Beyonce and Jay-Z reportedly “completely upstaged” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at the “Lion King” premiere Sunday.

After the royal security put together plans for Markle and Harry, Beyoncé and Jay-Z showed up after the royals to the London premiere, according to a report published by Entertainment Tonight.

The music duo “completely upstaged” the royals, and even got a bigger welcome from fans who had gathered outside of the premiere. (RELATED: Meghan Markle Makes Appearance At Wimbledon To Cheer On Serena Williams)

The group mostly talked about the royals’ new baby Archie and Beyoncé reportedly told Markle that she and Jay-Z “love you guys.”

Nothing about this story surprises me. Sometimes famous people are just late to things. It happens all the time. No one will ever know why they were late, but it is what it is. I would like to think they didn’t arrive later than the Duchess and Prince on purpose, but who knows.

As for Beyonce and Jay-Z upstaging the royals, I’m, again, not surprised. Everyone loves Beyoncé and Jay-Z just comes along with the package. Markle might be a Duchess, but Beyoncé is American royalty with a global following.

It’s also her movie premiere, so I’d hope the people congregated outside were her fans. Markle and Prince Harry should have been telling Beyoncé how much they love her.
