“She wants to be friends with her more than anyone else because of the royalty and fame connection,” the source told Radar.
“Meghan and Amal have secret lunches and play dates and are quite good friends”.
Amal and George share 2-year-old twins Ella and Alexander.
George has very publicly spoken out against the treatment of Markle by the press.
Clooney says the Duchess is being “pursued and vilified” and compared her treatment with that of her mother-in-law, Diana, Princess of Wales.
“They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she’s been pursued and vilified.
“She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she is being pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was, and it’s history repeating itself.
“And we’ve seen how that ends.
“I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to see that.
“You’re taking a letter from a daughter to a father and broadcasting it everywhere.
“She’s getting a raw deal there, it’s irresponsible.
“I’m sort of surprised by that.”
