Meghan Markle Admits She’s Struggling With Being A New Mom Too

Meghan Markle opened up to ITV News at Ten anchor, Tom Bradby and was completely honest about her present journey in motherhood. 

As a royal, she has faced major scrutiny from the public. Not all can relate to being a member of the royal family, but many women can relate to Markle’s sentiments on motherhood. In an exclusive Instagram clip from ITV News, Markle says, “Any woman especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging. And then when you have a newborn, you know?”

Markle continues the interview telling Bradby, “Thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.” Many mothers struggle with postpartum depression. People are always checking up on the baby, but who’s checking up on the mothers? 

British tabloids have not made the journey any easier. Earlier this month, Prince Harry released a statement saying, “My wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences.” As a new royal, wife and mom, Markle has been subjected to endless bullying by the press. 

Harry and Meghan: An African Journey airs this Wednesday on ABC, where they will continue to give exclusive statements of their journey.
