Meghan brought to tears
MEGHAN the Duchess of Sussex has opened up about how royal life has been a “struggle” in the wake of public and tabloid scrutiny.
The Duchess of Sussex, 38, gave an emotional interview as part of the upcoming ITV documentary, Harry And Meghan: An African Journey.
Fighting back tears, the former Suits actor says: “Look, any woman, especially when they are pregnant, you’re really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging and then when you have a newborn — you know … And especially as a woman, it’s a lot.
“So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed it’s, well …”
Turning to the presenter, Meghan candidly adds: “And, also, thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m OK. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”
Meanwhile her husband Prince Harry also gives a heartfelt interview in the documentary, saying he still feels the “festering wounds” left by the death of his mother Princess Diana, and that he is constantly reminded of her.
Harry, 35, opened up about how important Africa was to him as he came to terms with the death of his mother, Princess Diana, in 1997. “Ever since I came to this continent as a young boy, trying to cope with something I can never possibly describe, Africa has held me in an embrace that I will never forget, and I feel incredibly fortunate for that.”
He also revealed that his wife living under the “same pressures” as Princess Diana is his biggest fear.
The doco will screen on Monday at 11am on Channel 10.
