What did you do this weekend? If you’re like us, you probably woke up at an ungodly hour (or perhaps never went to sleep) in order to watch the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle livestreamed. While you gawked over the fancy fascinators and swooned over the good prince in military dress, you undoubtedly noticed two very familiar/famous faces in attendance: George and Amal Clooney. And just like that, we’ve all got another solid reason to envy this power couple.

Apparently — a source told People — this wasn’t a gratuitous celebrity invite. Rather, Markle and Amal are close. Because of course they would be. It should be a law of the universe that when two women as phenomenal as these exist, they find and empower each other in life. And, happily, that seems to be the case with the royal bride and her human-rights-attorney friend. “Meghan and Amal have known each other for a while,” the source told People, noting that the women share “many interests.”
Not surprisingly, Amal stunned in a bright yellow Stella McCartney dress accessorized with a matching wide-brimmed hat. George didn’t look so shabby either, sporting a classic gray suit with a pale pink and yellow tie to complement his lovely wife’s ensemble.
Although many of Markle and Harry’s American friends flew in to attend the wedding — other celebrity guests include Markle’s Suits costar Patrick J. Adams, her BFF Priyanka Chopra and tennis icon Serena Williams — the Clooneys didn’t have to go far. They have a home less than an hour from Windsor Castle, where the ceremony was held.

Perhaps this means we’ll be seeing more of the dynamic duo of Markle and Amal, now that the former Suits star will be spending most of her time in the U.K. as part of the royal family. Hey, now that we’ve got our fairytale royal wedding out of the way, is a fairytale friendship too much to ask for?
