Duchess Meghan Dazzles in a Classy Black Dress at London's 'Lion King' Premiere

Meghan Markle stormed the red carpet at the 2019 “Lion King” premiere in London on Sunday alongside her husband, Prince Harry. She looked stunning in her classy black dress as she smiled for the cameras.

The Duchess and new mother of son, Archie arrived at the “Lion King” premiere held at London’s West end, in a graceful black dress. Meghan was a sight to behold as she looked gorgeous beside her husband, in her knee-length flared Jason Wu dress, and her all-black accessories


The Jason Wu sheer sleeves dress reportedly cost $4,924 which the Duchess paired with a black Gucci clutch and an equally black pair of shoes by Aquazurra. In contrast to the extravagantly priced ensemble, her makeover reflected nothing but simplicity, and a pair of black Nikos Koulis diamond earrings to complete the priceless look.

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives!

The Sunday event marked the first appearance of the Duchess in a red carpet glam since the birth of her 2-month-old son. It was no wonder all eyes were set on her as she went about her royal business of stunning and smiling for the cameras beside the Duke of Sussex. Her outfit was undoubtedly one of the best at the star-studded event.

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.

The royal mother of one displayed true support and leadership with her appearance at the event. Not many were expecting her presence because of her ongoing maternity leave. Notably, despite not being duty-bound to attend the wildlife awareness event, the Duchess made a point of showing up to show her loyalty to the cause.

The movie premiere was held in support of Prince Harry’s conservation work on behalf of communities affiliated with endangered wildlife in Africa.

The actress-turned-royalty was reunited with many of the stars involved in making the movie a success. The new mother was excited to meet Beyonce and Jay-Z at the movie premiere. The queen of hip hop also shared her excitement as they exchanged hugs and small talks.

Other celebrities of note that graced the event included Elton John and Pharrell Williams. It was indeed a memorable night for the “Suits” star, who has not been on movie sets since becoming a royal bride.
