Mr Clooney described Meghan as “seven months pregnant” as he warned Prince Harry’s wife was being “pursued and vilified”, comparing her treatment to that of Princes Diana. The hint suggests that Meghan’s baby could be born earlier in April than previously thought. The Hollywood actor – who is close friends with the Sussexes – said: “I do want to say, I just saw this piece.
“They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she’s been pursued and vilified.
“She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she is being pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was, and it’s history repeating itself. And we’ve seen how that ends.
“I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to see that.
“You’re taking a letter from a daughter to a father and broadcasting it everywhere.
“She’s getting a raw deal there, it’s irresponsible. I’m sort of surprised by that.”
Last month, Meghan told royal well-wishers that she is due to give birth at the end of April or early May.
But the exact date is not known and Kensington Palace have only stated that her tot will arrive in the spring.
Mr Clooney’s intervention comes after Meghan’s father Thomas Markle shared a letter from his daughter on Sunday, reigniting the long-running family row which has played out in public since her royal wedding.
Mr Markle did not attend Meghan’s big day due to health reasons but it had emerged shortly before that he staged paparazzi pictures.
Since then, the 74-year-old has accused Meghan of cutting contact with him in a string of interviews.
But Mr Markle revealed the note from Meghan after five of her friends told US magazine People that the duchess had written to her father.
The duchess’s anonymous pals spoke out to defend her against “global bullying”.
One said: “Meg has silently sat back and endured the lies and untruths, we worry about what this is doing to her and the baby.
“It’s wrong to put anyone under this level of emotional trauma, let alone when they’re pregnant.”
