George Clooney has defended his friend, the Duchess of Sussex, after a weekend which saw her father share parts of a private letter between the two with the press.
The Oscar winner said Meghan Markle was “being pursued in the same way, the Princess of Wales, Diana was”, adding “we’ve seen how that ends”.
The actor and director was speaking at a press conference in Australia as he promoted his new film. Clooney told the reporters that “they’re just chasing Meghan everywhere. She is a woman who is seven months pregnant and she is being pursued and chased in the same way Princess Diana was. It’s history repeating itself”.
The star went on to add more things in his interview.
George said: “We have actually seen how it all ends. I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to see that. You all are taking a letter from a daughter to a father and broadcasting it everywhere. Meghan’s getting a raw deal, it’s irresponsible. I’m sort of surprised by that”.
