Her name has been a staple in the UK tabloids. Since she started dating one of the world's most eligible bachelors, Prince Harry, everyone has their eyes glued on her.
Every move Meghan Markle does makes it to the news.
Although Markle has clearly tried to keep her cool, the tabloids seem to constantly publish negative stories about her. The new mom admits that the rumors circulating about her affect her in more ways than she could imagine.
Now Markle, for the first time since she married into the royal family, talked about how she feels amidst all the negative news on the UK tabloids.
In an interview with ITV's Tom Bradby -- which is part of their documentary "Harry & Meghan: An African Journey" -- the Duchess of Sussex opened up about how she's adjusting to the marriage. At 38, she admited that her life has just gotten even more difficult. The details of their wedding were all over the news, and it did not come free of opinions.
She also talked about how her pregnancy has made her vulnerable as a woman. A woman's body goes through a lot during pregnancy, and welcoming a newborn is a lot.
Meghan said she's never been so happy since their family became three. However, all the rumors about her on the tabloids made motherhood challenging. It was as if she has not done anything right.
Being a member of the royal family can be tough. The world has its expectations while the royal court has its rules. But to the new mom, all the negative publicity on top of everything else on her life made things even more difficult to deal with.
During the interview, she expressed her appreciation to Tom Bradby for asking her about how she felt. She said that there aren't a lot of people who have asked her about how she feels.
"But all these things and feelings are real behind the scenes," Markle emphasized.
With Markle looking hesitant to give a rather direct answer, Bradby had to confirm if she has been "struggling" or if she wasn't feeling "okay" about everything.
"Yes," she said bluntly while looking glum.
This candid response from Markle came as no surprise to her fans following the open letter Prince Harry wrote to the U.K. press for "bullying" his wife. He said that he has seen his mother went through the same treatment from the tabloids and now his wife is falling victim to what he called "powerful forces."
Readers should note that Princess Diana died in a car crash in 1997 trying to flee from the paparazzi.
Harry and Meghan, who married in 2017 amidst controversies, are suing the Mail for privacy concerns. When asked about how he felt about the rumors circulating in the tabloids about his wife, Prince Harry said it reminded him of his mother.
Further in their documentary, Prince Harry and Meghan also spoke about their roles as members of the royal family. They are particularly excited to share about how they are doing as new parents to the royal baby -- Archie Harrison.
"Harry and Meghan: An African Journey" will be aired on October 23, Wednesday at 10:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
