The 57-year-old actor - who was among the guests when the former actress, who was then known as Meghan Markle, married Prince Harry last May - has warned history could "repeat itself" if the ex-'Suits' star continues to be "pursued and vilified" in the same way the prince's late mother, Princess Diana, was until her death in a Paris auto crash in 1997.

George Clooney has slammed the media for subjecting Meghan, Duchess Of Sussex to the same treatment as her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.

The tense relationship between Meghan Markle and her father Thomas reached new heights in recent days due to the publication of a letter the Duchess of Sussex wrote him that he has since revealed to the press.

Clooney made the comments at the Television Critics Association conference in Pasadena, California. Clooney, a friend of the duchess, complained that she was "being pursued and vilified and chased in the..."

The Hollywood star is a friend of Harry and Meghan and he and his human rights lawyer wife Amal attended the royal wedding in May previous year.

Speaking at a Hulu panel event, Clooney said: "I do want to say, I just saw this piece". And we've seen how that ends.

"You're taking a letter from a daughter to a father and broadcasting it everywhere", Clooney said, according to the U.K.'s Press Agency.

The pair's relationship is now at breaking point after Meghan claimed in the letter that Thomas has not contacted her, despite him strongly denying this.

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

But Samantha, 54, has today hit back, telling the Daily Star: "She says she doesn't know me and she lied and said she was never close to my dad... if pointing out that what she says are all lies breaks your heart, too bad because what I'm saying is the truth". You watched me silently suffer at the hand of her vicious lies. "I'm sort of surprised by that".
