Meghan Markle's hint about romance with Prince Harry that everyone missed

Turns out, Meghan Markle's relationship with Prince Harry was right under our noses the entire time.

Though their romance wasn't confirmed until last October, the couple had been dating since early that summer -- and nobody had any idea! But, if we had been paying closer attention, maybe we would've realized that there was something there.

In newly unearthed footage from the Create & Cultivate conference obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Markle dropped a hint about her new love during a Q&A session that flew right over everyone's heads.

"I flew in last night from London," she said at the October conference. "I'm leaving from here to go back to Toronto because we're filming."

Obviously, Markle could've been visiting London for reasons other than to visit her new boyfriend, but we're going to go ahead and guess that she spent a little time with her beau during her trip across the pond.

Another subtle clue that she was taken at the time? Her bracelet! During the appearance, she was also sporting the matching beaded bracelet that both she and Harry wear.

Since confirming their budding romance, Meghan and Harry have been the darlings of the media, and their insistence on privacy has only made fans even more curious about their relationship. They've only been spotted out in public together a handful of times, though they've visited each other in Toronto and London quite frequently.

Though Harry has introduced his ladylove to his brother, Prince William, and his wife, Kate Middleton, she has yet to snag a meeting with his beloved grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
