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.

FAN'S REACTION TO MEGHAN IS MEME-WORTHY
A Twitter user with the handle @LadyParky79 shared: “Oh my... the look on his face is hilarious and cute at the same time …” Clearly, he was in awe of seeing Meghan so up close.
For the occasion, she stunned in a black Jason Wu satin dress designed with sheer sleeves. The $6,183 gown featured a “mesh panel” and was accentuated with a $3,007 Gucci clutch bag and matching Aquazzura shoes.

She completed her look with earrings by Greek designer Nikos Koulis. Her husband looked very handsome and complemented his wife’s look with a tuxedo, a bow tie, white shirt, and evening shoes.
FAN WAS STAR-STRUCK BY THE DUCHESS
The same Twitter user with the comment about the man’s face also thought the image was meme-worthy. A second picture of the awe-struck man showed him with his phone held up high to take a photo of Meghan while he had the chance.
The second image was no less funny as the man still had his mouth wide open with shock. As the Royal couple appeared walking hand-in-hand, fans let out shrieks of excitement and we’re pretty sure the open-mouthed man was one of them!
Used to the attention but always humbled by it, Meghan waved at her fans and spoke to a few lucky ones. Other stars who were on hand for the premiere were Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z.
OTHER STARS WHO ATTENDED THE PREMIERE
In the film, Beyoncé voices the character Nala and Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) stars as Simba. Also in attendance were Sir Elton John, Pharrell Williams, Rochelle and Marvin Humes, Myleene Klass, and Seth Rogen to name a few.
Meghan and Harry attended the premiere in aid of conservation work through The Royal Foundation.

STAR-STRUCK FANS WHO CHANTED MEGHAN'S NAME
Last year October, the Duchess had fans chanting her name as she and her husband had a walkabout in Rotorua, New Zealand. It also happened to be the final day of their Royal tour and fans were desperate to gain her attention.
The crowd of girls eventually gained her attention as she turned around to greet them as they held a giant poster that they’d made for the couple.
