Carmelo Anthony meets Prince Harry

Wednesday January 14th, 2015

First it was Prince William and Kate visiting the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now we get New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony meeting Prince Harry at St. James Place. Their encounter came during a reception on Wednesday benefiting the British "Coach Core" program, an academy that produces coaches.

As you would expect, Prince Harry looked like a little kid next to Anthony. 

Anthony presented Prince Harry, who is fourth in line to the throne, with a personalized jersey and shoe. These are the escapades you get to enjoy while awaiting likely knee surgery.

In return, Prince Harry apparently motivated Anthony to suit up for Thursday's game in London against the Milwaukee Bucks.
