It was the moment every royal fan has been hoping for, as the Duchess of Sussex was finally photographed with Beyoncé at the UK premiere of ‘The Lion King’.

The star-studded event at Leicester Square marked their first public event together alongside their husbands, Prince Harry and Jay-Z.

Before taking a seat to watch the live-action remake in which Beyoncé plays the role of Nala, the Duchess of Sussex chatted away to the songstress about family life.

According to royal reporter Emily Andrews, Beyonce greeted Meghan as “my princess” before the duo embraced in a friendly hug which suggested “they’ve all met before”.

Andrews added that Beyoncé cooed over the couple’s two-month-old son, Archie, before revealing: “We love you guys”.

The mother-of-three also revealed Jay-Z’s parenting advice for Prince Harry, telling him: “The best advice I can give you, always find some time for yourself.”

Unsurprisingly, fans from across the globe kept refreshing their social media feed to catch a glimpse of the two ‘queens’ - and were not left disappointed.

“Yes, I’m screaming at the computer. Beyoncé and Meghan hugging, look at our queens embracing one and other!,” one tweeted.
