Los Angeles - The media are harassing Meghan Markle just as they did Princess Diana, who was killed in a car crash while being pursued by paparazzi, her friend George Clooney said.
Clooney and his wife Amal attended Meghan's wedding to Prince Harry, Diana's son, last year when the American actress became the newest addition to the British royal family.
The Duchess of Sussex as she is now known, is expecting her first child, something that has intensified already huge media interest.
"They're just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she's been pursued and vilified," Clooney told Australian magazine WHO.
"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," Clooney said.
