MEGHAN Markle’s close friend George Clooney hopes that the media will "be a little kinder" to Meghan after the birth of her baby boy.
The 58-year-old actor also said that media scrutiny will intensify now that she and Prince Harry are parents.
Speaking at the Hollywood premiere of his movie "Catch 22" on Tuesday, he told The Associated Press Tuesday he also acknowledged that media coverage is part of being members of the royal family.
However, Clooney said the coverage steps "into a really dark place" when the media interviews people's parents.
He added that people should be kinder because "she's a young woman who just had a baby."
Clooney's wife, Amal, attended the duchess' baby shower and the Clooneys have vacationed with the royal couple, and both attended the royal wedding in May last year.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex introduced their newborn son to the world in St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle on Wednesday, just two days after Meghan gave birth.
The tot was held by his doting dad Prince Harry while a beaming Meghan walked alongside.
The Duchess looked remarkably chic in an bespoke white trench dress by her wedding dress designer Givenchy .
New mum Meghan described the experience as "magic" adding "I have the two best guys in the world, so I'm really happy."
She went on to say the new arrival has the "sweetest temperament" adding "he's the dream" with proud dad Harry adding "I wonder where he gets that from."
Harry added: "We are just so thrilled to have our own bundle of joy."
Body language expert Judi James says that "protective" Meghan has "slight inhibitions" about showing off baby Sussex today.
Meghan and Harry welcomed Baby Sussex weighing in at 7lb 3oz at 5.26am on Monday.
