Celebrating their BRIT award win for Best Musical Group, Beyonce and Jay-Z posted an photo of themselves on IG last week that surely had people talking. The photo is a nod to a frame from their musical video APES**T  in which the couple is posed in front of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa at the Louvre. In the celebratory IG version,  however the couple appeared to be flanking a reimagined portrait of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, instead.

As probably intended by the two celebritys, fans and social media followers went crazy about the “painting” and started wondering where could they get their own regal Duchess of Sussex portrait.

The Carters definitely have the most dedicated fanbase as it was soon found out that the mastermind behind the painting is artist Tim O’Brien, who is well known for his pop culture illustrations—
