Are George and Amal Clooney renewing their vows? That’s the premise of a tabloid report that claims the actor caught “wedding fever” while attending Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s nuptials. After investigating, Gossip Cop can separate fact from fiction on this story.
According to the New Zealand edition of Woman’s Day, the Clooneys’ “recent attendance at the royal wedding gave their relationship a much-needed jolt.” It’s specifically alleged that George was “so overcome while watching Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex get hitched that he popped the question to his surprised wife.” A so-called “friend” is quoted as saying, “He was so happy at the wedding that he got down on bended knee to ask Amal to marry him again that night. It started as a joke, but now they’re going ahead with the plan.”
The outlet contends the couple will “mark their upcoming anniversary in September with a two-day celebration at their Lake Como palazzo.” Claims the purported pal, “They will hold a 30-minute ceremony, but it will be more a celebration of their love.” This supposed source continues, “They each plan to give a speech on how their life has changed since they got married and they will renew their commitment to each other in front of their children.” Maintains the publication, “Such is the power of a royal wedding.”
While there’s no disputing Prince Harry and Markle’s big day was a moving event, it’s telling that not one reputable media resource has reported that George “proposed” again to “his ray of sunshine at the royal nuptials.” In fact, People‘s report on the wedding reception shared that George helped bartend during the evening bash, but said nothing about a “romantic surprise” from him during the festivities. Us Weekly similarly reported that George was handing out shots of his Casamigos tequila at the party, but made no mention of a “shock proposal” to Amal.
As for the Clooneys now planning a “wedding rerun,” while the tabloid relies on an anonymous and untraceable “friend,” a rep for the couple exclusively tells Gossip Cop on the record that this story about a royals-inspired vow renewal is “not true.” It’s worth noting this is now the second time the magazine has spread misinformation related to a milestone for the pair. Back in February, we busted Woman’s Day for falsely claiming George rented a private island for Amal’s 40th birthday. Just as that didn’t happen, fans shouldn’t expect the Clooneys to renew their vows for their upcoming anniversary, either.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
