Parenting isn’t easy, especially for someone in the public eye as much as Meghan Markle has been. The media has been obsessed with every move she’s made since she began dating Prince Harry. Prince Harry has even taken as far as to sue some of the British tabloids for the way they’ve been treating his wife. Now, Markle has opened up to ITV News about her recent pregnancy and the struggle of being in the spotlight.
The Duchess of Sussex married Prince Harry in May 2018. They welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, in May 2019. When asked about the immense pressure she was under and how it was similar to what Harry’s mother Princess Diana felt, she says that it is “challenging.”
“I would say, look, any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging,” Markle told ITV News. “And then when you have a newborn, you know? And especially as a woman, its really, 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.”
She also said that it’s fair to say she’s still struggling.
“Thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m OK, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scene,” said Markle.
The full interview with Markle is set to air this Sunday. It’s sure to be eyeopening and emotional.
