Former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager said she might have become a royal sister-in-law -- if it weren't for some pesky sunglasses.
According to People and Us Weekly, Hager recalled her 2016 interview with Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex during Friday's episode of the "Today" show. According to Hager, sunglasses ruined her attempt to set the prince up on a blind date with her twin Barbara.
“He has really beautiful light eyes, which are sensitive to the sun. I know because my daughters have light eyes,” Hager said. “Prince Harry was like, ‘We have to wear sunglasses, don’t you think? I was like, ‘Well, if he says it’s okay!' "
This decision, however, thwarted Hager's royal aspirations, as she said the accessories put a “barrier between" her and the Duke of Sussex.
“I felt like maybe if he could see straight into my eyes,” she said. “That could have worked if my sunglasses weren’t blocking.
Hager ended her 2016 interview with the then-bachelor by mentioning her sister was single.
"I haven't even got a girlfriend," the Duke of Sussex said.
"But, you know what, I have a single sister, and she feels the same way," Hager said. "Listen, she's available. She's gonna kill me."
"We can talk maybe off air," the prince responded.
"Okay, I'll give you her number," Hager replied.
Hager later admitted in an interview with E! the set up "was sort of a joke."
"Obviously, my sister was humiliated that I would ever bring it up, but that was really a joke," she said "He's an awesome guy."
Prince Harry met his now-wife Meghan Markle on a blind date later that year.
“He said, ‘Let’s talk later,’ ” Hager said on Friday's show. “Then he got married to Meghan Markle.”
