She may be the Duchess of Sussex and married to a real-life prince, but once upon a time, Meghan Markle was a Deal or No Deal briefcase girl (this, we know).

Howie Mandel, the host of the game show that began in 2005, said he sorta, kinda remembers the former Suits actress way back when she was on the show in its second season.

In an interview with E! News, Mandel said, “I didn’t remember Meghan Markle until they started showing pictures of her, once she got engaged, and she was standing there with the case, and I go, ‘Oh, yeah, I kinda remember her!’”

He went on to joke about his (nonexistent) attendance at the royal wedding. “When I was watching it [on TV], I just kept thinking, like millions of others, ‘Why wasn’t I invited?’” (And, same…)

Chrissy Teigen also remembers Markle from her briefcase days. In an interview with The Daily Mail last month, she said: “I was on Deal or No Deal with her, and she was lovely. Now everyone asks me what she was like and I say, ‘Sorry, no dirt.’ She’s gorgeous.”

Welp, no surprise there.
