Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, was advised not to marry Prince Harry before tying the knot in a fairy tale wedding in England last year.

WENN.com reports the 38-year-old former Suits actress opened up about life as the wife of a British prince in a new documentary for ITV, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, which aired on Sunday night, Oct. 20, in the U.K..

In the documentary, Meghan broke down when discussing the brutal treatment she received from the British tabloids and some Brits.

Prince Harry still blames the British media for killing his mother, Princess Diana. She died in a horrific car crash when the limo she was riding in was pursued by paparazzi on motorcycles.

Meghan was introduced to Harry by a mutual friend, tennis superstar Serena Williams.

After a 2-year, long distance courtship, Harry popped the question.

But Meghan admitted several of her close British pals warned her not to marry the prince, telling her "you shouldn't do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life".

"My British friends, they were sure he was lovely, but they said I shouldn't do it because 'the British tabloids will destroy your life'. Because I'm American I very naively didn't get it. It's complicated."

"In all fairness, I had no idea, which probably sounds difficult to understand, but when I first met Harry, my friends were so excited, my U.S. friends were happy because I was happy," Meghan said.

Meghan's life became even more complicated when she gave birth to son Archie, her and Harry's first child, in May.

She said she struggles as a new mom being in the media spotlight. Meghan hinted that she is suffering from postpartum depression.

"Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant you're really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a newborn – you know... And especially as a woman, it's a lot."

"Also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I'm OK," she said, fighting back tears. "But it's a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes."

When asked if she was "struggling," a visibly upset Meghan replied: "Yes," according to London's Daily Mail.

Meghan Markle is feeling vulnerable, sad and lonely as an outsider in UK's royal family. The American-born Duchess of Sussex opened up about her vulnerabilities in an emotional interview with Britain's ITV Network.

Meghan said she struggles as a new mom being in the media spotlight. Her friends have all but abandoned her as they focus on their own families, their exciting jobs and social interests.

Many women envy the Duchess, who is married to England's charming Prince Harry, a 35-year-old Virgo, who is very protective of his wife.

Meghan, a 38-year-old Leo, recently gave birth to the couple's first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, 5 months.

But underneath her happy exterior lies a woman who is broken, sad and desperately lonely.

When asked how being in the public eye has had an impact on her psychologically, Meghan hinted that she is suffering from postpartum depression.

"Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant you're really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a newborn – you know... And especially as a woman, it's a lot."

"Also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I'm OK," she said, fighting back tears. "But it's a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes."

When asked if she was "struggling," a visibly upset Meghan replied: "Yes," according to London's Daily Mail.

Meghan met Prince Harry through a mutual friend (tennis champ Serena Williams) at a party in London. The couple carried on a long distance love affair (she was in Canada working on the U.S. TV show, Suits).

After a 2 year whirlwind courtship, Harry popped the question and Meghan happily accepted. Their star-studded wedding was held on May 19, 2018 in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in London.

But a year later, reality has set in like an arctic blast of cold air.

Harry and Meghan are targets of the same British press that hounded Harry's mom, Princess Diana.

Harry recently filed a lawsuit against a British media outlet for hacking his cell phone. And Meghan is suing a newspaper for publishing a private letter sent by her estranged father.

Friends say Meghan would be happier if she and Harry packed up their son and moved to Canada or Africa.

The couple recently returned from a 10-day tour of Africa during which the prince emotionally retraced his mother's footsteps in an old Angola minefield 22 years after her death.

The site has been converted into a residential road, affectionately known among locals as Princess Diana Street.

The ITV exclusive interview airs on Sunday at 9 p.m. local time.

A source within singer Beyonce's camp told Sandrarose.com exclusively that the first-time mom is feeling sad and having trouble sleeping at night. The source revealed that Beyonce, 30, is having difficulty handling her duties as a mom to 7-week old daughter, Blue Ivy. "She's depressed and she's losing weight because she won't eat," said the source.

If this is true, Beyonce may be suffering from a clinical depression known as Postpartum Depression. Postpartum depression, which affects women after childbirth, can also affect women who have not given birth.

Postpartum Depression is not to be confused with the normal "baby blues" that some women feel in the weeks after childbirth, including moodiness and teariness. Postpartum Depression is more severe and the symptoms lasts longer than a few weeks.

Postpartum depression can occur when a woman feels sad, lonely and overwhelmed by a lack of support from her husband. According to my source, Beyonce thought a baby would improve her relations with Jay Z, 43, who spends a great deal of time at the studio.
