Before marrying Prince Harry, Meghan Markle had plenty of celebrity connections and famous friends of her own, and it looks like she can add one more to the list.

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight on Friday, Lucy Hale revealed that she and the duchess crossed paths when they were both relatively new to Hollywood. According to the Pretty Little Liars alum, the pair almost appeared on-screen together in a TV pilot that never ended up airing.

"I didn't realize this because none of my scenes were with her, but it was an ABC pilot," Hale said, adding that she was just 16 years old at the time. "It was called Secrets of a Small Town, and she was in that pilot. I remember at the table read I was like, 'Oh my god, she's so beautiful,' but I don't think I ever spoke to her."

Sadly, Lucy and Meghan didn't stay in touch, and the Katy Keene star never had the opportunity to be introduced to Harry. "I've never met Prince Harry. Only in my dreams," Hale joked.

With Meghan and Harry's recent move to Los Angeles, there's a chance Lucy's dream could soon become a reality.
