PRINCE HARRY spoke emotionally about his own and wife Meghan Markle’s struggles in a candid interview last month. Here’s how the Duke of Sussex’ brother and grandmother are dealing with Harry.
In an emotional interview last month Prince Harry spoke about his mental health during an official trip to southern Africa. Together with his wife Meghan Markle, they opened up about their struggles with scrutiny from the press.
Prince Harry also admitted in the film he and brother Prince William have “good days” and “bad days”.
Asked about media reports of a rift between the brothers, the Duke of Sussex said that “inevitably, stuff happens” as a result of “this family being under the pressure that it’s under”.
He added: “We are brothers. We will always be brothers.
“We are certainly on different paths at the moment, but I will always be there for him as I know he will always be there for me.”
The documentary has reportedly made Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William, and other members of the royal family concerned for the Duke of Sussex and his wife.
Prince William is said to be not only worried for the couple but angry at his brother for using the documentary to confirm the rift between them.
The BBC reported a “well-placed source” said William was “furious” with Harry about the interview.
However, the BBC described a palace source as saying “that was not his understanding of the prince’s mood” and “instead the official suggested a mood of concern, for the safety of the couple.”
Meghan said in the documentary adjusting to royal life had been “hard”.
She said: ”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’.”
According to another source, senior members of the Royal Family have “gone out of their way” to make Meghan feel welcome.
A source told the Standard senior sources admitted the Royal Household can appear “daunting”.
However, the insider said both the Queen and Prince Charles had made efforts to include Meghan.
One Palace figure told the publication: “I know that the Prince of Wales has several times reached out to Meghan.
“They get on and share a love of music too.
“I know he invited her to a preview of an exhibition at the palace.
“The Queen has been a source of strength too and invited them both to Balmoral where family problems are usually aired.”
In the documentary, titled Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, which aired on ITV last month, the Duchess of Sussex revealed “not many people have asked if I’m OK”.
She also admitted she was finding her new role as a public figure “a struggle”.
