Meghan Markle and Beyoncé nearly broke the Internet when they finally met at London’s premiere of The Lion King along with their husbands, Prince Harry and Jay-Z. Photos of the two powerful women embracing and conversing on the red carpet quickly spread, showing the singer glowing in a golden Cong Tri gown and the Duchess of Sussex looking regal in a black Jason Wu dress.
But what exactly did they talk about? Duchess Meghan and Queen Bey kept the conversation topics simple: They gushed over each other and chatted about their kids.
When they first went in for a hug, lip-reading fans believe Beyoncé called Meghan “my princess,” which is probably the highest honor anyone could receive.

The superstar was also heard saying “the baby, so beautiful,” referring to Harry and Meghan’s two-month-old son, Archie. “We love you guys,” she later added. The duchess held her hand and thanked her right before her husband joined the discussion.
“You guys are busy,” the Duke of Sussex said to the Carters, who just attended the Lion King premiere in L.A. as Beyoncé promoted her role as Nala in the Disney remake. “A little bit,” she responded with a nod. “No more busy than you guys.” Jay-Z then congratulated the new dad on the baby.
Harry had a proud parent moment as he talked about how Archie can now hold his neck up, which he said is “so exciting.” (It’s the little things!) At one point, he was seen rubbing Meghan’s back during the exchange.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z couldn’t stop smiling at the royal couple. The rapper and mogul reportedly told the first-time parents to “always find time for yourself,” according to royal correspondent Rebecca English of Daily Mail.
Harry also asked the entertainers about their two-year-old twins, Rumi and Sir. “They are not here. They don’t come on every trip,” Beyoncé answered, per English. “We left them at home. They would loved to have been here.”
This isn’t the Carters’ first time gushing over the Duchess of Sussex. In February, they filmed their BRIT Awards acceptance video in front of a portrait of the duchess painted by artist Tim O’Brien. Beyoncé also paid a special tribute to Meghan on her website in honor of Black History Month.
