George Clooney wants you to know that his and Amal's friendship with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is totally normal. "I’ve just known them," he said nonchalantly in a recent interview with Daily Mail (per Town & Country).
The Clooneys famously attended the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal wedding last May and even hung out with Harry's dad, Prince Charles, at a fancy dinner at Buckingham Palace, but royal ties aside, the two couples' relationship is a lot more low-key than most would assume (at least, according to George).
"We live not too far from one another and we have dinners and stuff and we’re friends with them for all the reasons that you’re friends with anybody," George Clooney explained to Daily Mail. "They’re just really nice, fun, kind people, they’re a very loving couple, and they’re going to be great parents." (Harry and Meghan recently welcomed their first child, Archie, in early May.)
These Clooney-Sussex dinners might be a little posher than your typical double date, though. Back in August, George and Amal reportedly hosted Harry and Meghan at their home on Lake Como for a weekend that included "several banquets" with food from the Clooneys' favourite restaurant. The stay also included a ride on George's private jet, poolside hangouts, and a tour of the actor's motorcycle collection, ABC News reported at the time.
