Asymina Kantorowicz and her boyfriend had just finished their New Year's Day picnic when they wanted to snap a photo in a remote part of a Canadian park.
Now that it's finally 2020, however, Meghan and Harry should be returning to the United Kingdom any day now to resume their official royal duties.
They didn't want to bother the couple on their vacation so they didn't ask for a photo.
The queen has chose to cut off Harry and Meghan after she tried to bring them to their senses but it got nowhere and hence she wants to wash her hands completely from them.
The video was shared to the Sussex Royal Instagram page on New Year's Eve and included photos of the royal couple at public engagements, during their royal tour of Africa, and doting on their young son, Archie.
But after the realization of who she was speaking to Kantorowicz says she "froze up". "Then I looked to the side and that was when I realized that Prince Harry was standing there".
"'I kept looking back and forth like, 'Is this actually happening?" Kantorowicz said Markle was "so friendly" and "extremely nice".
"She handed the phone back and said, 'Happy New Year!' and we said, 'Thanks and happy New Year!" the Victoria woman said.
"We've been doing this hike on New Year's Day for the past two years".
The several acres of grounds also includes a guest cottage, as well as some very Insta-worthy scenery, at least if the Sussexes' latest upload of baby Archie and Prince Harry is any indication.
Meghan took a trio of photos of the couple before leaving with her group, which included the royal couple's two dogs. "She laughed and said something like, 'We'll have to take a good photo then, ' and then Harry said, 'No pressure'". "We would not have recognized them had they not approached us".
"We had no idea it was going to happen", she told the broadcaster, explaining that she first became aware after a member of her knitting group showed her the picture. "It feels like a dream". "It's a rather special hat that makes a big impact in many ways".
In the photo, which was shared to the Sussex Royal Instagram, Harry and Archie are both bundled up against the cold as the prince cuddles his son in his arms.
Some highlights included Prince Harry dancing with Jane Goodall, the duo meeting Beyoncé, Harry clearing landmines and baby Archie meeting Archbishop Desmond Tutu in South Africa.
