Amal Clooney and Meghan Markle are good friends. However, one tabloid claimed that the human rights lawyer had an agenda of why she wanted to be friends with the duchess.
Amal Clooney obsessed with Meghan Markle
Radar Online claimed that Amal Clooney is “obsessed” with Meghan Markle.
The tabloid claimed that Amal does everything to be with Markle. Also, one should note that George Clooney and Amal were among the celebrity guests during Prince Harry and Markle’s royal wedding.
“She does everything she can to spend time with her and keep in touch with her,” an alleged source said.
“Amal texts her, gives her parenting advice and how to follow fame advice. She wants to be friends with her more than anyone else because of the royalty and fame connection.”
How do Amal Clooney and Meghan bond?
The so-called source also shared how Amal Clooney and Meghan Markle spend their time together.
“Meghan and Amal have secret lunches and play dates and are quite good friends,” the insider added.
When the Duchess of Sussex celebrated her baby shower in New York, Amal was among the few who were invited.
Obsession rumor debunked
Although it’s true that Meghan Markle and Amal Clooney are close, the latter is not obsessed with the former.
Another source said that the two had known each other for quite some time. Also, the lawyer was helping Markle when she was still adjusting to her new life in London.
“Meghan and Amal have known each other for a while [and share] many interests,” an insider told People. “Amal has been helping Meghan settle into London life. It was a very natural friendship from day one.”
Amal and Markle were introduced to each other by a mutual friend when the former Suits star moved to the U.K. Markle had also become good friends with Amal’s husband, George Clooney.
George defended Markle from critics
When Meghan Markle was pregnant with Archie, the royal faced non-stop criticism. In one interview, the Ocean’s Eleven actor spoke about Markle and compared her to the late Princess of Wales.
“She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she is being pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was, and it’s history repeating itself,” George said.
However, not everyone agreed with George’s comparison between the two royals.
“No offence, but ain’t no one ever going to be on Princess Diana level,” one commented.
“It’s not the same as with Diana at all. Different ball game. Different generation. Social media was nothing like it is now. Diana was a different breed of royalty to meghan. Sorry George. You’re handsome as hell …. but wrong,” another added.
