According to the Daily Mail's Rebecca English, Beyonce congratulated Meghan on the birth of "beautiful" two-month-old Archie, telling her that she and her husband "love you guys".

Meghan then reportedly asked about Beyonce and Jay-Z's two-year-old twins, Rumi and Sir.

"They are not here, they don't come on every trip. We left them at home. They would have loved to have been here," the singer replied.

Jay-Z then offered up a parenting tip: "The best advice I can give you, always find time for yourself."

The meeting of the two high-profile women sent the Beyhive into a frenzy, with fans taking to Twitter to share their excitement.
