George Clooney has come to the defence of Meghan Markle in a new interview. "My grandchildren adore him, absolutely adore him", she revealed on the BBC documentary Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70.
The actor, who is a friend of the British royal and her husband Prince Harry and attended their royal wedding with his wife Amal last May (18), gave the warning after United Kingdom tabloid the Mail on Sunday published a letter Meghan reportedly wrote to her estranged father, Thomas Markle.
He added, "We've seen how that ends", alluding to the vehicle accident that claimed the life of the princess in 1997.
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.
According to Vanity Fair, his releasing the letter has only made things even worse, and that tension is being felt throughout Kensington and Buckingham palaces. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to see that'.
Harry and Meghan watched a special performance of The Wider Earth, a critically acclaimed theatrical production about the young Charles Darwin's expedition on HMS Beagle.
