Complete with a belted collar, it’s ideal for looking chic and staying warm in cold weather.

There is also a maternity version of J Crew’s ‘Toothpick’ jean in pitch black wash. We are unsure if she is wearing the regular or maternity. On a side note, I was still wearing regular jeans into my sixth month of pregnancy and then I switched to maternity jeans.

J Crew’s skinniest style, the toothpick is lean, cropped and a little bit sexy (and it’s the pair we’re most likely to tear our closet apart looking for).
The fabric is a premium stretch cotton from North Carolina-based Cone Denim®, one of the oldest denim mills in the world.
With its amazing stretch and recovery, jean holds you in and never bags out—even after wearing it all day.
This pair is tailor-made for moms-to-be with discreet elastic panels at each hip and a waistline that dips slightly at the front.
