- Beyoncé met Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for the first time during the premiere of The Lion King.
- Beyoncé could be seen covering the slit in her dress during the meeting.
Where were you on the historic day Beyoncé and Meghan Markle met for the first time? I was on my couch contemplating whether I should make the effort to get dressed for the day (answer: no), and watching these two legends exchange pleasantries at The Lion King premiere was truly a *moment*.
You’ve probably seen the video of Bey and Meghan meeting a thousand times by now (just me? K.), but did you notice that Beyoncé pulled off a last-minute fashion hack to greet the duke and duchess?
Queen Bey wore a stunning gold gown to The Lion King, which featured a mile-high leg slit. See?
But while meeting Meghan and Harry, Beyoncé used her purse to hold the leg slit closed during the entire interaction:

This move was presumably to keep things a little more low-key while chatting to casual royalty, but for what it’s worth, Meghan has been known to rock a leg slit in her day (while on royal tour, no less). Nothing wrong with a little thigh, mmmkay?
P.S. If you’re wondering what Beyoncé and Meghan are saying to each other in this video, Bey starts things off by calling Meg “my princess” (ahhh) and then says her “baby is so beautiful.” MY HEART.
