Last week one paper published a highly personal letter they said was written by Markle to her estranged father in which she begged him to "stop lying ... stop exploiting my relationship with my husband".

George Clooney has come to the defence of Meghan Markle in a new interview. (AAP) Harry and Meghan are expecting their first baby this year.

In 2016, shortly after their relationship became public, Prince Harry issued a rare statement criticizing the media for intruding into Meghan's private life, saying the press had subjected her to "a wave of abuse and harassment".

George Clooney is a friend of Harry and Meghan and he and his human rights lawyer wife Amal attended the royal wedding in May a year ago (pictured) as well as visiting the couple at their Cotswolds home. "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 and it's history repeating itself", he said.

Fergie has been candid in the past about her friendship with Diana, telling Harper's Bazaar in 2007, "Diana was one of the quickest wits I knew; nobody made me laugh like her".

The couples reportedly spent four days together at the Clooneys' Lake Como retreat last summer and are said to share a number of interests.
