Clooneys didn’t know Harry & Meghan at the wedding! George and Amal Clooney confessed they didn’t know the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moments before the royal wedding, it is claimed. Hollywood actor George, 59, and human rights barrister Amal, 42, were among the 600 guests who witnessed Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle, 39, exchange vows at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, in May 2018.
In a sign of their apparent closeness to the couple, the Clooneys were given a ‘prime pew’ next to Lady Carolyn Warren, who is married to John Warren, the Queen’s bloodstock adviser, and opposite Princess Margaret’s son Viscount Linley. However the Clooneys reportedly told other guests they didn’t know the happy couple well at all, according to Rachel Johnson.
‘There’s a story doing the rounds that while Carolyn Bartholomew, Diana’s former flatmate, was waiting for the wedding service to start, she turned to the couple alongside her and asked how they knew Harry or Meghan,’ Johnson writes in online publication AirMail. ‘”We don’t,” the Clooneys answered brightly.’
Carolyn, who attended the wedding with husband William, is Harry’s godmother and was one of three young women who shared Diana’s Earl’s Court flat and was privy to the secret when she first met Charles. She was given one of the best seats in the house, opposite Prince William and Prince Charles.
Johnson added there were plenty of other celebrity invitees, including Oprah Winfrey, James Corden, and David and Victoria Beckham who ‘could not possibly be old and dear friends of the bridal couple’.
Oprah Winfrey, Serena Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian were seated near the Clooneys while the Beckhams, James Corden and his wife were further away. George and Amal caused a stir when they arrived at the royal wedding and were among the exclusive 200-strong guest list invited to party the night away at Frogmore House. George is said to have danced with both Meghan and Kate Middleton, 39.
