George Clooney is a well-known Hollywood actor, and he and Meghan Markle might have started a friendship when Meghan was a Hollywood actress herself.
How did they meet?
Since both were mingling about Hollywood, that is the place they could have met. However, some say that they met most likely through some mutual friends. That friend is Prince Harry, who met George Clooney at a charity event in the United Kingdom, long before he even met Meghan. Once Meghan and Prince Harry began dating, Prince Harry introduced her to his friend, George Clooney. “When he started getting serious with Meghan, Harry introduced her to George and Amal, and the couple quickly started hanging out regularly,” said a palace insider.
Meghan Markle and Amal Clooney
“Amal put Meghan and me together when she moved here,” hairstylist, Miguel Martin Perez, shared with The Daily Mail. “I do her color, her cut, and her styling.”
George Clooney defended his friend, Meghan Markle when her letter to her father came to light. “They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she’s been pursued and vilified,” said the actor to the UK’s Press Association news agency while he was promoting his new Hulu miniseries, Catch-22. “I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to see that. She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she is 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. You’re taking a letter from a daughter to a father and broadcasting it everywhere. She’s getting a raw deal there, it’s irresponsible. I’m sort of surprised by that.”
Prince Harry and the media
Prince Harry published a statement through Kensington Palace shortly after they became publicly an item, stating how Meghan had been “subject to a wave of abuse and harassment.” He feared for her well-being. Prince Harry knows what negative side of the media and paparazzi could cause. After all, his mother, Princess Diana, died in a car crash after she tried to escape the paparazzi.
