Celebrities: they’re just like us! Case-in-point: Meghan Markle is a Beyoncé stan, and Beyoncé stans Meghan. And we stan them both. This revelation first came to light when Beyoncé posted on Instagram and her website in honor of the Duchess of Sussex during Black History Month, paying tribute to the "Melanated Mona" and congratulating her on her pregnancy. Meghan doesn’t have any personal social media accounts, so no one knew if she actually saw Queen Bey’s post for her. But makeup artist Daniel Martin revealed that she did, and Meghan Markle’s reaction to Beyoncé’s portrait of her proves that even English royalty freaks out over Queen Bey.
Martin is a makeup artist and one of Markle’s longtime friends. He did an interview with Gayle King recently, where King asked Martin about his friendship with the Duchess. Beyoncé’s portrait of Meghan came up in conversation, naturally, because who wouldn’t ask about that? And Martin revealed that he was the one to inform Meghan of the portrait.
"I sent her a pic—I think it was a screen grab of the two of them in front of the portrait. I think all I wrote was, ‘Girl.’ She wrote me back like the big eye emoji."
So, was that big-eye emoji reaction more like this?
Or more of a single tear for the dramatic effect?
Or was it more like this?!
Personally, if Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter had a portrait made of me, I think screaming and then immediately passing out would be more of my reaction. Yeah, that sounds about right.
This is the aforementioned portrait, in case you haven’t seen it.

Thank you to the Brits for the award for Best International Group. I won this award back in 2002 with my besties, Kelly and Michelle. How lucky am I to have been in a group with my other best friend, the GOAT Hova. 🙌🏾 In honor of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas. Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy.
Beyoncé and JAY-Z posed next to it in a video acceptance speech aired during the Brit Awards earlier this year.
On her website, Beyoncé posted the photo again and gave a long shout out to the Duchess of Sussex.
