So much so, George has told his lawyers to rip up their $1 billion prenup! “George hates the idea that he’s got this contingency plan in place for a split,” says the insider.

“Getting rid of it is a way for him to show his gratitude to Amal for sticking with him through thick and thin and giving him a family,” continues the insider. “[Money] isn’t really something she cares about, but it’s certainly a romantic gesture and very old-fashioned, just like George.”
