Hollywood actor George Clooney has defended his friend, actress-turned-royalty, Meghan Markle. KAMI learned that Clooney claimed that the Duchess of Sussex was being harassed by the media like Princess Diana who died in a car accident while the paparazzi were chasing her.
"They're just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she's been pursued and vilified,” Clooney told WHO, an Australian magazine.
"She's a woman who is seven months pregnant and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was and it's history repeating itself," Clooney added, as reported by ABS-CBN news.
According to a report by Vogue, Clooney was frustrated over the news that an alleged letter from Markle to her father Thomas, was published.
"I can't tell you how frustrating that is,” Clooney said.
“You’re taking a letter from a daughter to a father and broadcasting it everywhere,” the actor added.
Recently, Clooney mentioned the late Princess Diana in one of his comments at the Screen Actors Guild in Los Angeles.
“Princess Diana is dead, and who should we see about that? The driver of the car? The paparazzi? Or the magazines and papers who purchased these pictures and make bounty hunters out of photographers?” Clooney said.
Clooney and his wife Amal attended the royal wedding of Markle and Princess Diana’s son, Prince Harry, last year.
The actor and the Duchess drew closer to each other since Amal and Markle became close friends. It has been reported by Grazia Daily that Amal helped Markle to “settle into London life” and that their friendship grew naturally.
