Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle Gets Candid About Having To Deal With Negative Press Since Becoming A Mom | WATCH

Mum-of-one, Meghan Markle has obviously being targeted by British tabloids since her marriage to Prince Harry. The 38-year-old Duchess and former actress has suffered many stings at the hands of British dailies who find blame with almost every of her move.

In a clip from an upcoming documentary “Harry & Meghan: An African Journey,” the Duchess of Sussex gets emotional with ITV’s Tom Bradby about pregnancy, motherhood and marriage and having to deal with negative press since becoming a mom.

Meghan told Bradby:

“Look, any woman, especially when they’re 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,” she said when Bradby asked her how being in the spotlight has affected her mental health.

“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 um…yeah.”

Markle also thanked Bradby for asking her about her mental health. “Not many people have asked me if I’m okay,” she said.

When asked if it’s fair to say she’s “not really okay,” and whether it’s been a “struggle” to adjust to life in the public eye as a royal, Meghan simply said “yes.”

What Meghan said about the struggles she’s faced as a new mom under intense media scrutiny has clearly hit close to home with lots of women.

During the trip, the Duke of Sussex published a searing statement on the couple’s official website about tabloids. He announced the couple would be suing the Mail on Sunday over its publication of a private letter Meghan wrote to her father.

“There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face – as so many of you can relate to – I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been,” Harry said in his statement.

Harry also compared how his wife was being treated over the years to how the tabloids treated his mother, Princess Diana. She died in 1997 when her car crashed while being chased by paparazzi.

“Because my deepest fear is history repeating itself. I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised 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,” Harry’s statement said.

He added that he had “been a silent witness” to his wife’s “private suffering for too long. To stand back and do nothing would be contrary to everything we believe in.”
