While Meghan Markle has led no ordinary life, from the red carpet to her engagement to Prince Harry, her first kiss was not unlike your typical story of young puppy love. Professional beatboxer Joshua Silverstein recently opened up about being the former actress’s first smooch, claiming that the royal-to-be made the first move.

Speaking candidly to Inside Edition, Joshua shared that the two locked lips at theatre camp when they were 13 years old. “She kissed me!” he revealed. “She worked up the courage and just made a move and I was probably surprised by it. I didn’t know it was going to happen but it happened. I don’t remember what the kiss felt like. It wasn’t my first kiss.” The musician also revealed that Meghan was just a normal teen, saying, “We were theater nerds. She was a sweet, sweet kid. It was theatre so we were all awkward in our own ways but she was a typical teenage girl.”

The former Suits star, who will walk down the aisle on May 19 at Windsor Castle, also went into some details about this first kiss in 2013 while chatting with Larry King. Appearing in the interview alongside her co-star Patrick J. Adams, Meghan answered without hesitation when asked who her first kiss was. “Joshua Silverstein! It was in LA. I was 13. It wasn’t in Catholic school. It was at a summer camp and I kissed him!”
