This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended #TheLionKing European premiere in London at the Odeon Theatre. 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. 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. The Duke and Duchess are committed to advancing conservation efforts across Africa and around the world, and working with communities to ensure a sustainable future for the planet. This evening Their Royal Highnesses had the pleasure of meeting the cast and creative team behind the film, as well as supporters of @africanparksnetwork, of which The Duke is President.

While at the premiere, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle met and chatted with Beyoncé (the voice of Nala in the movie) and her hubby Jay-Z who was also in attendance. They hugged and apparently talked about Royal baby Archie.


Meghan has been a fan of Beyoncé for many years, often referencing her on her previous Instagram account. And Beyoncé and Jay-Z famously paid tribute to Meghan Markle during their acceptance video for Best International at the Brit awards this year.


The Lion King opens in theatres Friday, July 19th!
