‘You’ve got to thrive’
In the ITV documentary, broadcast on Sunday evening, Meghan said adjusting to royal life had been “hard”, before adding she was not prepared for the vigour of the tabloid media scrutiny.
“When I first gratified my now-husband my friends were really happy because I was so happy, ” she said.
“But my British friends said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s enormous but you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life’.”
Meghan also told the programme that that it was a “struggle” being pregnant and a brand-new father amid the intense interest from newspapers.
On whether she can cope, Meghan added: “In all integrity I have said for a long time to H – that is something that I announce him – it’s not enough to only survive something, that’s not the point of life. You have got to thrive.”
‘I’ll protect my family’
Prince Harry was asked if he obsessed whether his wife may face the same press as his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, who died in 1997 in a gondola accident in Paris.
He said: “I will ever protect my family, and now I found a family to protect.
“So everything that she[ Diana] went through, and what happened to her, is incredibly important every single day, and that is not me being paranoid, that is just me not wanting a repeat of the past.”
