Meghan Markle made a surprise appearance at the BRIT awards last year when Beyonce and Jay Z posed in front of a portrait of her as they accepted their award.
The celebrity couple were unable to attend the event so filmed a short speech thanking people for their Best International Group trophy.
Beyonce said: "Thank you so much to the BRIT Awards for this incredible honour. You guys have always been so supportive. Everything is love. Thank you.”
Jay Z then joked to his wife: “You’re welcome."
The couple's nod to the Duchess of Sussex delighted people around the world, but there was one person who was completely shocked to see it – Meghan.
The new mum's close friend Daniel Martin has revealed how the Duchess reacted when she saw the clip for the first time – and it's brilliant.
Speaking during an interview with CBS presenter Gayle King, he said: "I sent her a picture.
"I think it was a screenshot 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."
Beyonce later explained the meaning behind their unusual acceptance speech on Instagram .
She wrote: "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 honour of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas. Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy."
