At Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in 2018, the couple were given a ‘choice pew’ next to Lady Carolyn Warren, who is married to John Warren, the Queen’s blood adviser, and opposite the son of Princess Margaret, Viscount Linley.

Surprisingly, it was later reported that the couple had told other guests that they didn’t know the happy couple at all, according to Rachel Johnson.

In 2020 it emerged that while Carolyn Bartholomew, Diana’s former roommate, was waiting for the wedding service to begin, she turned to the couple by her side and asked how they knew Harry or Meghan,’ Johnson wrote in the AirMail online publication at the time. “We don’t,” the Clooneys responded briskly.

Carolyn, who attended the wedding with her husband William, is Harry’s godmother and was one of three young women who shared Diana’s flat in Earl’s Court and knew of the secret when she met Charles for the first time.

George and Amal caused a stir when they arrived at the royal wedding and were among the exclusive list of 200 guests invited to party all night at Frogmore House. George reportedly danced with Meghan and Kate Middleton, 39.

Since the wedding, there have been conflicting reports about how the Clooneys knew the couple.

Finding Freedom, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s biography, claimed the Clooneys hosted the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on at least two occasions at their UK home in Sonning, Oxfordshire.

The book added that Harry and Meghan brought their dogs with them and that George and Amal loved taking friends to the lake.

“There they had a secluded area with a terrace and inside was a lounge decorated with traditional club woodwork, heavy curtains, dark velvets, plush armchairs and a bar.”

The biography also claimed that the Clooneys invited the royal family to join them at Lake Como just weeks after the royal wedding, flying out in George’s private jet.

During the three-day visit, a source said: ‘Meghan and Amal spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool and playing with the twins while George and Harry checked out George’s motorbike collection. Harry took one with one of his protection officers. George recently had an accident, so he hadn’t gotten back on his bike yet.

“The Duke and Duchess weren’t the only guests this weekend. Eugenie and her fiancé, Jack Brooksbank, were already at the villa when Harry and Meghan arrived, their visits briefly overlapping.

Meanwhile, Finding Freedom co-author Omid Scobie also revealed in an interview with Good Morning America that Harry and George bonded over their love of motorbikes and also played basketball together.

The book also revealed Amal chartered a private jet to fly Meghan home after her baby shower in New York in February 2019.

In 2018, an insider told People magazine that “Meghan and Amal have known each other for a while. [and share] many interests,” adding that the lawyer had helped the actress settle into her London life.

Asked about their friendship in a 2019 interview with the Mail, George was vague about how he first met the couple, saying: “I just got to know them.”

He added, “We don’t live too far from each other and we dine and be friends with them for all the reasons you’re friends with anyone.”

“They’re just really nice, fun, kind people, they’re a really loving couple and they’re going to be great parents.”
