Royal fans were left raving about the moment, with many speculating that Beyonce had brought her own photographer to capture the premiere.
One posted: ‘Another point of view of this iconic moment. This time from Beyonce’s crew.’
Another commented:’Nice, I’ve only seen back shots. Beautiful.’

Beyoncé also shared a different, closer angle of the moment she embraced Prince Harry at the European premiere of the film, pictured
It appears to have been taken immediately after Beyoncé and Meghan met for the first time and shared a warm embrace.
Beyoncé shared the unseen picture alongside a gallery of snaps from the event, including one leaning in to embrace Prince Harry.
While the photograph is almost identical to the one shared on Sunday, it offers a closer glimpse of the embrace from a slightly different angle.
Dozens of photos capturing the meeting, including the one above, were shared shortly after the European premiere on the Lion King
Beyoncé greeted the Duchess with ‘Hi! … my princess,’ referring to her Brits acceptance video this year. In February the couple pre-recordered their acceptance speech after winning a BRIT award and it included a spoof painting of Meghan dressed as a princess – in a tiara and pearls.
The premiere is believed to be the first time the two women have met in person, but Beyoncé is known to be a fan of the royal, and paid tribute to her on her website during Black History Month.
The singer and her husband Jay-Z also offered the Duke and Duchess of Susse parenting advice last night, as they attended the glittering European premiere of The Lion King, telling the new parents to ‘always find time for themselves.’
Meghan beamed at Beyoncé and Jay-Z as she chatted to the megastar duo at The Lion King in Leicester Square on Sunday evening. The popstar told the Duchess that she ‘loved’ the royal couple, and declared baby Archie ‘so beautiful’
