Beyoncé and Jay-Z did not manage to cross the pond by accepting their 2019 Brit Award for Best International Group. So, instead, they filmed a little video to say thank you, in the style of their iconic video "Apesh * t" shot at the Louvre. But rather than posing in front of the Mona Lisa in Paris, they stood in front of an original portrait of Meghan Markle.
In a post on Instagram showing Jay and her next to the portrait, Beyoncé writes, "In the honor of Black History Month, we bow to one of our melanas Monas. Congratulations on your pregnancy! We wish you a lot of joy. "
Beyoncé explained her choice to honor Markle in his acceptance speech for Jay on his website, in a section of his website called #WeGood, created specifically to honor black cultural personalities during Canadian History Month. Black.
"We are happy to pay tribute to Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex. Meghan's experience as a film and television actress allowed her to use her platform for good. Meghan's charitable work in communities of color began years before she became the Duchess of Sussex, "reads the message. "At the wedding, her culture was in the foreground and she and Prince Harry continued to advance dialogue on interracial relations, both near and far."
Beyoncé's choice to honor Meghan has moved many people, especially considering the Duchess's treatment since her marriage to Prince Harry last May.
The American Duchess endured months of endless harassment and insults from British tabloids. The situation has become so much worse in recent months that even George Clooney has taken the time to talk about the Duchess's treatment. The Carters became the next American celebrity to show their support for the Duchess.
The appreciation of a superstar and a global icon is always a good thing, but a recognition that takes into account not only his status as a British royal family, but also that a person dedicated to humanitarian work is really the greater honor than can receive Beyoncé. A perfect birth gift for Meghan Markle.
