Ever wonder what happens when two extremely popular celebrities meet up at an event? What do they even talk about with each other?
Are they each other’s fans? These are just some of the pressing questions in our minds, and now we finally have the answer to them, thanks to the efforts of vigilant journalists who were recording each and every word being uttered by Beyonce and Meghan Markle when they met each other at the premiere of The Lion King remake.
As you probably know, meeting the royals is not as straightforward as one might expect. Prior to the meeting, a set of protocols are communicated to you, intimating you of all the etiquette you are expected to display when meeting with members of the British royal family.
The same protocols had also been communicated with those who were supposed to greet the royals, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as they attended the premiere of The Lion King in London.
Of course, one of the cast members in the film was Beyonce, and hence she was also present at the event with her husband, Jay-Z. Having read the protocol which needed to be followed when greeting the royals, reportedly Beyonce had become a bit nervous about meeting them because she did not want to break any protocols.
Another person to have reported nervousness about meeting the Prince and Markle was Billy Eichner who, while speaking on the Jimmy Kimmel show, revealed that every member of the cast who was expected to meet the royals had been jittery in the moments leading up to their meeting.
According to Eichner, the intensity of the communication highlighting the importance of adhering to the protocol was so much that everyone had become nervous.
A Good Experience
Once the Duke and Duchess arrived and met with the cast members, all the nervousness subsided as everyone recognized the kind demeanor with which the royals interacted with everyone. Eichner called the royals lovely people who were very down to earth as well. Beyonce was also heard calling them very sweet.
The conversation between Beyonce and Markle instantly became news because everyone wanted to know what the two celebrities had talked about, a natural demand considering the fact that both of them are extremely famous and we don’t get to see such interactions on a daily basis.
According to media reports, in addition to the greetings, Beyonce had referred to Meghan’s newborn child, Archie Harrison, as a beautiful baby, and also expressed how much she, along with her husband, loved the two of them.
Then, Jay-Z stepped into the conversation and offered the new parents some advice, probably stemming from his own experience as a father, telling the royals that taking out time for their own selves was essential to making parenthood work in a healthy manner.
Overall, their interaction went smoothly and the premiere was a huge success, although some media outlets have reported that perhaps some protocols had been violated when the musicians met the royals.
