AceShowbiz - Meghan Markle and Prince Harry joined the cast and crew of "The Lion King" at the Disney movie's premiere premiere in London on Sunday, July 14. This public outing marks the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's first red carpet appearance following their wedding in May 2018.
For the star-studded event, Meghan opted for a simple yet classy look in a black midi dress from Jason Wu that featured sheer sleeves. She styled her hair in clean bun and completed her fashion with Aquazzura heels and a Gucci clutch. Meanwhile, Prince Harry looked dapper as ever in a black tuxedo.
The two turned heads as they made an entrance by holding hands as they flashed their biggest smiles.
One thing that was worth to note during the event was a historical encounter between Meghan and Beyonce Knowles, who lends her voice for Nala in the live-action revamp of the 1994 original Disney film. In one of the photos that circulated online, Meghan and husband Harry were seen having a nice conversation with the pop Queen and her rapper husband Jay-Z.
According to Daily Mail, the two power couples were having lots of "baby chat." Beyonce, who looked gorgeous in a gold ensemble, was also reportedly heard referring the Sussexes' baby Archie as "beautiful."
The Duchess then asked how Beyonce and Jay-Z's twins are doing, to which the "Lemonade" hitmaker responded, "They are not here. They don't come on every trip. We left them at home. They would loved to have been here." When asked about the encounter, Beyonce told the site, "They are sooo sweet," while smiling broadly.
Also attending the premiere were cast members Seth Rogen, who voices Pumbaa, Billie Eichner, who voices Timon, as well as Florence Kasumba who lends her voice for Shenzi. The other celebrities who graced the red carpet for the premiere of the highly-anticipated flick were Elton John, Vin Diesel and Nathalie Emanuel among others.
