The Hollywood actor George Clooney has said that his friend the Duchess of Sussex is being "pursued and vilified" and subjected to the same treatment experienced by Diana, Princess of Wales.

Five of Meghan's closest friends also spoke out against " the global bullying" they are seeing against the duchess in a series of interviews with People magazine. "And we've seen how that ends".

Britain's famously aggressive press at first welcomed Markle into the royal fold when she and Harry tied the knot at a lavish Windsor Castle wedding last May, in a ceremony attended by Clooney and his human rights lawyer wife Amal.

Last weekend, some media published details of an intimate letter they said Ms. Meghan has sent her estranged father.

Samantha Markle, the half-sister of your favorite American TV star-turned-Duchess, has momentarily pivoted her attention away from her own family (and we're not just talking about Meghan, she's gone after her nephew, too) and set her sights on another American treasure: one George Clooney.




Prince Harry and his elder brother Prince William, the second in line to the throne, have had a strained relationship with the press since their mother, Princess Diana, was killed in a auto crash in Paris in 1997 while being chased by paparazzi on motorbikes.

"You're taking a letter from a daughter to a father and broadcasting it everywhere", he said.

So much so that royal aides at Kensington Palace are reportedly spending hours each week monitoring their social media accounts to moderate the sexist and racist comments aimed at Meghan, her sister-in-law Kate, and their fans.

Harry recently revealed that for a long time he struggled to cope with her death, and sought professional help a few years ago.

"I can't tell you how frustrating it is to see that", he said at a promotional event for his latest film.
