'Frustrating': George Clooney slams treatment of Meghan Markle

Posted February 13, 2019

Meghan Markle has poured her heart out in a letter to her father, Thomas Markle, telling him he has broken her heart, accusing him of lying to the press and asking him to let her and husband Prince Harry "live our lives in peace".

George Clooney is a friend of Harry and Meghan and he and his human rights lawyer wife Amal attended the royal wedding in May past year (pictured) as well as visiting the couple at their Cotswolds home. He told reporters that "they're just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere...she is a woman who is seven months' pregnant and she is being pursued and vilified and chased in the same way Diana was and it's history repeating itself".

Meghan and Prince Harry announced last October they are expecting their first child in Spring 2019.

Over the weekend a newspaper published a deeply personal letter allegedly written by the duchess to her father in August, months after he missed her wedding.

Amal Clooney and George Clooney attended the wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle.

"I want nothing more than to sort this mess out". But could Clooney, who is father to twins Ella and Alexander, possibly be involved with the royal baby in a big way?

In the letter, Meghan also labelled her half-sister Samantha Markle as Thomas' "other daughter" and someone who she "barely knows", which has now prompted Samantha to retaliate.

Kensington Palace shared a photo of the royal couple as they arrived.

Meghan wrote the letter shortly after she tied the knot at St George's Chapel, in the grounds of Windsor Castle and mentioned his claims he has never asked her for money is "untrue". "I have only ever loved, protected, and defended you, offering whatever financial support I could, worrying about your health", she continued.

The move comes in reaction to a candid interview with People, during which five of Meghan's friends spoke anonymously about the heartache the Duchess had endured over the behaviour of her father.

Thomas, 74, branded Meghan's lengthy letter a "dagger to the heart" and dismissed her claims, showing the newspaper texts he believes prove he'd made attempts to communicate with his pregnant daughter and her spouse.

He then cancelled his trip to the United Kingdom for the nuptials and has subsequently made several public appeals calling for Meghan to fix their relationship - with the latest an interview accompanying the letter's publication in the British tabloid.
