The Duke & Duchess of Sussex attended Disney’s ‘The Lion King’ European Premiere at Leicester Square in London. They were accompanied on the red carpet by Colonel Jane Davis and Tessa Street, Manager of the Odeon Luxe cinema. Meghan was looking stunning in a black Jason Wu dress for her first appearance at a film premiere as a member of the Royal Family.
They met backstage with the director of the movie, Jon Favreau; the cast and creative team behind the film, Beyonce & her husband Jay-Z, Pharell Williams, Seth Rogen & Sir Elton John, who composed musics for the film.
The premiere was held in support of the Duke’s conservation work through the Royal Foundation. In celebration of the film’s release, The Walt Disney Company announced ProtectThePride, a global conservation campaign to support efforts protecting the rapidly diminishing lion population across Africa. As a part of their commitment to this cause, Disney also made a donation to The Duke of Sussex’s upcoming environment & community initiative which will be formally announced this autumn.
