Meghan Markle has faced unforgiving scrutiny from when her relationship with Prince Harry was revealed to the public in October 2016.

Meghan Markle opens up in a new interview.

Furthermore, when Meghan was asked by the host what it was like to be a new mother in front of the world, Meghan said that not many people have even asked her if she was feeling ok.

"Any woman, especially when they are pregnant, you are really vulnerable, so that was made really challenging", the British royal said in the clip.

"Especially as a woman, it's really... it's a lot". You add this on top of just trying to be a new mom, or trying to be a newlywed", she said, adding, "And also thank you for asking.

The clip was taken from an upcoming ITV documentary, Harry And Meghan: An African Journey, that goes behind the scenes of their recent Royal Tour of Africa and looks at the couple's personal lives as royals and parents.

When Bradby asked if she's "Not really OK, as in, it's really been a struggle?"

Harry & Meghan: An African Journey airs in the United Kingdom on ITV on Sunday October 20.

Markle also thanked Bradby for asking how she was doing.

Harry revealed to reporter Tom Bradby that living in the spotlight has been an emotional toll on him and every time he sees a camera flash he remembers the death of his mother, Princess Diana.

Legal documents filed at the High Court in London on Monday show that the Duchess of Sussex is suing the publisher of the UK Mail on Sunday for printing a "private and confidential" letter to her estranged father, Thomas Markle.

George Clooney, who attended the former actress' wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018, told a press panel that she's been "pursued and vilified".

"In that respect, it's the worst reminder of her life as opposed to the best".

"I remember squeezing Meghan's hand so tight during the awards and both of us thinking what it would be like to be parents one day and more so would it would be like to protect and help our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time", he continued. Being here now 22-years later, trying to finish what she started, will be incredibly emotional. "I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces".
