Meghan Markle

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle has added more to her last interview when she talked about her struggles with Royal life.

In an interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby for the documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, the new Royal said that while she didn’t think Royal life would be easy, she at least thought it would be fair.

Meghan Markle intimated that her British friends warned her about this and that they told her not to marry Prince Harry. While they were happy because she was so happy, they also worried about the toll the constant scrutiny would take on her.

“It’s hard. I don’t think anybody could understand that, but in all fairness I had no idea, which probably sounds difficult to understand … but when I first met my now-husband my friends were really happy because I was so happy, but my British friends said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s great but you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life.” she said.

She also admitted that she didn’t understand what they said at the time adding,  “I’m not in tabloids. I didn’t get it, so it’s been complicated.”

Meghan Markle was also asked what she would do if she felt she couldn’t cope and to this the Duchess replied:”In all honesty I have said for a long time to H – that is what I call him – it’s not enough to just survive something, that’s not the point of life. You have got to thrive. You have got to feel happy, and I think I really tried to adopt this British sensibility of a stiff upper lip.


“I tried, I really tried, but I think what that does internally is probably really damaging, and the biggest thing that I know is that I never thought this would be easy but I thought it would be fair, and that is the part that is hard to reconcile but (I) just take each day as it comes.”

When Bradby stated that he position comes with wealth and fame, and that it was only natural that scrutiny follows, she said: “When people are saying things that are just untrue, and they are being told they are untrue but they are allowed to still say them, I don’t know anybody in the world who would feel that’s OK and that is different from just scrutiny.


“I think the grass is always greener. You have no idea. It is really hard to understand what it’s like. The good thing is that I have got my baby and I have got my husband and they are the best.”
