Meghan Markle will join Prince Harry on The Lion King red carpet alongside Beyonce and fans are already having a meltdown about it – The Sun
MEGHAN Markle is set to attend the Lion King premiere in London on Sunday alongside husband Prince Harry.
Buckingham Palace has confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will join the likes of Beyonce at Leicester Square in support of the live-action remake of the Disney classic.
The palace said that newborn baby Archie would not be joining his parents at the event, which is being held in support of the conservation and communities work of Prince Harry.
This will be the sixth time we have seen Meghan Markle since she gave birth to Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on May 6.
Yesterday, the new mum was seen holding her two-month-old son at the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day, just over half way into her three-month maternity leave period.
At the Lion King premiere, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will meet with cast and crewmembers, before watching the new film.
Beyonce, who is tipped for an Oscar for her Lion King song Spirit, is also rumoured to be attending the London premiere on Sunday.
Fans have already gone into meltdown at the news that the Meghan will be on the same red carpet as Beyonce, following the Lemonade singer giving her a shoutout when she won a Brit award in February.
As they couldn't accept the award in person, the Carters sent a video acceptance speech of them recreating their Apes*** music video.
But instead of hanging out with the Mona Lisa painting in the Louvre museum in Paris, the couple replaced the Leonardo da Vinci artwork with a stunning painting of Meghan Markle herself.
Meghan's make-up artist Daniel Martin said the duchess had seen the painting and sent him big eye emojis in response.
After accepting the award, Beyonce revealed that they had chosen to honour Meghan in honour of Black History Month.
The star-studded movie seeks to bring the 1994 classic to life, and stars the likes of Beyonce as Nala, Donald Glover as Simba, James Earl Jones, who reprising his role as Mufasa from the 1994 film, and comics Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen as Timon and Pumbaa.
Alongside the release of the film, The Walt Disney Company has announced the launch of a global conversation campaign called Protect the Pride.
This seeks to raise awareness for the dwindling population of lions across Africa, and will be supported by the Royal Foundation.
Prince Harry has taken a keen interest in African conservation projects over the years, and supports a number of wildlife and community projects.
When he left the army in 2015, he spent three months working on a number of projects in Namibia, Tanzania, South Africa and Botswana.
Later this year, Prince Harry and Meghan are to take a royal tour to South Africa, and it is thought baby Archie will be brought along for the trip.
The Duke of Sussex will also visit Angola and Malawi at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and undertake a working visit to Botswana whilst in the region.
Early reviews for the new Lion King film have also been glowing, with critics hailing it as a "visual masterpiece" that will leave you "smiling and crying" throughout.
The trailer for the film has already had more than 37 million views.
