The Duchess of Sussex has admitted it was a “struggle” becoming a new mother amid intense media scrutiny.

Meghan Markle married Prince Harry at Windsor Castle in May 2018 and gave birth to their son Archie this year.

When asked if it would be fair to say it had” really been a struggle “, Meghan said:” Yes. “

On the tour, the prince visited an anti-landmine project championed by his mother in Angola and told ITV it had been “emotional” to trace her footsteps.

“I think being part of this family, in this role, in this job, every single time I see a camera, every single time I hear a click, every single time I see a flash, it takes me straight back, so in that respect it’s the worst reminder of her life, as opposed to the best. “
