Jay-Z And Queen Bey meet British "royalty."

(AllHipHop News) Beyonce and Jay-Z paid tribute to Meghan, Duchess of Sussex in an unlikely fashion while accepting a Brit Award on last night.

The hip-hop supercouple wasn't present for the ceremony at the O2 Arena in London.

They appeared via a pre-recorded video message after winning the Best International Group prize for their work as The Carters.

Beyonce and Jay-Z's acceptance clip recreated a scene from their video for hit song "APES##T," in which they solemnly stood in front of the Mona Lisa at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France.

For the BRIT Awards, they replaced the famous painting with a portrait of Meghan wearing a regal tiara.

The stars didn't directly mention the American actress-turned-British royal, but the hitmakers expressed their gratitude for the accolade, saying: "Thank you so much to the BRIT Awards for this incredible honor. You guys have always been so supportive. Everything is love. Thank you."

Jay then simply added, "You're welcome," before they both turned to face the portrait of the pregnant Duchess.

Shortly after the couple's appearance at the Brits, Beyonce shared the video on her Instagram page.
