Malaysian royalty met with football royalty at the Emirates stadium in London, England on Dec. 20.

Johor Crown Prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim was invited to watch the quarter-final of the Carabao Cup by none other than England superstar David Beckham.

A North London derby was on display as Arsenal took on Tottenham Hotspur.

Sitting in the stands, the duo watched the game with current Arsenal players Mesut Özil and Sead Kolasinac.

Özil was not included in the squad due to a tactical decision by Arsenal manager Unai Emery.

Unfortunately, Arsenal lost the game 2-0 after goals from Son Heung-min and Dele Alli.

But, at least, the Crown Prince got a personalised Arsenal shirt as a gift from Özil.
