All hail Queen Bey.
Just when you thought you'd seen all there was to see from Beyoncé's iconic appearance at the London premiere of Lion King on Sunday (July 14), the legendary entertainer dropped half a dozen drop-dead-gorgeous photos (and one stunning video clip) of her all glammed up before she walked the red carpet.
In Bey fashion, she released the photos on Instagram with no caption, letting the pictures do all the talking. In the shots, the 37-year-old singer shows off her enviable curves, which were highlighted by her custom Cong Tri gold pleated gown with a thigh-high slit, her flawless glam, and her priceless jewels. Majority of the shot were taken on a London rooftop that overlooked the famous London Eye. #ICON
As fans know, Bey, who plays the voice of Nala in the upcoming live-action remake, walked the red carpet on Sunday with her husband Jay- Z. The two also met royals Meghan Markle and Prince Harry before heading in to the premiere. During the encounter, Beyoncé addressed the Duchess of Sussex as "My Princess." The mom of three also gushed over Meghan's newborn son Archie, calling him "so beautiful."
As fans know, Bey and Jay shouted out Duchess Meghan while accepting their award for Best International Group via a video message earlier this year. For their acceptance speech, the couple recreated the final scene of their "APESH*T" music video where they're shown standing in from of Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa." However, for their acceptance video, the two stood in front of a similar portrait that instead showed Meghan wearing a crown and pearl necklaces.
The "Shining" singer later shared the video and photos of her and Jay standing in front of the painting to Instagram, along with an explanation of their reason for including the Meghan portrait. "Thank you to the Brits for the award for Best International Group. I won this award back in 2002 with my besties, Kelly and Michelle. How lucky am I to have been in a group with my other best friend, the GOAT Hova. 🙌🏾," Bey wrote. "In honor of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas. Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy."
