Clooney says Meghan being harassed just like Diana

George Clooney and Meghan Markle

Clooney, a close friend of Markle and husband Prince Harry, warned of "history repeating" itself with the increasingly feverish media attention on the expectant royal couple.

Last month, five of Ms. Meghan's close friends told People magazine the duchess had endured "lies and untruths" and "global bullying" and they anxious how this would affect her and her baby.

"I do want to say, I just saw this piece.They're just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere", Clooney said at the International Press Conference on Monday, according to Who.

The actor, who with his wife Amal, a human rights lawyer, attended Harry and Meghan's wedding previous year, said that history was repeating itself in the case of the duchess and Diana.

Betway's Alan Alger said: "There is serious momentum gathering behind the idea that Meghan Markle is expecting twins and having cut the odds on that happening earlier in the week, sustained support has seen us significantly shorten the price again".
