Stop Everything: Meghan Markle and Beyoncé Just Hugged It Out on ‘The Lion King’ Red Carpet
Can you feel the love tonight?
The Duchess of Sussex sure can, because she just got a hug from Beyoncé (and received parenting advice!) on the red carpet in London at The Lion King U.K. premiere (and, yes, we're absolutely beside ourselves over these two worlds colliding, too).
Meghan Markle, wearing a stunning black Jason Wu gown with sheer sleeves and slingback Aquazzura heels, accompanied Prince Harry to the star-studded event, and met Beyoncé and Jay-Z as they walked the red carpet.
Markle and Beyoncé, who voices lioness Nala in the Disney film, shared a warm embrace before the "Single Ladies" singer offered parenting advice to both Markle and Harry.
Queen Bey wore a custom bright gold pleated metallic gown with thigh-high slit by Cong Tri. She was overheard telling the duchess that baby Archie is "so beautiful. We love you guys," according to royal correspondent Rebecca English of The Daily Mail. (Did Beyoncé just fangirl over Markle? We can't handle this, you guys.)
"Congratulations on the birth of your baby," Jay-Z told Harry, and nodded toward Meghan. "The best advice I can give you, always find some time for yourself," he told the duke and duchess. Wise words, Jay.

American music royalty meeting (and fangirling over) actual British royalty? Hakuna matata: It means "best day ever."
