The 33-year-old model is confident she and the former 'Suits' star may meet up one day because they will be living close to one another once the 36-year-old actress moves into Nottingham House, Kensington Palace, permanently with Prince Harry following their May 2018 wedding.

Tamara wrote: "She's now living with Harry in Kensington Palace, which is just a stone's throw away from me, so hopefully we'll meet each other and walk our dogs together."
