George Clooney debunks rumours that he will be godfather of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's child: 'I have enough s--- to deal with'

George Clooney debunks rumours that he will be godfather of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's child: 'I have enough s--- to deal with' George Clooney will not be the godfather of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal baby. The actor said he had "enough s--- to deal with" already caring for his twins in an interview with Australia's Who magazine. "Oh yes, I'll be the godfather of the royals apparently," he told reporters before laughing and confirming, "No!" The actor added, "I'm the father of twins, I have enough s--- to deal with - literally!" In the same interview, Clooney came to the defence of Meghan Markle, saying that she was being vilified in the same way that Princess Diana was.

The media are harassing Meghan Markle just as they did Princess Diana, who was killed in a car crash while being pursued by paparazzi, her friend George Clooney said.

Clooney and his wife Amal attended Meghan's wedding to Prince Harry, Diana's son, last year when the American actress became the newest addition to the British royal family.

The Duchess of Sussex as she is now known, is expecting her first child, something that has intensified already huge media interest.

Last weekend, some media published details of an intimate letter they said Meghan has sent her estranged father.

"I can't tell you how frustrating that is," Clooney said.

"Just seeing them broadcast a letter from a daughter to a father, she's getting a raw deal there and I think it's irresponsible and I'm surprised by that."

Last month, five of Meghan's close friends told People magazine the duchess had endured "lies and untruths" and "global bullying" and they worried how this would affect her and her baby.
