Meghan Markle has a long list of A-list friends, including the barrister Amal Clooney. But after the Clooneys initially claimed that they didn’t know the Sussexes, what helped develop their friendship?

Meghan started a new life in the U.K. after marrying Prince Harry in 2018. Thankfully, she had made a lot of new friends, and Amal reportedly helped her adjust in London.

The Start of an Important Friendship

Amal and her husband, George Clooney, attended the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding. But Princess Diana’s ex-roommate Carolyn Bartholomew learned the A-list couple didn’t know the royal pair.

"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," Rachel Jonhson wrote on her article Sussex Fatigue, via Daily Mail. "'We don't,' the Clooneys answered brightly.

But after the royal marriage, an important friendship began.
