  • ICYMI Meghan Markle met Beyonce yesterday at the UK premiere for The Lion King in London. Despite both having prominent careers in America, they hadn’t met before, and quickly bonded over their children, with the singer apparently saying Archie was ‘so beautiful’.

    But it turns out Beyonce wasn’t the only celeb dishing out compliments to the Duchess, who was accompanied by Prince Harry on the red carpet.

    After chatting to the Carters, the royal couple moved onto Sir Elton John, who couldn’t help but compliment Meghan on her outfit, and in particular, her shoes.

    She wore a black satin Jason Wu midi dress which featured a sheer neckline and sleeves, and accessorised with Nikos Koulis  stud earrings and a Gucci clutch.

    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.

    On her feet were a pair of black satin Aquazurra, adorned with diamante straps at the back.

    Elton was overheard saying, ‘I’m admiring your shoes’, though to be fair, his jazzy flats were also pretty on point.

    Meanwhile, Prince Harry couldn’t get enough of Pharrell (who collaborated on the soundtrack) and shorts and tuxedo jacket combo, saying, ‘I love the look’.
