In an interview with World Health Organization magazine, Clooney warned history was at risk of repeating itself after the death of Prince Harry's mum Princess Diana, who died in a auto crash in 1997 after being pursued by the paparazzi.
"The paparazzi do not stalk her like they did the Princess of Wales - although they were often tipped off about where Diana would be". "She's getting a raw deal there, and I think it's irresponsible and I'm surprised by that", the actor stated, even referencing the letter that Markle reportedly wrote to her father.
