The American-born royal broke down in an emotional interview with Britain's ITV Network during her and Prince Harry's recent journey to Africa. She discussed the brutal treatment she's received from the British tabloids.

Meghan said her friends warned her not to marry Harry because the British press would ruin her life.

"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.

"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."

But Candace Owens was unsympathetic toward Meghan. She took to social media to lash out at the 38-year-old first-time-mom.

"Using African children as a backdrop to complain about your over-privileged life is offensive," she tweeted.

She also directed her anger at Prince Harry, 35.

"Invoking your own mother's tragic death to demand the press stop calling out your hypocritical wife is downright disgusting.

Meghan Markle is a witch.
Harry is under your spell."

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.

Officials at Britain's the Mail On Sunday newspaper vowed to "vigorously defend" themselves against Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's lawsuit.

On Tuesday, Prince Harry released a rare statement, revealing he and Meghan have filed a lawsuit against the Mail over misuse of private information, infringement of copyright and breach of the Data Protection Act 2018.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, claimed the publication published false information in the "intrusive and unlawful publication of a private letter written by the Duchess of Sussex", to her estranged father Thomas Markle.

The royals claim parts of the letter were edited and redacted, but representatives for the Mail on Sunday insist they stand by the initial story, and intend to fight the lawsuit.

In a lengthy statement on his personal website, Prince Harry wrote,

"Unfortunately, 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 – a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son."

He added:

"My deepest fear is history repeating itself. I've seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces."

In an editorial for the Daily Mail Online, Piers Morgan said Harry is "playing the victim card."

"Oh please. Give me a bloody break, your royal highness!" Morgan said.

"The old Prince Harry, the courageous soldier and fun-loving party boy, would never have spewed such sanctimonious guff," Morgan wrote.

Morgan added that Harry has been "Meghan-ed" by his wife, who is pulling his strings.

"Sadly, he's been Meghan-ed and that means when he's not pontificating piously about progressive woke issues, he's playing the victim card."

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan visited the Tembisa Township to learn about Youth Employment Services during their royal tour of South Africa in Johannesburg on Wednesday, October 2.

Royal watchers were delighted to see the Duchess wearing another of her favorite oversized shirt dresses.

In an unprecedented rebuke of the British media by a royal, Prince Harry launched an emotional attack against the British press, saying he fears his wife Meghan Markle is falling victim to the same powerful forces that did in his mother, Princess Diana.

In a now infamous video clip, Princess Diana is seen running from a pack of British paparazzi. One of them caught up to her and rudely shoved her because she didn't want her photo taken outside the apartment of her lover, Dr Hasnat Khan.

The paparazzi assaulted the Princess of Wales in full view of cameras because she cheated on the future king of England, Prince Charles.

Queen Elizabeth, pictured with Diana in 1987, removed Diana's security detail and snatched away her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.

Princess Diana was thrown to the wolves, bullied by the British press, and treated like a commoner until the day she died.

Prince Harry does not want the same to happen to his wife.

In a lengthy personal statement on his and Meghan's official website, Harry said his "deepest fear" was his "wife falling victim to the same powerful forces" that his mother faced before she died in a tragic car accident while being pursued by the paparazzi in 1997.

"Unfortunately, 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 – a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son," Harry wrote.

"There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face – as so many of you can relate to – I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been.

"Because in today's digital age, press fabrications are repurposed as truth across the globe. One day's coverage is no longer tomorrow's chip-paper."

Prince Harry, pictured with his mom on May 7, 1995, wrote:

"My deepest fear is history repeating itself. I've seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces."

Harry and Meghan announced they are suing The Mail On Sunday newspaper for publishing a letter to Meghan's estranged father Thomas Markle.

Meghan has retained a powerful law firm and is paying the legal fees out of her and Harry's personal coffers.

She is suing for misuse of private information, infringement of copyright and breach of the Data Protection Act 2018.

If she wins her case, the proceeds will be donated to an anti-bullying charity.

Baby Archie was dressed fashionably in blue striped dungarees and matching booties.
