There are many things that make George Clooney one of the most likeable Hollywood A-listers on the planet: his political activism and humanitarian work, extreme generosity – he reportedly once gave 14 of his friends $1m (£750,000) each – and the fact that he apparently likes a party, because who doesn’t?

If rumours are to be believed, then he was part of the life and soul of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding, along with Serena Williams who reportedly slayed at beer pong.

​Clooney, who is understood to have been among the select 200 guests invited to the evening reception at Frogmore House, is said to have danced with both Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. Now, it’s rumoured that he was also spotted pouring shots of his own billion-dollar tequila brand, Casamigos, from behind the bar.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

Sources reportedly told Entertainment Tonight that at one point Clooney jumped behind the bar and began serving drinks.

“George hopped behind the bar and was actually bartending for a bit. He poured Casamigos drinks and shots and got everyone dancing,” one source said.

Casamigos started as an idea between Clooney and friend Rande Gerber while they were in Mexico. The company was sold to Diageo for up to $1 billion (£790 million) in June 2017.

People are speculating that the connection between Casamigos and the royal wedding came through 31-year-old Jack Brooksbank, who will marry Harry’s cousin Princess Eugenie in October, and who also just so happens to be an ambassador for the brand.

Gerber said he and Clooney researched extensively to create a tequila they could drink all day without getting a hangover.

Prior to the Diageo sale the pair said they still taste every batch of the tequila, which is sold in 20 countries and doubled its volume of sales in 2016.
