It has been a difficult couple of months for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. From the private jet scandal in August to suing British press earlier this month - the Duke and Duchess of Sussex just can't seem to catch a break. Meghan Markle in particular has been relentlessly criticised by British press, even during her early months of motherhood. It's safe to say that the royal couple have had enough of these vivious attacks, both online and in print publications.
Recently, a short clip of the Duchess being interviewed for the couple's documentary: "Harry & Meghan: An African Journey," was released where Meghan expressed her struggle of being a new mother and newlywed in such a harsh spotlight. She explains how the public have been scrutinising her constantly ever since her marriage to Prince Harry in 2015, 4 years later and it seems that not much as changed, but worsened. The Duchess says in the interview that "not many people have asked if I'm OK, but it's a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes." These heartbreaking words became viral online and social media users began to relate with the Duchess' touching & honest words.
"Not many people have asked if I’m ok ... it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes."

they criticized her for holding her own baby bump, wearing nail polish, eating avocados, closing her own car door, having a baby shower, the way she held her own baby ALL while heavily pregnant and then being a new mom with a newborn: she doesn’t deserve this #WeLoveYouMeghan pic.twitter.com/wIOaaB82Jc— meredith (@meghvnmarkle) October 18, 2019
Thank you Meghan Markle, for every new mum, for every woman who is expected to always be ok..

I am sickened by all of this. I’m just so tired of the hate, despite the fact that she really is an amazing woman who has done nothing wrong. You can see the pain in her eyes and how she’s holding back her tears. I don’t like this. At. All. #WeLoveYouMeghan pic.twitter.com/2wimlIps7g— Bea (@Bea_Vlogz) October 18, 2019
It wasn’t that long ago that I was a new mom, and I certainly will never forget the postpartum depression. Can’t imagine having to live under royal and public scrutiny on top of all the responsibilities. #weloveyoumeghan https://t.co/sfeK8jOQnr— Lexi Courtis (@lexi_courtis) October 18, 2019
“i’m here to do good. i’m not a destructive person. i think that every strong woman in history has had to walk down a similar path.”

Imagine being a Duchess with every possible privilege at your disposal and the only one who asks you how you’re doing is a news reporter. Heartbreaking. #WeLoveYouMeghan pic.twitter.com/vA31vDQN7Q— Gennefer ‘Stands with the WGA’ Ghouls (@Gennefer) October 18, 2019
I met Meghan when she visited Birmingham during her engagement to prince Harry & she was the sweetest, most polite woman who seemed so humbled to see us there.
