D.C. sports fans' favorite Pole, Marcin Gortat got to meet with British royalty on Monday.
In a brief conversation, the 6'11" Wizards center met with Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge. The two were able to talk at a Polish Garden Party celebrating the Queen of the United Kingdom's birthday.
Hosted in Warsaw, Poland, the event was intended to celebrate the growing relationship between the UK and Poland, while honoring Queen Elizabeth. Over 600 special guests were in attendance, varying from both the entertainment and business worlds.
According to Gortat's Twitter account, he was able to shake his hand and talk with the prince for a few minutes.

Delving back into the sports world, Gortat did inquire on Prince William's preferred Premier League football club, either Manchester United or Chelsea F.C. (the two most popular soccer clubs in the world). The Duke responded with his Championship League team, Aston Villa.
For non-European football fans, it is pretty well known which team Prince William supports. A quick Google search might have helped the center in this situation.
Just a hint for Gortat, if he were to ever meet Prince Harry, his favorite team is Arsenal.
