Do Kate Middleton and Prince William charge a $1 million as an appearance fee? Having Prince William and Kate Middleton grace your event is worth a lot, but I don’t know if anybody thought it would be worth $1 million. But regardless, the Mail’s royal sources have learned that NBA bosses made a $1 million donation to Will’s and Kate’s charity as an unofficial thank you to them for attending a NBA game, without Prince George!
I mean, celebrities often sell their presence at an event for money, so what’s wrong in Prince William and Kate Middleton doing it? They’re getting a lot of flak for accepting the donation, but it’s not like they’re going to take the money and go build a castle with it. The money’s been donated to charity, so it’s going to a good cause.
Plus, $1 million dollars to Kate and Will probably wouldn’t even consider the most basic renovations at Anmer Hall. They’re royals, remember? $1 million is a huge boon to charities, but as a personal expenditure, Prince William and Kate Middleton have the Kensington coiffers to dip into. Of course, seeing Will and Kate cheer on LeBron James should be entertaining in its own right. The Mail’s source added, “Kate and William are both big sports fans. And although basketball isn’t big in Britain, William has heard of LeBron James… although Kate apparently had no idea who he was!”
Well, they’re lucky that LeBron just happens to be playing in town when Kate and Will are visiting NYC, but the sheer sight of the royals sitting in a private box at a basketball game should be unique enough to draw viewers. There are some royal-obsessed crazies that will do anything for the royals, including tuning into a basketball game for a mere glimpse of them interacting with sports loyalty.
What do you guys think? Would you ever pay $1 million to host Prince William and Kate Middleton at one of your events? Do they do Weddings, Sweet Sixteens and Bar Mitzvahs? If Kim Kardashian could have paid $1 million for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to attend her Kanye West wedding she would have! Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
