It’s a heartbreaking video, but one that will hopefully cause the British media to take a step back and give Meghan Markle a much needed break.
During an emotional interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby, the Duchess of Sussex opened up about the difficulties of living under the harsh scrutiny of the media spotlight in the UK. Meghan revealed to Bradby that it’s a “very real thing to be going through behind the scenes” and replied “yes” when asked if it’s “really been a struggle.” The former “Suits” actress also admitted she’s “not really ok.”
“Not many people have asked if I’m ok … it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”

Since marrying Prince Harry last year, and giving birth to their first son in May, Markle has been bombarded with negativity from the press. It has gone so far that her husband, the Duke, has waged a legal war against several publications calling for legislation to prevent Meghan from enduring the same fate his mother, Princess Diana, succumbed to when she was killed in a car accident trying to flee aggressive paparazzi.
Meghan’s interview with Bradby was so raw and emotional, fans on Twitter began to send an outpouring of support with #WeLoveYouMeghan.

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

Thank you Meghan Markle, for every new mum, for every woman who is expected to always be ok..
For every woman who has has answered ‘fine’ when asked how they are. For every woman who hasn’t been fine and who hasn’t felt they could tell anyone.

On the flip side, look at all that she’s achieved and made happen while going through this. She’s inspired, helped, and made so many people happy and I’m so proud of her.#WeLoveYouMeghan
