Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were initially set up on a blind date last summer by Markle’s best friend, fashion designer Misha Nonoo, the Telegraph is reporting. Markle, who had read about Harry in the headlines, only had one question: “Is he kind?”

It appears he is. Nonoo’s connection to Harry comes from her marriage to Alexander Gilkes, who went to school with the prince. The Telegraph reports that when Markle and Harry met at a members’ club in London, the connection was instantaneous. The rest, of course, is history. Take a look at Nonoo below.
