Beyonce, fondly known as Queen Bey, has paid homage to a fellow ‘royal’ – quite literally that is!

The music superstar and her husband Jay Z won Best International Group at the Brit Awards on Wednesday night.

Unfortunately, they couldn’t be there and instead recorded a video acceptance speech which was played out to the crowds at London’s O2 Arena.

That’s where it gets interesting, or slightly bizarre.

The video opens up with a close up of a portrait of Duchess Meghan decked in regal royal jewels.

The pregnant royal –  depicted as ‘the Queen’ or a modern take on the infamous Mona Lisa – is pictured with a smug look on her face (she bagged Prince Harry after all!)

After the duo say their speech, the video closes with the couple ‘bowing down’ to Meghan.

Always a trendsetter and never one to follow the rules, Beyonce is always making a statement, whether it be with regards to fashion, politics or driving the feminist movement (think smash hit song; Who run the world – Girls!).

But her latest move begs the question; is Queen Bey clapping back at all Meghan’s haters? Is she hoping Meghan will name her new baby after her? Or is it a sign of respect from one queen to another?
