The identity of the “mutual friend” who introduced Prince Harry to his future bride Meghan Markle has never been confirmed – until now.
And why didn’t we guess? Of course it was The Good Place’s Tahani Al-Jamil.
After a Twitter user wrote, “I bet tahani al-jamil is the mutual friend that set harry and meghan up,” actress Jameela Jamil confirmed the rumour was “100 percent factual.”

“We were all in Johnny Depp’s mansion, watching my best friend Beyonce perform a song about my other friend Taylor,” she added. Where else.
The name-dropping character from Netflix comedy The Good Place has been uncharacteristically silent about her royal matchmaking talents, but now it’s out in the open.
After announcing his engagement to American actress Meghan Markle, Prince Harry said in an interview: “We were introduced, actually, by a mutual friend – we’ll protect her privacy – but it was literally through her.” Nice work, Tahani.
100 percent factual. We were all in Johnny Depps mansion, watching my best friend beyonce perform a song about my other friend Taylor. https://t.co/m8Z7OVgVYG

And with The Good Place set to return for a third season, can we expect a cheeky on-screen reference?
If this isn’t in next season’s scripts, I’ll be sad. pic.twitter.com/wnG13bwca1
