Meghan Markle has turned to her Hollywood friends for support as she struggles to adjust to life as a royal, it’s claimed.
The Duchess of Sussex, 37, is said to be relying heavily on George Clooney and his wife Amal for advice, while her newfound friendship with Rihanna is also coming in handy.
Since meeting Prince Harry she’s had to contend with public family feuds, a rumoured spat with Kate and William and stories about her so-called “diva” behaviour.
A source told Heat magazine: “Meghan feels that the palace’s way of transitioning her from Hollywood actress to British royal did her no favours, and now she’s prepared to go over their heads and speak to the people she thinks can help her best.
“You can’t get much more of a publicity powerhouse than George Clooney, or, more to the point a cleverer woman than Amal.”
The A-list couple are said to be giving the new mum parenting tips over dinners at the palace.
They’re also brainstorming ideas with her about how to handle her relationship with Kate and which charities she should work with, it’s reported.
