More details have surfaced about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s private Italian getaway with George and Amal Clooney in Lake Como this weekend. In addition to bonding at the Clooneys’villa in Laglio, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also enjoyed hangouts by the pool, a private cruise, and indulgent dinners, Chi magazine reports. George even showed off his motorcycle collection to Harry and played him in a basketball game.
“Amal and Meghan spent much of their days lounging by the pool together and, of course, playing with the twins,” royal correspondent Omid Scobie told. The two are said to have known each other for a while after being introduced by a mutual friend.
On Saturday night, the Clooneys reportedly had a dinner party featuring food from their favorite restaurant, Il Gatto Nero. Scobie added that George “threw on several banquets” for his royal guests during their stay, but the actor’s hospitality didn’t stop there.
“Clooney actually [flew] them over to Como from London on his private jet and then an unmarked motorcade transported them from the airfield to the home with, of course, their protection officers in tow,” he told ABC.
News of Harry and Meghan’s stay with the Clooneys broke yesterday, according to a report from Chi Magazine. “They spent the entire weekend at their home and enjoyed the privacy and security the Clooneys had for them there,” a source told the tabloid.
If George and Amal’s dinner parties were anything like the royal wedding reception (where the actor reportedly poured shots of tequila for guests and danced with Kate Middleton), Harry and Meghan were definitely in for a treat.
