The poor folks who live in their mansions along Lake Como likely just want to rest easy on the weekends, smoke some ciggs, fuck their lovers or spouses (or both!) and down carafes of red wine – y’know, the typical Italian pastimes. Alas, ever since George Clooney showed up years ago, it’s been nothing but Casamigos-branded shit and starfuckers galore – and that’s just when the Crawford-Gerbers show up! Well, now we can add Prince Hot Ginge and Duchess Meghan to the list of celebrities (fine…royalty…) who are invading the shores for the weekend.
Us Weekly says Harry and Meghan hung out with the Clooneys last weekend at their lakefront lair. A snitch delivered more details:
“The Clooneys had personally invited Meghan and Harry to their home at the beginning of the summer with an open invitation. George and Amal were so happy to host Meghan and Harry. Harry and George have a special bond and friendship.”
I’m sure that bond and friendship isn’t mainly focused on answering the question “So, bloke, have YOU ever boinked [insert any A-List blonde lady’s name here] on a stack of cash??” Actually, George and Amal attended the royal wedding earlier this year, and someone blabbed that George – in true Bethenny Frankel self-promotional fashion – hopped behind the bar at the reception to pour Casamigos (he and Rande Gerber created it) out for guests. I guess they’ll do anything for a cheaper open bar tab – royals, they’re just like us!
The Lake Como retreat is said to be a bit of real vacation for Harry and Megs since they’ve been spending most of the summer in their home in England, where they were previously visited by the newly engaged Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra. Hmmm…what on earth could newlyweds be doing at home to fill the time?! The trip was also the first time they met George and Amal’s twins and supposedly enjoyed the “privacy and security” of the Clooneys home since everyone knows the royal palaces employ staff that blab as much as, well, we would if we were on that payroll.
This is all fine and good, but I feel like we’re going to have to draw a line in the sand at what kind of Hollywood crowd can visit the royals without stinking up the royal reputation. Anyone who once held a Deal Or No Deal briefcase is automatically allowed in (what?? Prince Philipp deserves some eye candy after all these years), but the Hallmark Channel movie troupe is on a case-by-case basis!
