In an emotional confession, Meghan Markle admitted that she has struggled with the media attention—and often scrutiny—that she has faced as a royal, especially while pregnant with her first child.
“Any woman, especially when they’re pregnant—you’re really vulnerable. So that was made really challenging. And then when you have a newborn, you know?” she said. “Thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay,” she continued. “It’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”
When Bradby asked if it would be fair to say it’s been a struggle, she simply replied: “Yes.”
"Not many people have asked if I’m ok … it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes."

Currently the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are involved multiple lawsuits against the British press. Markle is seeking legal action against the Mail on Sunday for the alleged unlawful publication of a private letter that she sent to her father, Thomas Markle.
In a passionate public statement, Prince Harry lambasted the press for their treatment of his wife. “Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences—a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy, and while raising our newborn son.”
