All the details of Prince Harry and Meghan's visit to The Clooney's Italian villa.

In between all the handshaking, bridge opening and noble weddings, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, have spent the majority of the European summer holed up in their Oxfordshire home.

But according to American media, the newlywed Royals did recently manage to make an escape from the glare of the spotlight, ducking over to Italy for a few days to crash with George and Amal Clooney.

US Weekly reports that the Duke and Duchess flew to Lake Como on Thursday, where they spent three nights as guests at the couple’s villa.

“They spent the entire weekend at their home and enjoyed the privacy and security the Clooneys had for them there,” a source told the tabloid.

According to Italian magazine, Chi, the Royals helped look after the Clooney's 14-month-old twins, Ella and Alexander, during the stay and Prince Harry and George also played basketball with friends. The weekend was then reportedly capped off with a “gala dinner” for 15 people.

The actor and British human rights lawyer were among the famous guests at the Duke and Duchess' May nuptials in Windsor, and also attended the evening reception where, according to Page Six, George climbed behind the bar and served shots of his beloved brand of Casamigos tequila.

It's unclear how they came to be friends with Prince Harry and Meghan, but reports suggest Amal and the former Suits actress/women's rights advocate were introduced by a mutual friend.
