Amal Clooney ‘helped’ Meghan Markle settle into London life

According to People Magazine, Amal and Meghan have “known each other for a while” and they grew closer when she moved to London last year. Huh.

Amal Clooney is more than just a wedding guest to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle — she’s the new royal’s confidant.

“Meghan and Amal have known each other for a while [and share] many interests,” an insider tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, on stands Friday. The two were introduced by a mutual friend and got closer after the Suits star, 36, moved to the U.K.

“Amal has been helping Meghan settle into London life,” the source continues. “It was a very natural friendship from day one.”
