George and Amal Clooney have a lot of celebrity pals, so it’s fair to assume they’ve had some very interesting guests around their dinner table over the years.
But Hollywood’s star couple might have outdone themselves with the guest list they’ve put together for an intimate catch up tonight.
They’ve invited Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to join them for dinner at their £10million mansion in leafy Sonning-on-Thames, Berkshire.
But the Duke and Duchess won’t be the only famous faces as Michelle Obama will also be attending.
The former First Lady is in the UK on the book tour for her new autobiography Becoming.
She will speak at London’s Southbank Centre this afternoon before heading to the countryside for the incredible sounding evening.
Mrs Obama was unable to attend the Royal Wedding back in May and there are reports she’s very keen to catch up with the couple.
A source told The Mail on Sunday : "Michelle is keen to see the Clooneys when she is in the UK, as she and Barack are very close to George.
"She also wants to see Harry and Meghan as she was very disappointed not to have been able to attend the wedding and wants to check in on them.
"She was instrumental in introducing Harry and Meghan and feels a responsibility to see how they are getting on, as well as celebrate the news they are about to become parents."
Earlier this week Mrs Obama offered some public words of support to Meghan after several reports of her upsetting royal staff .
Speaking to Good Housekeeping, she said: "Like me, Meghan probably never dreamt she’d have a life like this and the pressure you feel can sometimes feel like a lot.
"So my biggest pieces of advice would be take some time and don’t be in a hurry to do anything.
"I spent the first few months in the White House mainly worrying about my daughters, making sure they were off to a good start at school and making new friends before I launched into any more ambitious work.
"I think it’s OK – good, even – to do that."
The Clooneys are good friends with Meghan and Harry and were guests at their wedding back in May.
There are also rumours the actor and his lawyer wife could be Godparents to baby Sussex when he or she arrives in the spring.
