George Clooney says Duchess of Sussex vilified like Princess Diana

George Clooney has said the Duchess of Sussex is being "pursued and vilified" and compared her treatment with that of Diana, Princess of Wales.

The 57-year-old actor spoke in the wake of the fall out from a United States magazine interview, in which Meghan's closest friends revealed she had written to her now-estranged father Thomas Markle in August, begging him to stop talking to the media.

The Hollywood star, who with his wife Amal, a human rights lawyer, attended Harry and Meghan's wedding in May a year ago, said that history was repeating itself in the case of Meghan and Diana. "Please allow us to live our lives in peace", before adding: "Please stop lying, please stop creating so much pain, please stop exploiting my relationship with my husband".

"Oh yes, I'll be the godfather of the royals apparently", he said before laughing and confirming, "No!"

She donned a stunning a cream outfit and showed off her growing baby bump at a posh gala do at the Natural History Museum.

By now, most people know that Prince Harry and Markle's son or daughter will not be growing up with the Cambridge children at Kensington Palace in London.

And referring to Thomas Markle's decision to offer parts of a letter written to him by Meghan to a newspaper, George Clooney added "you're taking a letter from a daughter to a father and broadcasting it everywhere".

Meghan Markle rests her hand on her stomach as she walks with Prince Harry.

Clooney's remarks came on the same day sources close to the former "Suits" star told Vanity Fair she is "at her wit's end" over her father's decision to speak with the media despite her pleading him to stop.

"Take a look at any website, and you'll see extraordinarily abusive comments aimed not only at people in the public eye but also other internet users". "It's wrong to put anyone under this level of emotional trauma, let alone when they're pregnant", one of the friends said.

It's claimed by the Daily Mail that the Duchess burst into tears when she heard of Samantha's plans to release a book, as she thought she was being "taken advantage of".

She goes on to complain that Mr Markle has made no attempt to contact her - and chastises him for falsely telling journalists he is the one who has been shunned - a criticism her father refutes.
