The pair scooped up the award for the Best International Group, and although they couldn’t attend the ceremony at the O2 in London, they did send a video message acceptance speech.
In it, they recreated their ‘Apeshit’ music video, where they were casually hanging out in the Louvre in front of the Mona Lisa. Only instead of Leonardo da Vinci’s painting, they were standing in front of a portrait of Meghan Markle in a crown. But why? Are we missing something? Not that we’re complaining.
Viewers on Twitter were equally bemused-yet-loving the unexplained moment, with one writing, ‘LMFAO at Jay Z and Beyonce turning to face ‘Queen Meghan Markle’ !!! #brits [sic]’
Another commented, ‘Please. PLEASE tell me I’m not the only one dying at Beyonce & Jay Z stood there with a painting of Meghan Markle depicted as a queen. #BRITS2019’, while a third added, ‘Omg that was Meghan Markle? I didn’t even clock #Brits [sic]’
#BRITS2019 International awards to:
The Carter's win! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

During their acceptance speech, the pair 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. You’re Welcome.’
Queen Bey and Jay-Z, always on their own vibe.
