Why Meghan isn't the 'new Diana' - whatever George Clooney might think

The couple wed at Windsor Castle last May

While in Australia promoting his new TV series Catch-22, George came to Duchess Meghan's defence, comparing the trolling of the mom-to-be with the negativity that followed Princess Diana.

(AAP) Meghan has faced eghan has also faced intense interest from the United Kingdom press since her relationship with Prince Harry was revealed.

Meghan and Harry's outing comes just one day after the expectant royal was defended by George Clooney, who attended the pair's wedding previous year.

Clooney and his wife Amal attended Meghan's wedding to Prince Harry previous year when the American actress became the newest addition to the British royal family.

Clooney, 57, said history was repeating itself in the case of Meghan and Diana, warning "we've seen how that ends".

The Duchess of Sussex sported a monochrome look for the outing, pairing a cream-colored turtleneck dress by Calvin Klein with a coat by Amanda Wakeley, which she previously wore in March 2018 for a church service celebrating Commonwealth Day at Westminster Abbey. "Meg has always sat silently back and endured the lies and untruths", a former co-star told People.

Oof. This is all kinds of upsetting, and since it's from months ago, we know that it didn't compel Thomas to stop speaking negatively about his daughter and her new family. Since then, Thomas and Meghan's half-sister Samantha, who claimed responsibility for arranging her father's paparazzi photos before the wedding, have continued to speak critically of her to the tabloids.

Kensington Palace offered a pointed statement first confirming Harry's relationship with Meghan in 2016.

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.

"I haven't attacked Harry. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to see that", referring to Princess Diana's fatal vehicle crash in 1997 during which she was being chased by paparazzi. He has since proven that Meghan did contact him, while simultaneously breaking her trust. "It's irresponsible. I'm sort of surprised by that".
