Before Meghan Markle married Prince Harry and became the Duchess of Sussex, she was a working actress in Hollywood. She appeared on television shows like Deal or No Deal and films like Remember Me, but her most notable role was as Rachel Zane on American TV show Suits, which she appeared on from 2011 to 2017. But on her wedding day, her worlds collided when a surprise guest showed up.
After the nuptials at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, the happy couple embarked on a carriage ride through London. However, they had no idea that ITV News, an English news station, had a special guest waiting for them.

Gigi Perreau, Markle's former drama teacher and 1940s film star, was a guest of ITV as an exclusive contributor. As the carriage grew closer, Perreau wondered aloud if the new duchess would recognize her. She was right.

In the video, Markle sees her old teacher and exclaims "Oh my God," as she makes direct eye contact before the carriage pulls away. It causes Harry to look at her as well. Perreau is obviously delighted, and the acknowledgment makes for a sweet moment in the midst of what's a long and exciting day for the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
