Beyonce, Jay-Z, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shared a friendly public moment on the red carpet at the premier of The Lion King.

The couples stopped for a chat in front of the cameras, and reportedly took a moment to discuss their children.

According to Daily Mail’s royal correspondent Rebecca English who witnessed the exchange, Harry asked after Beyonce and Jay-Z’s children Rumi and Sir Carter.

“And how are the twins?” he asked.

Beyoncé reportedly replied: “They are not here. They don’t come on every trip.”

“We left them at home. They would loved to have been here.”

Beyonce and Jay-Z have three children, and offered some advice to Meghan and Harry, who recently welcomed their first son Archie back in May.

“The best advice I can give you, always find time for yourself,” Jay-Z told the new parents.

In an Instagram post on Harry and Meghan’s page, the couple revealed that the film’s release marks the launch of a new lion-focused African conservation programme.

“In celebration of the film’s release, The Walt Disney Company announced #ProtectThePride, a global conservation campaign to support efforts protecting the rapidly diminishing lion population across Africa,” the caption reads.

“As a part of their commitment to this cause, Disney also made a donation to The Duke of Sussex’s upcoming environment & community initiative which will be formally announced this autumn.”
