Meghan Markle Sparkles in Elegant Schwartz Diamond Earrings at 'The Lion King' Premiere

Meghan Markle debuted a new version of her diamond earrings as she attended the premiere for the revamped live-action version of "The Lion King." 

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped out in London on Sunday for the fundraiser premiere of "Lion King," proceeds for which will go towards the Protect the Pride campaign. Photos are found below. 

Harry's conservation project benefits both the Lion Recovery Fund and the Wildlife Conservation Network, which work towards the restoration of the lion population and the protection of the species.

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 couple greeted a few fans, spoke to the cast of the film, the most popular of which was perhaps the Queen herself — Queen Bey, that is — Beyonce Knowles who showed up with legendary rapper and husband Jay-Z.

Of course, Markle held lots of attention wearing a black Jason Wu Mesh Panel Fit and Flare Dress that costs $2,450 which she paired with a Gucci 'Broadway' clutch costing $2,390.

She finished off the look with a pair of black slingback Aquazzura heels worth $950. In terms of accessories, Markle wore a sole piece of jewelry which could be either brand new or a remake of her old ones. 

The Duchess of Sussex wore some diamond studs which, according to Harpers Bazaar, were fitted with black removable onyx jackets. The outlet and others suggest that it's the same pair Markle wore to Trooping the Color in June.

Back then, the diamonds were all alone on Marke's ears, so it's presumed she updated them with the detachable black enamel to be able to switch up her look as she sees fit. 

Page Six reported that the piece could also be a Nikos Koulis 18k diamond and black enamel stud, which goes for $12,204 on the Neiman Marcus website. Either way, Markle looked gorgeous in them.

Next to her, Harry stunned in a black suit and bowtie as the two walked hand in hand on the golden carpet which was decked out in paw prints. Cameras were prepped to capture the moment they met Beyoncé. 

The two women hugged each other and then reportedly discussed what all mothers do — their kids, of course. Beyoncé reportedly told Markle that baby Archie Harrison "is so beautiful."

Meanwhile, Markle inquired about Beyoncé's kids Blue Ivy, seven, and two-year-old twins Sir and Rumi who missed out on the premiere night for what is a well-known children's movie. 

Prince Harry also hugged Beyoncé and shook the hand of the iconic rapper at the event. Royal fans and Beyoncé lovers were all thrilled to see the two couples come together for positive initiatives.
