With the royal wedding just ONE DAY away, we couldn't help but look back on the time that the royal bride-to-be sat down at our kitchen table with Rach in 2015.

At the time, "Suits" -- USA's legal drama that Meghan left earlier this year -- had just been renewed for a 5th season and the lifestyle blog that she has since retired, The Tig, wasn't even a year old.

(And little did she know, she was just over a year away from meeting her real-life Prince Charming, Prince Harry!)

"The name 'The Tig,' comes from a wine called tignanello," Meghan told Rach of her new website at the time. "I had a sip of this wine one day six or seven years ago, and I went, 'Oh, this is what people are talking about when they talk about the body, the structure that you find in wine.'

"And I said," she continues, "'It's such an ah-ha moment, it's a tig moment!'"

So, essentially, her blog is named after wine. Amazing!

(And yes, she knows that's not how you pronounce the wine, but since most people pronounce it that way, she ran with it!)

Hear her dish on "The Tig" more in the video above -- and do you know her real name? (Hint: It's not Meghan!)

Find out what it is in the video below! (Spoiler alert: Rach is *super* fond of it.)
