The Times view on George Clooney's defence of Meghan: Royal Restraint

  • Amal Clooney and George Clooney arrive at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle for the royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

CNN royal contributor Victoria Arbiter explains on Yahoo UK's 'The Royal Box' that although Camilla legally is Princess of Wales, she took the title of the Duchess of Cornwall when she married Prince Charles in 2005 - out of respect to the late Princess Diana.

"She's a woman who is seven months pregnant, and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that [Princess] Diana was, and it's history repeating itself", he added.

Diana, like we need to remind you, tragically died in a vehicle crash while fleeing pursuing paparazzi in Paris in 1997.

They mentioned a five-page letter she wrote to her father, Thomas Markle Sr.

Thomas responded to the interview by releasing a private letter from his daughter, and now a new report claims that Meghan is at her "wit's end", Prince Harry is "angry" and "upset", and Queen Elizabeth is calling the situation a "nightmare".

Meghan goes on to beg: "If you love me, as you tell the press you do, please stop".

Scott Morrison's Response To The Medivac Bill Is Reopening Christmas Island
Since 2013, Australia has sent asylum seekers arriving by boat to detention centres on Manus Island (Papua New Guinea) and Nauru . Speaking before the vote, Morrison said that the changes would encourage people-smugglers and provoke a new flow of arrivals.

Meghan also accuses her father of snubbing her and Prince Harry's offers to help when he pulled out of attending their wedding following two heart attacks and accuses him of being ungrateful for money she has given him.

"Meghan really hoped Thomas wouldn't leak the letter", the source said. "This you know. No texts, no missed calls, no outreach from you - just more global interviews you're being paid to do to say harmful and hurtful things that are untrue".

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex attend a gala performance of "The Wider Earth" in support of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust & the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy at the Natural History Museum on February 12, 2019, in London, England.

But Samantha, 54, has today hit back, telling the Daily Star: "She says she doesn't know me and she lied and said she was never close to my dad... if pointing out that what she says are all lies breaks your heart, too bad because what I'm saying is the truth".

When Kensington Palace first announced the couple was expecting a baby, it said the child was due sometime in the spring.

They also expressed their concerns for Meghan and her unborn baby.
