Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding wasn’t as fancy as Kate and William’s or the Queen and Prince Philip’s. Yet, it had a very extensive guests’ list that included a big number of celebrities.

Amal and George Clooney, Oprah, Idris Elba, Elton John, and James Cordon – they were all invited to the royal wedding.

Were they all Meghan Markle’s friends? Not exactly. One expert claims that Meghan Markle chose her wedding guests with a hidden agenda in mind.

Meghan’s clever move

Royal biographer Andrew Morton knows a lot about the royal family as he wrote a number of books on its members.

The author shared with Vogue an interesting observation about the Duchess of Sussex. He noted that Amal and George Clooney’s invitation to the royal wedding, as well as Oprah and other celebs' presence amongst the guests, was a clever move made by Meghan.

Morton noted that Markle invited the people she didn’t know so well to gain their support in the future. He said:

Meghan is smart and she showed her purpose at her wedding by the people she invited. She invited people she didn’t know well – Oprah, George and Amal Clooney the big Hollywood hitters. It was a clever move because they are the ones who have stood up for her when she has been attacked.

Supportive friends

We have to agree with the royal biographer as it’s evident that the Duchess’ trick worked like magic. How many times George Clooney supported Meghan Markle or Oprah sang her praises after the wedding? A lot.

The Hollywood superstar claimed that the media is 'unjust' towards Meghan as she didn't do anything wrong. Oprah supported George's words, noting that the Duchess has a 'wonderful and loving heart.'

Moreover, it looks like Markle gained a genuine friend in the face of Amal Clooney. It’s believed that the British barrister supported the former actress throughout her pregnancy and gave her loads of advice.

Amal is also known for her humanitarian side so it’s not surprising that the two women managed to form a strong bond. So it appears that Meghan’s plan worked even better than she thought it would.
