George Clooney has hit out at media treatment of the Duchess of Sussex, comparing it to that of Princess Diana and saying: “We’ve seen how that ends.”
The actor, who attended the royal wedding with wife Amal last year, said Meghan was a “seven months pregnant” woman who is being “pursued and vilified
It comes after the publication of a personal letter apparently written by the duchess to her father, Thomas Markle, telling him her heart was “broken into a million pieces” because he gave press interviews, fabricated stories and attacked Prince Harry.
Clooney, 57, made the comments after joking about a report suggesting he would be named godfather to Harry and Meghan’s baby.
Speaking at an event in Los Angeles, the Hollywood star said: “I do want to say, I just saw this piece.
“They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she’s been pursued and vilified.
“She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she is being pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was, and it’s history repeating itself. And we’ve seen how that ends.”
