George Clooney compares Meghan Markle press coverage to Princess Diana
LOS ANGELES — George Clooney is frustrated by the way the media is treating Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, comparing it to how the media covered Princess Diana.
Clooney told reporters the Meghan is “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.”
He also commented on Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, revealing a reported letter from his daughter.
“You’re taking a letter from a daughter to a father and broadcasting it everywhere,” he said. “She’s getting a raw deal there, it’s irresponsible. I’m sort of surprised by that.”
Diana died in a car crash while being pursued by paparazzi in 1997.
Clooney and his wife attended the former Meghan Markle’s wedding to Diana’s son, Prince Harry, last year.
Clooney made the comments at the Television Critics Association conference in Pasadena, California. He is promoting his upcoming Hulu series “Catch-22.” NVG
