Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle recently spoke about being a new mother in the public eye. Recently there was a documentary called, ‘Harry & Meghan: An African Journey’. This documentary featured the former actor saying, “Not many people have asked if I’m ok … it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”
The documentary will debut in UK on October 20, presenting a rare glimpse of the royal couple’s recent tour of southern Africa. In the documentary, Meghan Markle speaks to anchor Tom Bradby about the amount of attention she gets. She mostly highlighted the attention during her pregnancy and initial months with son Archie.
“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. “So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed. It’s um…yeah. I guess, also thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”

It was note-worthy that Prince Harry filed lawsuits against tabloid publications, The Sun and the Daily Mirror. This was largely in reference to alleged phone hacking and copyright violation. The Duke’s stance was particularly firm against The Daily Mail on October 4.
According to the Duke’s statement, the tabloids have been campaigning against his wife without giving any thought to the consequences. In his statement, he noted that the tabloid’s action aggravated over the period of Meghan Markle’s pregnancy and the birth of their son. Prince Harry’s statement also mentioned relentless propaganda.
Megan Markle married Prince Harry in 2018 in a grand ceremony. A year later, she gave birth to her son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
