If there's one person who knows about the pressures of the public eye, it's goddess of the world and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

Since marrying Prince Harry last year, Meghan has been under relentless scrutiny from many popular British tabloids.

Now, fans are getting a glimpse into how much the Duchess has been struggling in the new ITV documentary, "Harry & Meghan: An African Journey" which debuted in the U.K. this past Sunday.

This rare glimpse into Meghan's personal life reveals she's been struggling behind the scenes, and few people have asked her if she's okay.

In another clip, Meghan talks about being discouraged from marrying Prince Harry by her British friends.

"When I first met Harry, my friends were so excited. My U.S. friends were happy because I was happy. But 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.'"
