    Amal Clooney has proved she is a force to be reckoned with as she has taken on a new role as the Foreign Office’s Special Envoy.

    As part of the exciting position, Amal will campaign for media freedom across the globe, and safety for all journalists at work.

    However, the BBC has reported Meghan Markle’s 41-year-old BFF will not receive any payment for her work (could we love her any more?)

    Speaking about her latest venture, sited on E!, she said: ‘Through my legal work defending journalists, I have seen first-hand the ways in which reporters are being targeted and imprisoned in an effort to silence them and prevent a free media.

    ‘I welcome the UK Government’s focus on this issue at a time when journalists are being killed and imprisoned at record levels all over the world, and I look forward to working on new legal initiatives that can help to ensure a more effective international response.’

    The mother-of-two – who has twins Alexander and Ella with her actor hubby – has thrown support behind MAJOR legal dealings involving the press over the years.

    In 2015 Amal made up the legal team helping to release two Al Jazeera journalists jailed in Egypt, before she represented Nadia Murad, who was captured and tortured by Islamic State.
