Ahead of her star turn fronting ITV's Euro 2020 coverage, Seema Jaswal has revealed her royal connections and opened up about working with Prince Harry last summer.
The presenter will host ITV's coverage of this summer's tournament, which is taking a place a year later than planned, alongside the likes of footie legends Ian Wright, Gary Neville, Eni Aluko and Mark Pougatch.
Speaking in an exclusive OK! interview, the star has said working with the Duke of Sussex is one of her career highlights so far.
She explained: "In 2020 I had one of the best moments of my career when I hosted the Rugby League World Cup draw at Buckingham Palace with Prince Harry.

"It was unbelievable. It was in the throne room and even going into Buckingham Palace was amazing. Prince Harry was so lovely.
"We had so much fun doing the rehearsals – he was so relaxed and genuinely a nice man.
"Going to India was also an amazing time. I was so lucky my hubby was able to come with me. I couldn’t have done it without him."
Seema started out as a runner on Sky Sports News before cutting her teeth as a presenter on a shopping channel in the early hours of the morning.
But her career turning point came in 2015, when she was asked to present the Indian Super League – which meant Seema and her husband Ajay upped sticks and moved to India for 18 months.
From there she says her opportunities “snowballed”, and it’s safe to say she’s never looked back.
Opening up about her marriage, she reveals that the Euros will finish just days ahead of their tenth wedding anniversary.
"It’s our 10-year anniversary in July. The Euros finish five days before our anniversary so he has plenty of time to organise something special! He loves football and he’s a huge Liverpool fan, but I tend to remain impartial.
"I say to him I’m actually the dream wife because I watch Match Of The Day before he does! We always have a laugh about it. I’m the one who tells him when the fixtures are. "
