Brooklyn (PIX11) -- The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the star-studded Nets-Cavs game at the Barclays Center, where protesters outside are calling attention to their outrage over the Eric Garner grand jury decision last week.

The royal couple caught a portion of the Nets game,  but outside, hundreds of protesters moved into the Target across the street and held a die-in. They later moved to the mall next door and the subway station.

Meanwhile, the royal couple took in the Nets-Cavs game courtside, arriving about half-way through, and mingling with the assembled elite, including Beyonce and Jay Z, whom they met.

Earlier Monday, Kate attended an event at a Harlem school with first lady Chirlane McCray, while Prince William met with President Barack Obama down in Washington, D.C.  After visiting the Harlem school, Kate visited the British Consul General's Residence for lunch.

On Sunday evening Prince William and Kate arrived in New York City to dozens cheering behind barricades near the Carlyle Hotel.

William and Kate's first visit to New York City will be filled with charity functions, coveted fashion choices and elbow-rubbing with some of the country's most famous and influential people.

The future King and Queen of England's itinerary will include visits to the Empire State Building and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

During his visit to Washington Prince William spoke about his passion for wildlife conservation, saying, “Our collective goal must be to reduce the wildlife trade by making it harder, denying traffickers access to transportation, putting up barriers to their illegal activities and holding people accountable for their actions.”
