What Does Meghan Markle Admire Most About Amal Clooney?

Before she started dating George Clooney most of us did not know Amal Alamuddin. Similarly, before she started dating Prince Harry, most of us were unfamiliar with the name Meghan Markle. But, when each of these women stole the hearts of one of the world’s most eligible bachelors, they also stole the fantasies of hundreds of thousands of ladies. It’s no wonder we are curious about them.

Similar in age Amal, 42, and Meghan, 37, didn’t know each other before a year or so ago. And, when they did meet, they fast became friends sharing an interest in human rights, fashion, and more. They each happen to now be married to one of the most famous men on earth. Amal is a new mother. Meghan will be one, shortly.

A mutual interest in human rights

Born in Beirut Amal’s name is Arabic for “hope.” Her family moved to England in the 1980s while she was a young girl. She’s a graduate of St. Hugh’s College, Oxford.

Amal went on to study at New York University School of Law. She passed the New York State bar in 2002, and in Whales in 2010. In 2014, she declined a United Nations commission opting to instead take a look at possible rules of war violations in Gaza. She is currently a British lawyer with Doughty Street Chambers focusing on international law and human rights issues.

Meghan was born and raised in Los Angeles. She became a model and actress while studying at Northwestern University. She is probably best known for her role as the paralegal Rachel Zane in Suits.

Meghan is an outspoken feminist and became a United Nations Women’s advocate in 2015 often addressing gender inequalities. Last December, Amal received the 2018 UNCA Global Citizen of the Year Award for her humanitarian work.

Fashion icons

Meghan’s fashion sense rose in the ladies’ clothing world when she developed her own Canadian clothing collections while living in Toronto in 2015 and 2016. Her lines were instantly a hit. She has noted Vogue Paris editor Emmanuelle Alt as her inspiration of style. When she began dating Prince Harry and following their engagement, a lot more scrutiny followed her with what was mostly an appreciated choice in clothing and fashion.

Meghan has recently stated how much she admires Amal’s fashion sense.

“Amal has impeccable taste and Meghan has been clearly been influenced by her,” said a source close to Meghan in a Best Life interview.

“She now wears clothes from the very same designers Amal does, something she didn’t do before she was a member of the royal family,” the source continued.

Being in the continuous spotlight, it is important that each lady dress at the top of her game even while pregnant, or as a new mom. Sharing some designer tastes, they are also both said to shop at William Vintage in London.

Family and friendship

Although the public doesn’t have an exact date for the birth of the new royal family member, nor do we know the baby’s gender, we do know that he, or she, should be coming late in April or early in May. And while the newborn will have royal cousins to grow up with, the baby may also develop friendships with the young Clooney twins.

The families will live, at least part-time, within about 30 minutes of each other after Harry and Meghan moving to Frogmouth House at Windsor Castle. The Clooney’s English home is just outside of London.

The friendship between Meghan and Amal is understandable. The two have a lot in common including age, family, fashion, and beliefs in equality and human rights. Just what Meghan admires most in Amal and vice versa is unclear, but they obviously maintain a mutual admiration for one another.
