Stunned by their courtside appearance a third chimed: "[The] Prince of Wales and the Princess of Wales would be better served remaining in residence and watching the @sixers and future Basketball Hall of Famer @JoelEmbiid on television tonight."

Princess Kate was the epitome of elegance in a vintage blue tweed jacket by Chanel which she paired with black dress pants and suede heels. As for accessories, the mum-of-three elevated her sleek outfit with a gold link necklace and matching statement earrings.

William, 40, meanwhile, opted for a laidback look comprising a light wash denim shirt, and a smart navy suit.
