Meghan Markle surprised everyone last night when she walked onstage to present her friend Clare Waight Keller with the Womenswear Designer of the Year award, and she planned it so well that Clare herself had no idea.

“I’m not jok­ing, it was a com­plete and gen­uine sur­prise. I re­ally did not know she was com­ing tonight at all!” she told Grazia today.

The craziest part is that she and Meghan saw each other as recently as last week, when Clare was fitting her for the dress she wore to the ceremony. That’s when Meghan lied to her about where she was wearing it.

“I was ac­tu­ally fit­ting her for the dress last week and she said, ‘Oh I’m going to this thing next week, I think it’s Mon­day or Tues­day night, I have to check my cal­en­dar.’ I just did not think any­thing of it,” Clare said. “Then she walked in!”

Meghan’s speech about Clare was super sweet, and she explained that when people choose to wear a certain designer, they’re choosing to be an extension of their values, which is why she was honored to present Clare with the award.

And when Clare accepted, she said working with Meghan was “amazing.” She told Grazia afterward that she hopes they continue to work together long into the future.

“It’s a re­la­tion­ship that’s just start­ing and I think be­tween the two of us we’ve got such an in­nate un­der­stand­ing of each other,” she said. “I think go­ing through such a per­sonal expe­ri­ence, like the wed­ding dress, you can never lose that con­nec­tion with the per­son you work with on it.”
