The 39-year-old singer publicly thanked Meghan, 39, on her website.
Alongside a photo of the two of them deep in conversation, Beyoncé wrote: “Thank you Meghan for your courage and leadership.
“We are all strengthened and inspired by you.”
Beyonce’s note comes after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s bombshell interview with Oprah, which featured Meghan admitting to being suicidal while five months pregnant with baby Archie.
She also revealed there were “several conversations” about Archie’s skin color.

The Single Ladies singer is not the only celebrity to weigh in on the interview.
Real Housewives Of New York alum Bethenny Frankel slammed the pregnant royal before the interview in a tweet, stating: “Cry me a river… the plight of being a game show host, fairly unknown actress, to suffering in a palace, [with] tiaras & 7 figure weddings for TWO WHOLE YEARS to being a household name [with] @Oprah on speed dial, fetching 7m for interviews, hundreds of millions in media deals.”
After Bethenny was slammed by fans, the RHONY alum went on to apologize for ‘hurting and offended” people.
While the Bravo may have come after the Duchess, other famous faces did not and instead took to social media to praise Meghan.
Meghan’s friend Serena Williams defended the former Suits star and said she’s had her own experiences with “systemic oppression.”

The tennis star tweeted: “Meghan Markle, my selfless friend, lives her life – and leads by example – with empathy and compassion.
“She teaches me every day what it means to be truly noble. Her words illustrate the pain and cruelty she’s experienced.
“The mental health consequences of systemic oppression and victimisation are devastating, isolating and all too often lethal.
“I want Meghan’s daughter, my daughter and your daughter to live in a society that is driven by respect.”
