Amal Clooney and Meghan Markle have known each other for a while, but they’re now basically BFFs. According to People, the two met through a mutual friend and became closer when Markle moved to London to be with Harry. Mrs. Clooney, who lives nearby with her famous husband Geroge, was conveniently available to show Markle around the city. Fast forward, they bonded.
Sources believe that their friendship occurred organically, thanks to the fact that both women have many things in common. Clooney is a very accomplished attorney with a keen interest in human rights, women’s issues and the United Nations. All of these traits bring her together with Markle, who’s also worked with the U,N. and is a known advocate of human rights and women’s issues. “Amal has been helping Meghan settle into London life,” says a source. “It was a very natural friendship from day one.”
Clooney is a British-Lebanese citizen who was raised in the U.K. and who currently spends a lot of her time in Europe with her husband and their two kids.
They are flying back and forth between the U.S. and Europe, but everything is set up at the Lake Como house. They will spend as much time by the lake as they can. They always seem to love coming to the lake.
The Clooneys plan to spend the majority of their summer in Europe.
