    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are known to be close friends with George and Amal Clooney, with the royal couple even holidaying at the Clooney’s luxurious Italian villa earlier this year, and of course attending their May wedding.

    In fact, the couples are reportedly so close that the Clooneys even handed over the name of their celebrity nanny ahead of the birth of the future royal baby as a recommendation.

    It’s hardly surprising therefore that the Hollywood couple have got the royals’ backs and have been rallying behind Meghan Markle especially over the past few months.

    The Duchess of Sussex has had a turbulent year as a royal, from being the subject of an onslaught of online bullying to her estranged family slandering her name to sell stories.

    This is something that George Clooney couldn’t help but talk about while promoting his new Hulu series, Catch-22.

    According to Who magazine, the 57-year-old actor didn’t hold back when asked about his friend Meghan Markle, comparing her treatment to her late mother-in-law Princess Diana’s.

    ‘They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she’s been pursued and vilified,’ he explained. ‘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.’

    Concluding his statement with a warning, George stated: ‘We’ve seen how that ends.’

    We could all do with a friend like George Clooney.
