“Meghan and Amal have known each other for a while [and share] many interests,” a source told People. “Amal has been helping Meghan settle into London life. It was a very natural friendship from day one.”
Meghan also became close to Victoria Beckham after moving to England, Vanity Fair reported in February. “Victoria’s quite proud of the fact that she and Meghan have become chummy and seems to want people to know they are friends,” Vanity Fair‘s source said then. “Of course, if Meghan wears one of her outfits it will be great for business.”
Victoria, like Amal, got an invite to the royal wedding. Must be nice.
