Beyoncé and JAY-Z Accept BRIT Award in Front of Meghan Markle Portrait

  /  02.20.2019

Beyoncé and JAY-Z accepted their BRIT Award with a little help from Meghan Markle.

The superstar couple won the award for International Group, and accepted in grand fashion. While they were unable to attend Wednesday’s ceremony at London’s O2 Arena, they sent in a video. The 30-second clip opens with a close-up of a portrait of the Duchess of Sussex before panning out to reveal The Carters standing alongside the royal artwork, soundtracked by the instrumental to their Everything Is Love collaboration “APESHIT.”

“Thank you so much to the BRIT Awards for this incredible honor,” said Bey as she held the award. “You guys have always been so supportive, Everything Is Love. Thank you.”

“You’re welcome,” joked JAY while Bey laughed.

The couple then turned around and stared at the portrait of Meghan, much like they did with the Mona Lisa in the video for “APESHIT.”

At the end of the video, a child’s voice, possibly Blue Ivy, can be heard asking “Why?”

The Carters weren’t the only big winners at the BRITs. Ariana Grande took home International Female, Drake was honored with International Male, and Nicki Minaj won British Video of the Year alongside Little Mix for “Woman Like Me.”
