Meghan Markle and Prince Harry opened up about their struggles in a new documentary that aired Sunday night in the United Kingdom. The documentary, which is called Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, was shot during the royal couple's recent trip to Africa, which lasted for ten days. The man behind the documentary, British journalist and novelist Tom Bradby, followed Prince Harry and Meghan on their royal trip, starting off in South Africa. During the ten-day-trip in southern Africa, the couple also announced that they are taking legal action against several British tabloids, and both Prince Harry and Meghan got quite candid about how they have perceived British media to be bullying.
Prince Harry has been very open about how Africa has a special place in his heart, so it was extra special for him to visit the continent with his wife and their son Archie. According to the prince, the five-month-old seems to be just as fond of Africa, explaining how Archie had been so happy the past couple of days. The new father proudly explained how his son had been "finding his voice" and had been making happy noises and constantly smiling since their arrival.
As reported by ET Online, Prince Harry also shed some light on the rumored feuding between him and his brother, Prince William. The press has been suggesting that there is a rift between the two, but according to Prince Harry, they are simply on "different paths" at the moment. Nevertheless, they will always be there for each other no matter what, but due to their busy schedules, they do not see each other as much as they used to.
Meghan opened up about how the media's ruthless scrutiny has taken a toll on her, admitting that she was not prepared for how British tabloids would treat her. According to the Duchess of Sussex, her British friends warned her prior to her engagement to Prince Harry, saying that the British press would "destroy her life". According to Meghan, it is very different in the U.S., and she has definitely been struggling to cope behind the scenes.
The documentary is an excellent initiative from Meghan and Prince Harry, who have been criticized for being too private as a couple. By opening up about their feelings, they are sure to get a bigger understanding from people as they show they are humans like everyone else.
