George Clooney is a defender of the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex. The actor’s appearance on Good Morning Britain Friday, March 15, included some new insight about his close friendship with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
Clooney, who recently spoke out in support of Markle, described the former Suits actress as a “really kind and smart and intelligent young woman.”
With Markle eight months into pregnancy as she expects her first child with Prince Harry, George’s wife Amal Clooney even helped throw the duchess’s bridal shower last month in New York City.
As someone who spends quality time with the pair, George also noted the Sussexes as a “really wonderful, loving couple.” Against the level of scrutiny the pair constantly faces on a daily basis, George added: “Most of it you can just shrug off and not pay attention to, but sometimes it’s unkind.”
The Clooneys memorably attended the royal wedding last May, partying with the couple all the way through to the exclusive evening reception at Frogmore House. According to numerous reports, George personally bartended for guests at one point in the evening.
