Watch Beyoncè and Jay-Z pay tribute to Meghan Markle in BRIT Awards acceptance speech

Beyoncé and Jay-Z took home the 2019 Brit Award for Best International Group for their recent collaboration, The Carters.

It marks the second time Bey has won the award – her girl group Destiny’s Child won the same accolade in 2002.

Unable to accept the award in person, the couple sent in a video to accept their award, delivering a clever acceptance speech which paid tribute to Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle.

Holding their trophy, Beyoncè began the acceptance speech: “Thank you so much to the BRIT Awards for this incredible honor. You guys have always been so supportive”, finishing by referencing the couple’s collaborative album, “Everything is love, Thank you.”

Classically, Jay-Z responded to his wife with a deadpanned, “You’re welcome.”

The acceptance speech was recorded with a regal portrait of the royal Markle mounted behind them.

Following their speech, the pair turned to face the picture, recreating their stance in the ‘Apeshit’ music video by the Mona Lisa at the Louvre in Paris.

Writing on Instagram after the video aired, Beyoncè said: “In honor of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas.”
