Beyoncé’s nickname for Meghan Markle is actually just perfect

Meghan Markle

How sweet is this?

So last weekend, we all nearly fainted when real royalty and music royalty came together.

Yep, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, met Beyoncé and Jay Z at the premiere for The Lion King.

And the pictures brought us intense joy.

When Meghan and Queen Bey came face to face, they hugged, and Beyoncé greeted calling her “my princess”.

Isn’t that just the most perfect nickname?

Oh, Prince Harry and Jay Z, Beyonce’s husband, were also in attendance, but really, we were here for Meg and Bey.

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended #TheLionKing European premiere in London at the Odeon Theatre. In celebration of the film’s release, The Walt Disney Company announced #ProtectThePride, a global conservation campaign to support efforts protecting the rapidly diminishing lion population across Africa. As a part of their commitment to this cause, Disney also made a donation to The Duke of Sussex’s upcoming environment & community initiative which will be formally announced this autumn. The Duke and Duchess are committed to advancing conservation efforts across Africa and around the world, and working with communities to ensure a sustainable future for the planet. This evening Their Royal Highnesses had the pleasure of meeting the cast and creative team behind the film, as well as supporters of @africanparksnetwork, of which The Duke is President.

It’s no secret that Beyonce and Jay Z have been big fans of the Duchess.

Beyonce’s adoration for the Duchess first came to light when she and Jay Z accepted a BRIT Award back in February.

The famous pair accepted the award via a video link, with a painting of Meghan wearing a crown behind them.


In fact, they even bowed to the painting, while also thanking organisers for the award.

So yeah, meeting Meghan and The Lion King event was probably a pretty big deal for them.

During the meeting, Bey congratulated Meghan Markle on the birth of her new son, Archie.

Jay Z also offered the royal some pretty solid parenting advice, saying:

“The best advice I can give you, always find some time for yourself”.
