In an interview for this month’s US Vogue, Amal spoke in depth about her work and relationship with husband George, revealing details such as the fact he wooed her by writing her emails in the voice of his dog Einstein and that George calls their twins, Ella and Alexander, ‘the knuckleheads’.
On the subject of love, she said, ‘It’s the one thing in life that I think is the biggest determinant of happiness, and it’s the thing you have the least control over. Are you going to meet this person? I was 35 when I met him. It wasn’t obvious that it was going to happen for me. And I wasn’t willing or excited about the idea of getting married or having a family in the absence of that.’ Being with George, she said, ‘felt like the most natural thing in the world’.
