It will go down in history as one of the most glamorous celebrity weddings of all time.
But the honeymoon is over for Amal Clooney who jetted out to Greece today to advise the country’s government on how best to persuade Britain to return the Elgin Marbles.
Dressed in a simple white cardigan and khaki trousers, the new Mrs Clooney was spotted chatting happily to British Airways staff at the check-in gates at London’s Heathrow airport. She later landed in Athens to a flurry of media attention.
The 36-year-old, and her boss, Geoffrey Robertson QC, of London’s Doughty Street chambers, will hold a series of meetings with government officials during their stay, relating to the return of the Parthenon sculptures that are presently on display in the British Museum
It comes two weeks after Mrs Clooney married actor George Clooney in a lavish wedding in Venice, Italy, on September 27, which reportedly cost around £8million.
Since the ceremony, the human rights laywer has changed her professional name to Amal Clooney – losing her maiden name – according to a listing on the website of Doughty Street chambers.
It reads: ‘Amal Clooney is a barrister specialising in international law, extradition and criminal law.’
