Meghan Markle talks her struggles of being a Royalty + Harry wants to spend the rest of his life in Africa

Meghan Markle has said that she is 'existing, not living' while struggling with the pressures of royal life and media scrutiny.

The Duchess opened up during an emotional interview with broadcaster Tom Bradby for a new documentary which aired on ITV Sunday.

A new video from the documentary has emerged today which shows Harry discussing potentially leaving the UK one day to live in Africa.

Harry & Meghan: An African Journey will offer an insight into the emotional journey the 'vulnerable and bruised' royal couple have been catapulted into since their wedding while following their ten-day tour of southern Africa.


In the hour-long documentary, Harry voices his desire to leave the UK and considers living in Africa one day.

He said: 'I don't know where we could live in Africa at the moment.

'We've just come from Cape Town, that would be an amazing place for us to be able to to base ourselves, of course it would.

'But with all the problems that are going on there I just don't see how we would be able to really make as much difference as we'd want to.'

Harry also revealed Africa will be the main focus of his and Meghan's work in the future.

He said: 'The rest of our lives, especially our life's work will be predominantly focused on Africa, on conservation.

'There are 19 commonwealth countries across this continent, there's a lot of things to be done, there's a lot of problems here but there's also huge potential for solutions.'

In an article for the Sunday Times, Mr Bradby recalled asking Meghan whether she was able to cope with the endless media scrutiny the newlywed has been under. 

She said, 'We are taking it one day at a time,' before admitting that the couple are currently 'existing, not living.'

The Duchess received an outpouring of support from Twitter users on Friday after a clip from tonight's documentary was released in which she admitted she was 'not really OK'.

When Meghan was asked about the impact the intense public scrutiny has had on her 'physical and mental health' and how Harry is being 'protective' of her after what happened to his mother, she replied: 'Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant you're really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a new born – you know…

'And especially as a woman, 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, well…'

She continues: 'Also 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 scenes.'

Tom asks her: 'And the answer is, would it be fair to say, not really OK, as in it's really been a struggle?' Meghan, visibly upset, then replies: 'Yes.'

The couple will be taking six weeks off from their royal duties over the Christmas period.

  1. This couple should take things easy. They cannot live without public scrutiny but their ability to manage it is key. She should also also create a path for herself, not live in Daina's shoes.
