Meghan Markle on brink of tears describing parenting in royal role

The Duchess of Sussex spoke to ITV for a show on her and her husband Prince Harry's recent royal tour of Africa.

Reporter Tom Bradby asked her how she was coping with the intense media spotlight while she adjusts to parenthood and she tearfully responded.

"Not many people have asked if I'm OK," she said.

Meghan also confirmed it had "really been a struggle" and said it was "a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes".

The couple have already announced that they are delaying their honeymoon to return to work the week after their nuptials.

It is anticipated that Miss Markle – now the Duchess of Sussex – will join the Queen at the Chelsea Flower Show for the first time and make an appearance at one of her annual garden parties in the coming weeks.
