Meghan Markle came face to face with music legend Beyonce at the Lion King red carpet on London last night.
She and her husband Prince Harry met with the singer and her husband Jay Z.
Meghan stunned in the appearance, her first red carpet jaunt since giving birth to Archie.
She wore a lavish outfit worth a whopping £15,000.
Meghan’s dress was the mesh panel flared dress from the Jason Wu collection, selling online currently for £1,948.98.
The dress fell to her mid calf, giving the Duchess the opportunity to wear some gorgeous shoes.
From a favourite brand of the royal, she wore the Aquazzura Portrait Of Lady 105 Slingback Pumps, £755.63.
Her clutch bag, a Gucci number, is the Broadway embellished satin clutch, selling on MyTheresa for £1,901.24.
A big jewellery fan, she wore some incredible black earrings from Nikos Koulis. In her ears she wore the 18k Oui Diamond & Black Enamel Octagonal Stud Earrings £10,711 from Modesens.
Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton were at Wimbledon together this week.
The joint day out came after months of speculation there is a rift between the pair.
An expert, Judi James, told Express.co.uk: “The bouts of identical mirroring between Kate, Meghan and Kate’s sister Pippa implies like-minded thinking and rapport here.
“With Meghan seated in the middle, the three used similar clapping and hand gestures and all three appeared to share laughter using very similarly relaxed seating positions.
“With Kate on one side and Pippa on the other Meghan was given two sets of active attention signals, with Kate in particular leaning across to her to pay eye-attention as they chatted.”
Meghan Markle has been criticised by some for the way she held baby Archie at the polo.
Last week the Duchess of Sussex was seen at the grounds with her newborn as they supported Harry, who was playing the equestrian sport.
One troll said: “She doesn’t know how to hold her child, she is wrestling and uncomfortable, on the verge of dropping him.”
According to Lucy Shrimpton, The Sleep Nanny and parenting expert at The Baby Show, there was actually nothing wrong with the way Meghan was holding baby Archie.
In fact, she believes this is actually the ideal way to hold a new baby.
Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile
Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.
Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.
Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.
She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.
Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.
She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.
Charity and humanitarian work
Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.
She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.
And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.
In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.
But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.
She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.
And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.
Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.
They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.
Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.
But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.
She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
