What happens when two pairs of pop culture royalty come together? They talk about their kids, of course.
That’s what happened When Harry Met…Beyonce and Jay-Z over the weekend at the London premiere of The Lion King. Conversation between the couples naturally shifted to baby Archie, whom Beyonce described as “so beautiful” to new mom Meghan Markle.
According to PEOPLE, at one point during the mutual fawning, Prince Harry revealed that Archie had recently mastered lifting his neck up.
Harry also said Archie is “not so little anymore” as he looked at Meghan, who we can only assume nodded in agreement, while thinking to herself, “he didn’t feel little while I was carrying him in my stomach for 9 months, either!”

With Jay-Z and Beyoncé having three kids of their own — 7-year-old Blue Ivy and 2-year-old twins Rumi and Sir — the rapper was eager to share some advice to the royal couple.
“The best advice I can give you, always find some time for yourself,” he told them.
And when Harry inquired about where their twins were during their mom’s big movie premier, Beyoncé’s replied, “We left them at home. They would loved to have been here.”
When the two couples departed, Beyoncé said to reporters, “They are so sweet.”
