When Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan celebrated their wedding in May 2018, George and Amal Clooney were on the guest list. Now it comes out: The Hollywood star and his wife didn’t even know the royals.
Was that a show at Windsor Castle! The wedding party of Prince Harry, 36, and Duchess Meghan, 39, was a bit like the “Who’s Who” of showbiz. Invited were David Beckham and Victoria Beckham, Oprah Winfrey, Sir Elton John, James Blunt, Tom Hardy, Serena Williams, James Cordon, Carey Mulligan, half the cast of the TV series “Suits” and – last, but not least – George Clooney and his wife Amal Clooney. That came as a bit of a surprise if the Hollywood couple had not previously been associated with Harry and Meghan Markle. All the more interesting what comes out now.

In the same month and again in March, George Meghan defended against press attacks. “Sometimes it’s just unfair,” he said in an interview with Good Morning Britain. Then the press attacks you for ridiculous reasons. I think that’s unjust. Meghan does nothing but live her life. “

George and Amal Clooney have lived in Sonning, a small village in Berkshire, 60 kilometers west of London, since 2015. In an interview with the British Daily Mail in June 2019, Clooney revealed: “We don’t live far from each other, we have dinner together every now and then.
