Ahead of the 2019 Cricket World Cup, captains of all ten teams participating in the tournament were invited for a gathering at the iconic Buckingham Palace in London.

The ten captains including India’s Virat Kohli met Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Harry before the opening ceremony of the tournament on Wednesday.

Photographs of the captains shaking hands with the queen in the 1844 room in the palace were shared on social media soon after the interaction. While one photograph showed the queen laughing in interaction with Kohli and English captain Eoin Morgan. In another photo, the queen was seen seated with all the competing captains.

While some social media users wondered what was being talked about, others termed the interaction between Kohli and Queen Elizabeth II as a king meeting a queen.

Others decided to dub Kohli as the ‘Kohinoor

Whether the Kohinoor diamond, which was confiscated by the British in the 19th century, returns to India remains in doubt. But there is a chance Virat Kohli and the Indian team comes back to India with the Cricket World Cup trophy from England.

India plays its first game in the competition on June 5 against South Africa. India last won the competition in 2011 on home soil and are one of the favorites to go on and win the competition this year.
