Beyoncé and Jay Z accepted their award for Best Internation Group – as The Carters – at the Brits by posing before a painting of Meghan Markle dressed as Queen.
The pair were unable to appear in person, instead beaming into the room through a video link.
“You guys have been so supportive,” Beyoncé said accepting the award. Neither commented on the painting behind them.
Before the wedded duo made an appearance, host Jack Whitehall quipped: ”It’s time to celebrate the International artists – from a distance, as none of them could be bothered to show up.”
Artists up for awards included Dua Lipa, George Ezra and Florence + the Machine. On the night, The 1975 and Calvin Harris reigned victorious, taking home two awards each. Other international artists to win awards included Drake and Ariana Grande – who were also unable to attend the awards ceremony.
The Brit Awards took place at the O2 Arena in London.
