It’s a known fact that the Clooneys are firm friends with the royals. George and Amal Clooney were front and centre at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s wedding and they’ve continually be each other’s support systems since.
And as it happens, Amal in particular, has been Markle’s backbone during her pregnancy. Beyond attending her baby shower in New York in February, the Human Rights Lawyer is said to be offering her advice on celebrity and living in the public eye.
According to E! a source has revealed that, “Amal has been a wealth of knowledge on so many things and helped Meghan settle in. he’s given her advice on celebrity and living in the public eye. They’ve enjoyed sharing stories of travel and humanitarian causes. They often bounce ideas off of each other. Meghan goes to Amal for many things and really trusts her instincts. Amal adores Meghan and is thrilled to see her become a mother. They will be living very close to one another and hope to see each other often. They have an understanding and common ground that has really helped Meghan and provided her with support.”
We always knew Amal was a fountain of knowledge, so it warms our heart that she’s extending her smarts to Markle.
And let’s not forget that George had some pretty sweet things to say of Markle too in a TV interview with Good Morning Britain. A quick recap: “She’s a really kind and smart and intelligent young woman and they’re a really wonderful, loving couple. Most of it you can just shrug off and not pay attention to, but sometimes its unkind.”
All in all, this is what we call a solid friendship. Long may it continue…
