As the royal couple mingled with other guests, the Duchess was given a bouquet, a book and an adorable Simba toy for baby Archie by Evie Chambers and Valentina Walker, both 12. The two young girls' parents are associated with Disney.

Evie and Valentina said that meeting Meghan and Harry was "amazing" and revealed that the former "Suits" star had asked who their preferred characters in the film were.

"We said Simba and Nala," Evie said. "I told her this is for you, and she seemed really delighted."

The European premiere of "Lion King" was held in support of Harry's conservation and communities work through The Royal Foundation.

Disney will donate to the Wildlife Conservation Network in help of the Lion Recovery Fund and its local partners for each one that is sold.

The Walt Disney Company likewise announced the launch of a worldwide discussion campaign called Protect the Pride, which aim to bring issues to light for the diminishing population of lions across Africa.
