Meghan Markle Opens Up About Struggles of Being a Royal and New Mom: 'Not Many People Have Asked If I'm OK'

It comes as little surprise that Meghan Markle has been struggling through relentless public scrutiny ever since she started dating Britain's Prince Harry.

The Duchess of Sussex married Prince Harry at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle in May 2018 and gave birth to the couple's son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, in May this year.

Meghan stated: "Any woman, especially when they are pregnant, [is] really vulnerable, and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a newborn".

In the clip, The Duchess of Sussex's looks pained and her voice audibly cracks as she admits to how hard it's been coping with the constant media harassment; especially after getting married and giving birth. "So you include this (media examination), on top of simply trying to be a brand-new mama or trying to be a newlywed". She added that not many people had asked whether she was all right. In it, filmmaker Tom Bradby asks Meghan how she's dealt with the pressures from the press - and her candid answer is heartbreaking. "Nonetheless it's a in actuality loyal factor to be going through in the assist of the scenes".

Previous clips of the upcoming documentary teased sweet moments between Meghan, Harry and Archie, as well as a raw conversation with the Duke of Sussex about his late mother, Princess Diana.

Journalist Tom Bradby asked Harry whether he's at peace, or if he feels that Diana's loss is still a festering wound.

In the same ITV documentary, Harry referred to his mother's death as a "wound that festers".

During the trip, Harry got the chance to follow in his late mother's footsteps, quite literally, as he walked along the same path she did during her visit almost three decades before, when it was still a live minefield. "In that respect it's the worst reminder of her life as opposed to the best".

As the tour ended, the duke and duchess both brought legal actions against the press.

Claims have officially been filed at the U.K. High Court alleging an illegal interception of voicemail messages.

Harry also revealed to broadcaster Tom in a new ITV documentary filmed on their trip, broadcast in the United Kingdom on Sunday, that being photographed in public reminded him of his mum's tragic death in 1997.

"I've seen what happens when someone I love is commoditized to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces".
