Meghan Markle Speaks Openly On The Challenges Of Parenting
Meghan Markle has spoken about the struggles she has faced as a new mom in a recently released documentary — Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.
The Duchess of Sussex used the documentary, which follows the Royal couple as they tour Africa, as an opportunity to illustrate how her mental health has suffered at the hands of the British tabloids.
Since Markle, who is from the US, began dating Prince Harry in 2016, she has encountered criticism from the tabloids as well as globally online via social media.
The Duchess held back tears during one scene where she shared that “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…it’s a lot.”
“Thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay” she added.
Speaking on the mounting pressures placed upon her as a new Royal, Markle stated “It’s not enough to just survive something; that’s not the point of life. You’ve got to thrive, you’ve got to feel happy.”
