Royal baby: George Clooney begs media to be ‘kind’ to new mum Meghan Markle

Speaking at the Catch-22 premiere about media scrutiny of Meghan and Harry, he said: “I think [becoming parents will] intensify it, of course. But it’s never about the media following you around, because that, in part, if you’re a royal, that’s part of what you have to do. It’s the other versions of it – going to interview people’s parents, that kind of stuff.”

“It starts to step into a really dark place,” said Clooney, who has denied that he will be a godfather to the baby.

“It’s just, sort of, the press turned on them. I think people should be a little kinder. She’s a young woman who just had a baby.”

The Clooneys have holidayed with the Sussexes in Italy and were also at their wedding.

Amal Clooney also attended Meghan’s luxury baby shower.

Hollywood star Clooney also joked to Entertainment Tonight about sharing a birthday with the young royal.

“I was a little irritated because that kid really is stealing my thunder,” he said.

Clooney stars in, produced and partially directed the TV adaptation of Joseph Heller’s novel.

The six-episode mini-series will air on Channel 4 in the UK.
