Meghan Markle: George Clooney compares Duchess frenzy to Princess Diana

George Clooney and Meghan Markle

The Hollywood star is a friend of Harry and Meghan and he and his human rights lawyer wife Amal attended the royal wedding in May previous year.

"They're just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she's been pursued and vilified", Clooney told Australian magazine WHO.

"Women, in particular, are constantly pitted against and compared with each other in a way that reminds me of how people tried to portray Diana and me all the time as rivals, which is something neither of us ever really felt", she writes of Diana, who was married to Prince Charles when she was married to his brother, Prince Andrew. Now, it appears the reigniting of their feud and estrangement in the public eye has led to more tensions within the Royal Family as well.

"They are just so happy", he said.

Last week one paper published a highly personal letter they said was written by Markle to her estranged father in which she begged him to "stop lying ... stop exploiting my relationship with my husband".

She says: "I don't think Charles will stand for her being anything less".

The Gravity star went on to directly reference the alleged handwritten letter, in which Meghan reportedly accused her dad Thomas of having "broken my heart into a million pieces" by telling falsehoods to the media.

Harry and Meghan unveiled six dedications to the QCC during their tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga, and also welcomed commitment to the initiative by its latest member, Kiribati.

"So to hear about the attacks you've made at Harry in the press, who was nothing but patient, kind, and understanding with you, is perhaps the most painful of all".

"For some reason you choose to continue fabricating these stories, manufacturing this fictitious narrative, and entrenching yourself deeper into this web you've spun".

The media's treatment of Markle has not been unlike what Diana experienced, as Clooney noted.

However, it seems the relationship might be beyond fix if the Duchess is considering taking legal action against her dad.

Kensington Palace declined to comment.
