He captioned the pic: “Name drop of the day…At the White House on Patrick’s Day three years ago, I was introduced to an elegant actress named Meghan Markle so we took a selfie.”

Earlier this year The Late Late show host told the story of how they met.

“He [Prince Harry] seems to have decided, ‘I don’t need a society type, I just want somebody fun’. Then I remembered, I met her. This is the biggest name drop you’ll hear from me all week,” he said on his radio show.

“There I was at the White House, for the Patrick’s Day ceremony and I bump into Mr John Fitzpatrick who runs these great hotels in New York. He said this is my friend Meghan and he said, ‘do you know Meghan?'”

He joked about referring to her as an “old friend” from now on.

“She’s particularly pleasant. Great fun. We did photographs, we were all giddy because we were at the White House. There was a nice buzz in the air. It was glorious March sunshine and then fast forward a year and I see, there’s my old friend Meghan, as she is now, and will be forever more.”
