Clooney Strongly Supports Meghan, Warns Not To Let Her Meet The Same Fate As Diana

George Clooney's outspoken support for Meghan comes at a time when she needs it the most. The actor urges people to stop.

It is common knowledge that George Clooney is a close friend of Meghan Markle. Therefore, it was not surprising that he defended Meghan through the media backlash series she has been receiving the last couple of months. While giving interviews for the promotion of his Hulu series - Catch 22, the actor made his thoughts about the way media is portraying Meghan amply clear. The actor even compared her situation to that of Princess Diana, after her divorce.

The 57-year-old actor told Australia's Who magazine, "They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she’s been pursued and vilified." The actor referred to the late princess's death in 1997 as she was fleeing from the paparazzi, as he 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."

Clooney also gave some more news on the royals, but much happier in comparison. He said, “Oh yes, I’ll be the godfather of the royals apparently,” before clarifying it was a joke with an emphatic, “No!” He said that he had enough on his plate with his own children with Amal Clooney “I’m a father of twins, I have enough sh–– to deal with — literally!” Clooney said, according to Who.

The actor isn't the only one support Meghan. Five of Meghan's close female friends have spoken up after having kept quiet for a long time. A longtime friend and former costar said that they want “stand up against the global bullying we are seeing and speak the truth about our friend." She told People that, Meghan has been silently bearing all the untruths that the media is printing about her. "[...] 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."

The friend had a ton of kind things to say about Meghan. She gave us a little insight into how Meghan was behind the royal curtains. "When you see her at walkabouts when she crouches down to talk to the kids and genuinely has real conversations with people, that’s Meg,” says her former costar. “That’s how she crouches down with our kids at home. That’s how she plays with them. That’s how she engages with people and how she always has.”

It is heartening to see that despite all the media scrutiny and backlash, Meghan has a strong circle of friends who are there for her. With the incoming royal is expected sometime in April, and her husband, Prince Harry doting over her, she has a lot of love and happiness surrounding her.
