Music royalty collided with real royalty this weekend as Beyoncé and Jay-Z were finally introduced to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The four met at The Lion King premiere in London’s Leicester Square on Sunday, 14 July.
Unusually, Beyoncé and Jay-Z arrived on the red carpet after Harry and Meghan (traditionally the royals arrive last to any big event), but the group met inside the cinema – a moment that was recorded and shared on social media.
The Duchess warmly hugged both stars, breaking royal protocol – normally members of the public aren’t permitted to touch members of the royal family. However, understandably, Meghan didn’t miss an opportunity to embrace Beyoncé.
