One need only glimpse a few photos of Prince Harry and his girlfriend Meghan Markle to know that they are #CoupleGoals — and it turns out that the prince thought so long before he and Markle even met.

Katie Nicholl, a royal family commentator who discussed the relationship in the upcoming documentary When Harry Met Meghan: A Royal Romance, said that Prince Harry developed something of a celebrity crush on Markle while watching Suits. On the USA series, Markle plays the smart and capable Rachel Zane. And Harry has been, according to Nicholl, a fan of the show since it first aired in 2011.

For us non-famous folk, chances of a celebrity crush ever becoming a reality are slim to none. But when you’re a literal prince, there are more possibilities open to you.

Nicholl says Harry went to Markus Anderson, a consultant for Soho House and a mutual friend of Markle’s, to ask for help setting up an introduction.

According to the documentary, Harry and Meghan hit it off right away. The rest is, as they say, history.
