  • Meghan Markle was spotted at the BRITS last night, but not in the way you think, as she was on her way back from her baby shower in New York.

    Instead, she made an unlikely appearance in Beyonce‘s company when the singer accepted her award via video message.

    She and Jay Z won the award for Best International Group (as the Carters), and stood in front of a portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge to accept it.

    In the oil painting, Meghan wears a crown and old-fashioned pearls, which makes her look like Queen Victoria.

    This was all the more poignant that it was to celebrate Black History Month, and with it the landmark of Meghan being the first bi-racial woman in the Royal family.

    You can watch the full video below:

    Beyonce also congratulated the Royal on her pregnancy, writing, ‘In honor of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas. Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy.’

    We’re pretty sure Meghan will love this.
