George Clooney Says Meghan Markle Is Being ‘Pursued And Vilified’ Like Princess Diana

"It's history repeating itself."

Meghan Markle is known for having lots of celeb friends, and now some of them are coming to her defence.

George Clooney, whose wife Amal is a good friend of the Duchess, has spoken out about the way he thinks Meghan has been treated since marrying into the royal family.

The 57-year-old was speaking to Australia’s Who magazine to promote his upcoming series, Catch-22, when he said it was “frustrating” to watch the way Meghan had been treated.

“They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she’s been pursued and vilified,” he said.

Referencing Princess Diana’s fatal car crash in 1997, during which she was being chased by paparazzi, George added:

“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.

“We’ve seen how that ends.”

George’s comments come after a number of rumours of a feud between Meghan and Kate Middleton circulated, as well as reports she had been given the nickname ‘Duchess Difficult’ in the palace.
