George Clooney was reportedly “irritated” when Meghan Markle gave birth to Prince Archie.

The depth of the relationship between the Clooneys and the Sussexes has been a topic of speculation over the years, especially following Harry and Meghan’s lavish 2018 wedding.

The Hollywood superstar has enjoyed time with the Sussexes but, according to an insider, it’s George’s wife Amal and Meghan who share a closer bond.

Journalist Rachel Johnson quoted an insider at the time saying that the Clooneys claimed they “don’t” know Harry and Meghan when asked how they knew the newlyweds.

However, in the same year, a source from Kensington Palace suggested that Amal and Meghan were “much more friendly with each other and talk more regularly than George and Harry do”

Meghan reportedly considers Amal “like a confidante” and the two women had “become really close friends”.

As InStyle reports, an insider revealed: “It helps they’re both UK-based now, but they have been able to relate on a lot about their lifestyles, especially how to deal with being thrust into new situations in the public spotlight.”

Anyone wondering about George’s remarks at the Royal wedding may be inclined to disregard them, as in 2019, George was among the first to congratulate Harry and Meghan upon the birth of their first child, Archie.

Born on the same day as George himself, May 6, Archies birthday sparked rumours that the Hollywood actor would be named godfather.

In reaction to this, on his 58th birthday, George humorously said: “It’s a big day for me, and now some royal child has been born.”

He continued jokingly on Extra: “It’s kind of irritating, if you think about it. “”Cause I’ve already had to split [my birthday] with Orson Welles, Sigmund Freud, and now this [baby] comes in.

“I’m moving down the line very quickly.”

Despite any speculation, George maintains a close friendship with the couple.

When questioned about his relationship with the then-royal couple by the MailOnline, he said: “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.

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

The couples further solidified their bond by holidaying together after the Royal wedding, which saw a star-studded guest list including James Corden and Idris Elba.

The pro-Sussex biography, Finding Freedom, detailed the vacation where Harry and Meghan jetted off to Lake Como in Italy on George’s private plane.

The Clooneys’ villa, reportedly valued at around £100million, was their destination, with George recuperating from a motorcycle accident during the Sussexes’ stay.
