Duchess Meghan Is Praised By Beyonce’s Mother Tina Knowles

Beyonce isn’t the only Meghan Markle fan in her family; it turns out her mother Tina Knowles is as well.

Queen Bey first paid tribute to the Duchess of Sussex during an acceptance speech video for the 2019 Brit Awards. She and Jay-Z stood in front of a Markle royal portrait — a play on their 2018 “APES**T” music video in which the couple stands next to the Mona Lisa at the Louvre in Paris.

“In [honour] of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas,” Beyonce later wrote on her website to explain the video. “Congrats on your pregnancy!”

Now it was the older Knowles’ turn to gush over Markle, telling US Weekly that she is “a beautiful, intelligent, independent young woman.”
