George Clooney has spoken out in defense of Meghan Markle in response to the constant negative reports about her in the media.

 Clooney was speaking to Australian outlet, Who Magazine, promoting his new Hulu series 'Catch-22' when he compared the treatment of Markle to that of the late Princess Diana.

“They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she’s been pursued and vilified,” Clooney told reporters.

“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.”

“We’ve seen how that ends,” he added.

Another friend and costar, who has chosen to remain anonymous, has also spoken out in defense of the Dutchess of Sussex:

“Meg has silently sat back and endured the lies and untruths,” they told PEOPLE.

“We worry about what this is doing to her and the baby,” they added.

“It’s wrong to put anyone under this level of emotional trauma, let alone when they’re pregnant.”

Are the British media deliberately trying to smear Markle or do you believe all of the rumors? Let us know.
