We do, although I'm not planning afternoon teas at the Savoy just on the off-chance of running into him!

Hey George, if you're reading this, I'm checking out a new speakeasy in Shoreditch tomorrow night. There's a website you need to find that has a photo of a desk and on that desk is a post it note with a phone number; you call that number and they'll give you the code to get in and . . . oh ok, just meet you outside the tube station around 8-ish, ok?

Funny tweet here

"I just need to wait until I'm 36 to get married and then I can marry a hot Hollywood actor like George Clooney or Benedict Cumberbatch too!"

Mm, well the tweeter seemed to know a lot about the protesters in the area yesterday, and I think it's entirely possible, since Amal was probably at the IBA offices yesterday just up the road.

It's a random group of folk to name otherwise........and if she's a regular, she's not likely to expand, or they may not have her back...........ah, British diplomacy............

People.com on Afternoon tea..........

http://www.people.com/article/george-clooney-amal-step-out-new-case



George and Amal Clooney Step Out in London – and She Reveals Her Next Legal Case

They both have crazy-busy work schedules, but newlyweds George and Amal Clooney are still making time for romance.

The newlyweds enjoyed a date at London's Savoy hotel Wednesday afternoon, leaving fellow diners starstruck at their surprise arrival.

"I think I was in a parallel universe!" says an onlooker, who was dining with her 80-year-old father at the time. "They just walked through the lobby and disappeared into another bar."

Another diner at the 125 year-old London landmark added on Twitter: "Tea at the Savoy, first a Downton Abbey actor walks in, then Stephen Fry topped off by George Clooney & new wife ..."

But Amal Clooney, 36, has plenty on her plate besides tea and cakes. The human-rights lawyer has taken on the case of Egyptian-Canadian journalist Mohamed Fahmy, who has been incarcerated in Egypt since December for what Amal describes as "simply reporting the news."

In a statement released through her law firm Doughty Street Chambers in London, Clooney claims the Al Jazeera reporter's trial was "fundamentally unfair" and that his imprisonment is "a travesty of justice."

Worse, she says his 7-year prison sentence has become "a great danger to his health" – partly because Fahmy suffers from the liver disease hepatitis C and cannot obtain the specialist treatment he requires from behind bars.

"He has also suffered a permanent disability in his right shoulder due to an injury exacerbated during his detention," Clooney adds. "He will require a series of complicated correctional bone surgeries that also require extensive recovery and support not readily available in prison."

Clooney and her colleague Mark Wassouf are waiting to hear if Fahmy will be released on compassionate grounds so that he can receive the treatment he needs. His appeal is scheduled for Jan. 1.

Meanwhile, George Clooney, 53, is prepping for two upcoming movies – Money Monster, about a financial guru held hostage, and Hail Caesar!, the Coen brothers' next comedy (plus he's producing Sandra Bullock's film Our Brand Is Crisis) – so it'll be a very busy holiday season for the couple.

Tea at the Savoy, first a Downton Abbey actor walks in, then Stephen Fry topped off by George Clooney & new wife ..."   from the People quote.  Why is it they (People) will mention Stephen Fry, George and Amal, but it's "a Downton Abbey  actor"..

and no photos of any of the above.  Questioning the reliability of the article.  Just MO.

She probably has been working on this case, she has eight at the moment . That was said when she turned down the other offer.

No, they wouldn't, Annemarie. Making this a safe haven for folks.

Pretty standard stuff in decent hotels......it didn't happen either in the hotel where I saw the Monuments Men cast before the premiere.

I need a major brain adjustment... read "Clooney and her colleague Mark Wassouf"  and thought they were talking about George.  Still takes me a moment to realize Amal changed her name.

I assume the tweeter recognized the DA actor but didn't know his name.

On first read, I thought they were all together. But just a day date for the newlyweds.

Amal Clooney took her husband to the Savoy for lunch, then got back to work

Have you missed Amal Clooney in the midst of the Cumbercrazy this week? I have! I miss Amal Clooney so much whenever she’s not around. I imagine her standing over my shoulder, tossing her blowout over my work. Well, we’re in luck! People Magazine has a story about what George and Amal Clooney have been up to this week, thank God. So, what’s Amal up to? Just having a late lunch at the Savoy with her husband, and scheduling a new case!
They both have crazy-busy work schedules, but newlyweds George and Amal Clooney are still making time for romance. The newlyweds enjoyed a date at London’s Savoy hotel Wednesday afternoon, leaving fellow diners starstruck at their surprise arrival.
“I think I was in a parallel universe!” says an onlooker, who was dining with her 80-year-old father at the time. “They just walked through the lobby and disappeared into another bar.”

[From People]
Taking on a case of a journalist imprisoned because of a lack of free press? Well well… it looks like Amal is aiming to be interviewed by Jon Stewart on The Daily Show (SHE SHOULD TOTALLY DO THAT). It’s good that she’s aligning herself with this kind of case – journalists around the world are becoming targets of death threats and imprisonment more frequently. More journalists are being killed in war/conflict zones every year as well.
Sidenote: my mom actually said this to me: “We’ve had a rough couple of months, haven’t we? My boyfriend George Clooney got married and your boyfriend Benedict Cumberbatch got engaged.” And it really struck me: for some women, George Clooney = Benedict Cumberbatch. Oh God… what if Benedict married Sophie Hunter in some kind of decadent, thirsty, splashy wedding spectacular like Clooney’s wedding? GAH!!!!

For those of us who haven't been to the Savoy, Amal's style blog has some pics. There is also some pics of the cockatoos on the tables for the London wedding party (the one thing Carmen Pedrosa didn't seem to like about that party.)

It's owned by someone other than Amal.
I admire the high quality of the research and the professional
manner in which the blog site is managed.

There's a picture of Amal in a biker style leather jacket
together with a fabulous necklace. She's certainly got
her own style which I like.

Just saw the white floral dress full frontal view for the first time.  Good grief Charlie Brown.. that front hemline just about covers the essentials.  Good thing there wasn't a strong wind!

If you've got good legs then show 'em off I say.
My Mother had good legs right up until her 80's.

Shirley Bassey was on TV here in UK last night in a sparkly black dress, calf length. I've never seen her legs before and they are great !
She's going to be singing Goldfinger on our Strictly Come Dancing soon and gave a sample of her voice with "Goldfinger" while sitting on the sofa ! Her voice sounded great.

Well George has said before he's a leg man. Maybe she likes showing off her legs for him and is proud that they are so toned. Very slim ... but toned.

Joanna, I haven't heard Shirley Bassey sing in so long. She has such a terrific and distinctive voice. Glad to hear she still sounds great.

Yeah, and I don't think it was purely a style choice.

It was her wedding weekend. George is a leg man. They weren't staying together...

We can all do that math. I don't think she was getting him revved up so they'd spend the honeymoon choosing furniture for the new estate. She doesn't just use that noggin for the law.

So if afternoon tea considered lunch?

I get so confused about this.  I'm picturing dainty tea cups, floral table linens, flowers?  Perhaps some light sandwiches with the crusts cut off?

No Lorna.....Lunch is at mid day or 1 o'clock ish.

Then afternoon tea would be around 3 to 4 o'clock and
more or less as you imagined with dainty sandwiches and cakes.
And a choice of teas served from a teapot with additional
hot water to keep it hot for a second cup.
The latest treat now is
afternoon tea, as above, followed by a glass of champagne.

It's all quite relaxing when it's all done for you in
pleasant surroundings.

Come to England and experience it !

Thanks for the clarification!

As to visiting England?  Definitely on my bucket list.  Was in Europe some years ago but we didn't get to England so it will happen just not sure when.  I've got to get to Australia first!  Have several munchkins I have to meet!  Ha!
