Piers Morgan to LeBron James: Don't put your sweaty arm on Duchess Kate

Hands off the royalty! TV host Piers Morgan slammed basketball star LeBron James for placing his arm around Kate Middleton during a photoshoot during the Duchess' visit in New York.

"You do not put your arm around the future Queen of England!" the British CNN host, seemingly joking, said on Rachael Ray. "You do not touch a member of the royal family unless they ask you to touch them or extend their hand."

Morgan's message was to the NBA star, who gifted the royal couple a mini jersey bearing Prince George's name.

"LeBron James, you may call yourself King James... you are not a real king," Morgan said. "Prince William is going to be my King, that was his wife - hands off the Duches. Do not touch the royals! They are immortal creatures. If they extend a hand, you gently touch it and say, 'Hello.' You do not put your sweaty arm, after a game of basketball, around a member of the royal family."

Although some royal supporters were not pleased with LeBron's friendly gesture, the royal couple took no offence at all.

"No offense was taken at all," the insider told Us Weekly. "There is no such thing as set protocol. It is always suggested that people act in a way that is comfortable to them. The Duke and Duchess really enjoyed last night's game and were delighted to have the opportunity to meet LeBron James."
