Interviewed on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Clooney, 57, told presenters Kate Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins: “I think it’s a little unfair at times. “I’ve seen it when the press can turn on you for ridiculous reasons and almost nothing. It seems to be a little unjust since she hasn’t done anything.” Clooney, who went to Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May last year with wife Amal, said the 37-year-old Duchess was just living her life.
He said: “She’s a kind, smart young woman. They’re a wonderful, loving couple. Most of it you can just shrug off and not pay attention to, but sometimes it’s unkind.”
Last month Clooney claimed Meghan was being chased just like Princess Diana and suggested history was repeating itself.
“We’ve seen how that ends,” he said.
In yesterday’s interview he also joked about the Royal Family after attending a Prince’s Trust dinner at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.
“Charles got really crazy and started dancing on the tables – I was surprised to see that,” he said.
“He had such good dance moves. Sir Tom Jones sang, which was fun. It was actually a really great night.”
Clooney was in Edinburgh collecting a cheque for his and Amal’s charity, the Clooney Foundation for Justice.
The Hollywood star also said he was too old to play spy 007, saying: “I look like James Bond’s grandfather.”
But he backed Luther star Idris Elba to take over from Daniel Craig, saying: “I’ll say it 1,000 times – Idris Elba should be Bond, period.”
