During an interview with ITV‘s Tom Bradby for Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, Meghan revealed, “Any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable. So, that was made really challenging.” She continued, “And, then when you have a newborn, and especially as a woman, it’s a lot. So, you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed.”
