Amal Clooney might not be British royalty, but she’s helping the newly-inducted Duchess of Sussex get acclimated to her new life in London. The human rights lawyer and Meghan Markle “have known each other for a while,” a source told People, after first meeting through a mutual friend. They apparently got closer after the new royal moved to the U.K. last fall.
“Amal has been helping Meghan settle into London life,” an insider added to People of the powerful pair. “It was a very natural friendship from day one.”
The accomplished attorney and former actress share many interests, according to the insider. Human rights, women’s issues, and involvement with the United Nations are likely on the list. Markle has been a UN Women advocate since 2015 and Clooney has spoken at the UN several times in the past few years in an effort to make ISIS accountable for genocide.
Amal and her husband George have a home outside of London, just 30 minutes from Windsor Castle, where Meghan and Prince Harry’s royal wedding took place, People reports. The A-list couple was present for the May 19 nuptials and were arguably the best dressed pair on the guest list. (Amal stunned in a canary yellow Stella McCartney cocktail dress.)
In addition to attending the daytime ceremony, the Clooneys also attended the evening reception at Frogmore House. The couple let loose with the royal crowd at the private event, where George reportedly danced with both Markle and Kate Middleton and served shots of his own Casamigos tequila.
We can’t wait to see what the royals and Clooneys do together next.
