Princess Diana’s legacy haunts Meghan: George Clooney and Harry express concerns for her safety


Meghan’s close friend, George Clooney has pointed out how Princess Diana was and Meghan is, being targeted by the media.

Five months ago, Harry said he worried his wife, Meghan, would meet the same devastating fate as his late mom Princess Diana.

It’s an alarming instance of déjà vu Prince Harry may have seen coming. After attending a gala in New York City on May 16, Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, along with her mom Doria Ragland, were involved in a “near catastrophic car chase” with “highly aggressive paparazzi,” according to a rep for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road.

George Clooney also came in support of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The actor—who happens to be a good friend of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, attended their wedding in May 2018 with his wife, Amal Clooney—defended his friend, Meghan.

“I really want to say, these people (media tabloids) are just chasing and writing negative & irrelevant stuff about Meghan Markle everywhere. She’s been pursued and vilified just like her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana,” he told Who magazine, per People.

George Clooney also addressed how the media around the world have treated Meghan Markle since she joined the royal family. According to reports, the actor said, “They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere”, as previously reported by The Royal UK.

He further added, “She’s a strong woman but 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 tragically that ends,” Clooney continued, giving reference to Princess Diana’s tragic death in a car crash in 1997.

Eerily, the incident—of which the couple’s two children Archie Harrison, 4, and Lilibet Diana, 23 months, were not present. “I was terrified,” Harry—who previously stepped back from royal duties in 2020—said in their Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan. “I didn’t want history to repeat itself.”

Harry was just 12 years old when his mom was killed along with Dodi Fayed in a car crash that occurred in Paris’ Ponte de l’Alma tunnel, with their driver slamming into a pillar as they were speeding away from paparazzi.
