There is no shortage of stories about Meghan Markle in the media, with plenty of criticism in the mix about her.
George Clooney recently pointed out similarities between Princess Diana and Meghan Markle.
A young boy, Prince Harry, who suffered a lot after the terrible death of his beloved mother seemed to have finally found happiness when he married Meghan Markle in 2018. But the racist and sexist media coverage of his wife increased, it only grew worse. So they decided to leave the country. And now Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have told their story.
We learned that Meghan experienced a severe mental health crisis while she was pregnant, but was denied support because it would make the royal family look bad. When Harry asked the palace to use its existing relationship with the tabloids to “call the dogs off”, he was told, “this is how it is”.

Meghan is being “treated and chased” by the media in the same way the late Princess Diana was, Hollywood superstar George Clooney has told an Australian magazine. George Clooney, who happens to be a close friend of Meghan Markle & Prince Harry, warned of “history repeating” itself with the increasingly feverish media attention on the couple.

“I do want to say, they’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere,” Clooney told Who magazine during an interview in Los Angeles. “The history repeating itself,” he added. “We’ve seen how that ends.” Clooney continued, addressing how Markle’s family matters have become public: “I can’t tell you how frustrating that is, just seeing them broadcast a letter from a daughter to a father, she’s getting a raw deal there and I think it’s irresponsible and I’m surprised by that.”

One can draw striking parallels between the Oprah interview and that given in 1995 by Princess Diana, which rocked the royal family at the time. As Harry said in a clip that was widely shared before the interview was screened, he was afraid of history repeating itself. His mother had spoken of the suicidal thoughts she experienced while pregnant with Harry, and the lack of support she received. Like Diana, Meghan felt trapped and alone and said she wasn’t even permitted to go out for lunch with friends sometimes.
When Diana died in a car crash that a jury ruled was partly the fault of the paparazzi, aged just 36, the British public vowed that this would never happen again. Yet we appear to have learned nothing from her death.
Markle’s friends offer their support: Five of Markle’s close friends recently spoke with PEOPLE, with one friend noting it was an effort to “stand up against the global bullying we are seeing and speak the truth about our friend.”
Another of Markle’s former co-stars added: “Meg has silently sat back and endured the lies and untruths,” explaining, “We worry about what this is doing to her and the baby. It’s wrong to put anyone under this level of emotional trauma, let alone when they’re pregnant.”
