We knew Beyoncé was a fan of Meghan Markle – remember Queen Bey's "royal portrait" of the Duchess of Sussex, complete with tiara? – but we got to witness first hand that the feeling was definitely mutual when pop royalty met real-life royalty on the red carpet of the European premiere of The Lion King on Sunday night. Joined by their respective husbands Prince Harry and Jay-Z, two of the world's highest-profile women bonded over babies – Bey has three children, Blue Ivy, Rumi and Sir, while the Duchess welcomed Archie Harrison in May – and even dad Harry got some parenting tips from hip hop mogul Jay-Z.
Beyoncé, of course, voices the character of Nala in the Disney live-action reboot which had its London screening at Leicester Square. Scroll through to see her fun night out with Jay and the Sussexes!
