Meghan Markle news: Heartwarming moment Meghan reveals how ’supportive’ Harry helped her | Royal | News

Meghan gave an example of how her husband Prince Harry “supports” her and how they confront each other whenever they have to take important decisions. The Duchess of Sussex recalled the first engagement she undertook in Cape Town on September 23, just a few hours after she landed in South Africa with her son Archie Harrison and husband Harry. The couple’s first engagement took place in Nyanga, a township notorious for its high rate of murders and crimes targetting women. There, Meghan delivered a powerful speech, where she told locals she was touring their country as a member of the Royal Family – but she was with them as much more. Standing on a tree stump, Meghan said: “May I just say that while I am here with my husband as a member of the Royal Family, I want you to know that for me, I am here as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of colour and as your sister.” The last part of her speech, which was welcomed with cheers by the crowd, was added at the last minute, Meghan revealed. And Prince Harry had a pivotal role in this, as he “supported her” when she sought his advice. Speaking to Tom Bradby, who filmed the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, Meghan said: “I said to Harry ‘what do you think if I add this in?”  Harry, the Duchess said, told her that if that’s what she felt was “right” to say, then she should have gone ahead with it. Meghan continued saying that she hopes that one day no one will take note of her background and the fact that she is mixed-race. However, she added, before being a member of the Royal Family she was strongly identifying herself as a woman of colour, and it is still an important part of her life.  READ MORE: Meghan and Kate walking own paths in Diana’s shadow during royal toursThe documentary filmed by Mr Bradby analysed not just the successful tour undertaken by Meghan and Harry, but also how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are coping with being under the scrutiny of the press and the public. In the documentary, Meghan was asked about the “impact on your physical and mental health of all the pressure that you clearly feel under”.  She said: “I would say…look any woman, especially when they are pregnant, you are really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging. DON’T MISS “And then when you have a newborn, you know?“And especially as a woman it’s really, it’s really a lot.“So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mum or trying to be a newlywed it’s…”   Meghan continued speaking about her emotional state, adding “not many people” have checked whether she was truly ok.  She said: “Well, I guess, and also thank you for asking, but not many people have asked if I’m ok, but it’s a very real thing to be faint through behind the scenes.” Meghan is then asked: “And the answer is, would it be fair to say, not really ok?”As in, it’s really been a struggle?”  To which Meghan simply answered “yes”.   Prince Harry also opened up on his personal life, going as far as speaking about the alleged rift with his brother Prince William. He said: “Part of this role and part of this job and this family being under the pressure that it’s under. “Inevitably, you know, stuff happens. But we’re brothers. We’ll always be brothers. “We’re certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him and, as I know, he will always be there for me. “We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we are so busy.“But I love him dearly. And you know the majority of stuff is created out of nothing.“But as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days.”
