George Clooney has had enough of the invasive press coverage surrounding Meghan Markle. During a promotional press panel for his upcoming Hulu series Catch-22, Clooney defended his close friend, stating that the Duchess of Sussex has been “pursued and vilified.”
“They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere,” the 57-year-old actor said, according to People. “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.”
In 1997, Princess Diana of Wales, the first wife of Prince Charles and mother to Prince William and Prince Harry, died following a tragic car crash in Paris. She and two other passengers had been attempting to shake off paparazzi photographers.
“We’ve seen how that ends,” Clooney said.
