During a Channel 4 special airing Friday in the U.K, Nicholl claimed that the 33-year-old royal once described the actress as his “ideal girl” after becoming a fan of her character, Rachel Zane, on the show Suits … two years prior to meeting her.

In the special titled When Harry Met Meghan: A Royal Romance, Nicholl said: “He had a crush on Rachel Zane two years before he met Meghan and the reason I know is because I was having drinks with one of his friends. She told me she’d been on a night out with Prince Harry. He was single at the time, so she said, ‘Harry, who’s your ideal girl?’ And he said ‘Meghan Markle from Suits.’”
