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.

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".

Prince Harry and Meghan have opened up about the pressures they have been facing as a result of their increased publicity and media attention, and ITV broadcaster Tom Bradby, who went out to Africa during their recent royal tour, has opened up about how he found the couple to be "vulnerable and bruised".

For Harry, Africa is always going to be at the center of his, and Meghan's, work. The couple were praised by those who they met for being so down-to-earth. Harry still believes that the press, or at least the game she was forced to engage in with it, killed his mother.

He wrote: 'I couldn't help but notice how incredibly exhausted, even burnt out, Harry looked'.

Failure to adhere to the rules may result in ship security, law enforcement intervention, and ultimately removal from the ship. A passenger who leapt from his 11th-floor balcony on a cruise ship was banned for life after filming the prank on his phone.


"That would be an awesome place for us to be able to base ourselves". Harry says tonight: "I don't know where we could live in Africa at the moment".

"We have just come from Cape Town - that would be an wonderful place to be able 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 want to without the issues and the judgment of how we would be with those surroundings".

"Any woman, especially when they're pregnant, you're really vulnerable, and so that was made really challenging". To be a woman in the public eye is already hard, but adding race into being a Royal, especially when you are openly proud and unapologetic about it, comes with even bigger problems. But it's a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes'.

When the reporter asked Meghan if that meant she wasn't OK, and that it "really" has been a struggle, the former actress simply says 'Yes'.

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

The pair will take some "family time" off towards the end of the year, from around mid-November once they have completed their current run of engagements and commitments, the source said.
