The Times view on George Clooney's defence of Meghan: Royal Restraint

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle

Prince William and Kate Middleton have now been happily married for almost nine years, after they tied the knot at Westminster Abbey in April 2011.

"They're just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she's been pursued and vilified", Clooney told Australian magazine WHO.

Added to recent rumours that Prince William voiced concern about Harry's whirlwind romance with Meghan Markle, it seems the royal brothers are fiercely protective of each other.

"I believe she cried more to do with the press intrusion than anything else in her life". "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".

"Oh, yes, I'll be the godfather of the royals, apparently", he said with a laugh, clarifying his sarcasm with a big, "No!"

Shortly before his daughter was due to Wednesday Harry, Thomas staged paparazzi photos of himself preparing for the wedding.

In a 2017 BBC documentary, William described paparazzi who followed her as "a pack of dogs" that "followed her, chased her, harassed her, called her names, spat at her, trying to get a reaction, to get that photograph of her lashing out". While we don't know the gender or possible names, it's clear that Charles will have a special bond with his fourth grandchild.

As Mr Markle threatens to release more content of the five page letter, The Daily Telegraph have reported that palace aides are taking legal advice before Meghan decides whether she wants to take formal action.

Reportedly written after her wedding, the letter accuses Thomas of "breaking her heart into a million pieces" before pleading with him to stop lying and speaking to tabloid newspapers without first trying to speak to her.

When Prince Harry himself proposed in 2017, he designed his own yellow gold engagement for his bride Meghan Markle.

The former Hollywood lighting director, who lives in Mexico, said that he never meant to make the handwritten letter public "out of respect for Meghan" - but says he has been forced to do so now because its contents have been falsely portrayed.
