Think of Meghan Markle now and you'll immediately begin associating the former Suits star with news about the royal family, her role as Duchess of Sussex, the royal baby, and the royal wedding in May.

However, long before she began dating her now husband, Prince Harry, in the summer of 2016, the duchess was hanging out with another member of British 'royalty'.

In 2015, Meghan visited Istanbul in Turkey for the opening of Soho House, a favourite of hers, given her close friendship with a consultant of fancy-pants club, Markus Anderson.

During her holiday, she was photographed with a famous British actor with close connections to the royal family. A picture taken by photographer Jason Bailey captured Meghan with Harry Potter star and Oscar winner, Eddie Redmayne, at Istanbul Soho House.

Okay, so Eddie may not technically belong to royalty, but anyone who stars in a Potter film deserves a crown in our eyes.

At the time, the pictured was posted to Twitter with the caption: "Night in, watching movies and remember fun times with this crew."

Despite neither Eddie and Meghan currently having social media accounts, the duchess' previous Twitter account was tagged in the post.

While it's unknown whether Meghan and Eddie remain friends, the pair had the opportunity to catch up in September when they took a trip to Soho House, Amsterdam and were joined by Prince Harry.

Meghan's friendship with Eddie will almost definitely go down well with Prince Harry, who is rumoured to be a huge Harry Potter fan.
