The musicians are no strangers to parenting. The couple welcomed Blue Ivy, 7, in 2012, and she became an older sister five years later when twins Sir and Rumi, 2, arrived. With all this experience, the rapper, 49, shared words of wisdom, according to royal reporter Emily Andrews, telling the pair that they needed to “always find some time for [themselves].”

A source told Us Weekly exclusively that Beyoncé also gushed about how great it was to meet Meghan. The new mom simply replied, “You’re so sweet.”

The premiere marked her first red carpet appearance with the former military pilot since welcoming their baby boy. An onlooker told Us, “They shook people’s hands as they walked past and also stopped for longer conversations. They were always physically linked; Meghan rubbed Harry’s back while he talked to fans alone, and he held onto her waist while she had conversations alone. They were very connected physically and it was obvious they had each other’s backs — literally and figuratively. They didn’t pose for selfies, but almost every fan who spoke with them took selfies while they chatted.”

The couple welcomed Archie in May and gushed about the little guy two days later. “He has the sweetest temperament,” the former actress told members of the press inside Windsor Castle at the time. “He’s really calm. He’s been the dream, so it’s been a special couple of days.”
