Elton was overheard saying, “I’m admiring your shoes, though to be fair, his jazzy flats were also pretty on point.” Elton John was complimenting Pharrell Williams dashing style. Meanwhile, Prince Harry couldn’t get enough of Pharrell (who collaborated on the soundtrack) and shorts and tuxedo jacket combo, saying, ‘I love the look’.

Meghan Markle also met Beyonce at the UK premiere for The Lion King in London.

Despite both having prominent careers in America, they hadn’t met before.

But the two women quickly bonded over their children, with the singer apparently saying Archie was ‘so beautiful’.

But it turns out Beyonce wasn’t the only celeb dishing out compliments to the Duchess, who was accompanied by Prince Harry on the red carpet.

After chatting to the Carters, the royal couple moved onto Sir Elton John, who couldn’t help but compliment Meghan on her outfit, and in particular, her shoes.

She wore a black satin Jason Wu midi dress which featured a sheer neckline and sleeves, and accessorised with Nikos Koulis stud earrings and a Gucci clutch.

On her feet were a pair of black satin Aquazurra, adorned with diamante straps at the back.

The royal couple were joined by a dazzling array of stars including Beyonce, her husband Jay-Z, Sir Elton John and Pharrell Williams.

Harry and Meghan will meet some of the cast and crew before watching the film.

Afterwards they greeted representatives from organisations doing groundbreaking work in the areas of conservation and the environment.

Disney has announced its global conservation campaign Protect the Pride to mark the movie’s release.
