From the moment the two went “officially public,” the world has been head-over-heels in love with the charming romance of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Their love story is something out of a fairytale book, and girls young and old fantasize about what life would be like to grow up and become a real-life royal just as Meghan did.
Meghan has become an international sensation, and her instant rise to extreme fame has often been compared to that of her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. The increase in paparazzi and the ever-growing rumor mills online have caused intense pressure not only on her but on the entire royal family.
This kind of pressure is certainly not something that a woman, much less a heavily pregnant one, should ever have to endure on a constant basis. Because of the continually mounting pressure, her close friends have stepped up to the plate to bat in her defense.
One of her dearest friends had a lot to say about the matter. American actor, George Clooney, has been friends with the Duke and Duchess for quite some time. He’s seen all that she’s gone through and he knew it was time for him to speak out on her behalf.
Little did he know that while defending his friend, he’d also spill the beans on something her fans had been craving to hear!
Recently, he told sources: “They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere. She’s been pursued and vilified. She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she’s 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.”
He continued and began to make mention of the drama the Markle family has caused. “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 here. It’s irresponsible. I’m sort of surprised by that.”
He knew that Meghan had to go through more than most at her age, and the pressure is continually mounting. He stepped out in her defense to try and chill the media out in hopes of relieving some of the pressure she’s under.
While doing this, he spilled the beans that the Duchess was seven months pregnant - a guess that many had been speculating for months! If it comes from one of her closest friends, we know it has to be true.
We hope that the Duchess has a stress-free remainder of her pregnancy and that she will find healthy ways to deal with the overbearing media and press that follows her every step.
