Beyoncé and Jay-Z accepted their 2019 BRIT Awards honor alongside a portrait of Meghan Markle.

The superstar couple appeared in a video message during Wednesday's ceremony after being announced as the winners of the International Group award. The video started off zoomed in on a portrait of the Duchess of Sussex, before the camera panned out to reveal Bey and Jay standing alongside the portrait with their trophy.

"Thank you so much to the BRIT Awards for this incredible honor," Bey, wearing a Peter Pilotto Spring Summer 2019 design, said in the couple's acceptance speech. "You guys have always been so supportive, everything is love. Thank you."

"You're welcome," Jay-Z joked as Beyoncé laughed.

The couple then turned around to look at the portrait of Meghan.

At the end of the video, you could also hear a child's voice, possibly Blue Ivy Carter, ask, "Why?"

"Thank you to the Brits for the award for Best International Group," Bey wrote on Instagram, also mentioning her 2002 win with Destiny's Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. "I won this award back in 2002 with my besties, Kelly and Michelle. How lucky am I to have been in a group with my other best friend, the GOAT Hova."

She continued her post, "In honor of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas. Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy."

While the 2019 Brit Awards are taking place at The O2 Arena in London, the expecting Duchess of Sussex is in New York City. On Wednesday, she was joined by her closest pals, including Amal Clooney, for a baby shower in the city.
