The live-action remake of the The Lion King, which arrives in cinemas tomorrow, sees the singer star as Nala opposite Donald Glover’s Simba.

Bey and husband Jay Z were in the capital over the weekend to attend the European premiere of the film in Leicester Square. They were joined on the red carpet by the cast including Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner, and music legend Sir Elton John.

Beyoncé looked flawless in a yellow evening gown as she met the Duke and Duchess of Sussex ahead of the premiere. The popstar and Meghan Markle hugged each other as they met for the first time after the musicians paid tribute to Meghan at the Brits this year.

Beyoncé could be heard talking about Meghan and Harry’s newborn son, Archie Harrison. “The baby, so beautiful,” she said. “We love you guys.”

As Prince Harry joined the trio to say hello, embracing Beyoncé and shaking Jay’s hand, he asked, “how are the twins,” in reference to their children, Rumi and Sir. “They are not here. They don’t come on every trip,” replied Beyoncé. “We left them at home. They would loved to have been here.”

Jay Z had some words of wisdom for the prince, adding: “The best advice I can give you, always find time for yourself.”
