British royalty meets American royalty! Beyoncé and Jay-Z attended the U.K. premiere of The Lion King on July 14, and they ran into none other than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the red carpet. Oh, to be a fly on the wall during that cozy introduction! Scroll through the gallery below to see their warm meeting during the royal couple’s red carpet debut.
We truly can’t determine who we’re more jealous of in this picture: Meg, 37, for hugging Beyoncé, 37, Beyoncé for hugging Meghan, or 34-year-old Prince Harry for getting to watch it all happen up-close.

Sure, Meghan is royalty and just welcomed her first child, but Beyoncé is the real star of the night. She voices female lion Nala, and has a song on the Lion King soundtrack. Even royalty can’t eclipse that accomplishment!

Of course, we need to take a second to appreciate Beyoncé’s regal gold gown in full. We can’t think of a more appropriate outfit for the evening!

And Meghan is looking positively stunning just months after giving birth to her baby boy Archie. This LBD really highlights her trim figure, and it looks like Harry is just as enamored as we are!
