That's according to her fashion designer friend Misha Nonoo, who the 'Suits' star thrust into the limelight when she wore one of her creations - a white Husband shirt - when she and Prince Harry made their first public appearance together, and Misha is aiming to be as "philanthropic" as her pal.

She said: "I had no idea she was going to wear it. It was a beautiful surprise and I was touched. The exposure has been incredible.

"I love her to death. She is the coolest girl in the world.

"We were seated next to one another at a lunch and we got along like a house on fire. "She has the most remarkable and generous spirit. I aspire to be as philanthropic as she is, and to have as much of an impact as her."

The pair bonded over many topics, including Meghan's work for World Vision Canada - a cause which aims to change a child's life and community for good, and who she is an ambassador for - and their love of dogs.

She explained: "We really bonded over that to begin with -- and we both love dogs, too. We have been very close ever since."

The British-raised designer is thought to be the person who introduced Harry to the actress, but is remaining tight-lipped on such speculation.

When asked if she was Harry and Meghan's matchmaker, she laughed and told the London Evening Standard newspaper: "I really can't answer that."
