Seriously, can the Disney live action remake The Lion King Ever more iconic? Not only does it have a star-studded cast and revamped versions of the beloved songs of the 1994 animated film, it produced the first encounter between Beyoncé and Meghan Markle. (!!!)
It's okay. On July 14, the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex attended the premiere at U.K. of The Lion King, where they got involved with the movie's fans and actors before turning inward for a preview of the next movie. When Markle and Queen Bey (also known as Nala) met, they could not stop smiling. Just wait until you see the video of the sweet moment.
Beyoncé and the Duchess were happy to see each other.
A video uploaded to Twitter by The Daily Mail's Rebecca English shows Markle walking on the golden carpet in a black dress with transparent sleeves. When she approached Beyoncé, the Lemonade The singer, who wore a golden dress, smiled.
They shared a long hug and apparently hit him immediately. Reportedly, Beyoncé told Markle that her newborn son, Archie Harrison, is "so beautiful," and that She loves[s] his family." Then, reportedly, Markle asked Bey for some deets with his 2-year-old twins, Sir and Rumi Carter. Aww!
After conversing for more than a few seconds, the singer can be heard to thank the Duchess, presumably for appearing to support the film.
Beyoncé and Markle are fans of each other
Beyoncé put her fan in full screen in February when she used a portrait of the Duchess at the bottom of her BRIT acceptance video.
Artist Tim O & # 39; Brien told OprahMag.com that the tribute was an "ode" for the video "Apesh * t" by Beyoncé and JAY-Z, which shows the couple posing in front of the Mona Lisa. "I think that choosing a person of color in the royal family, at the Brit Awards, instead of the Mona Lisa was brilliant … it was the perfect fit," he explained.
According to Elle, the homage shocked the Duchess. When his makeup artist, Daniel Martin, sent him the photo, Markle sent him a text message with a "big eye emoji".
It's been a busy time for Markle
Markle has been attending a lot of sporting events, such as Wimbledon, where she supported her best friend Serena Williams.
She and Prince Harry also met with close relatives and friends on July 6 for the baptism of the baby Archie. Approximately 25 people were able to see how the Archbishop of Canterbury sprayed Archie's forehead with water from the Jordan River.
The Sussex chose to have the ceremony in the private chapel of Queen Elizabeth, so the fans did not see any important moment. But they did take pictures of the event to the public.
"This is a beautiful milestone, and they are excited to share it as a family first, and then with the world," a source told People.
With so much on her plate, it's a wonder that the Duchess has achieved The Lion King premiere. But we're glad you did it. Maybe we'll see more pictures of Markle and Beyoncé soon.
