An emotional Meghan Markle appeared to hold back tears as she admitted she's "not OK" in an interview about the pressures of her new role as a royal mum.

Speaking in a preview clip for their behind  the scenes documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, the Duchess of Sussex said the past year has been "really challenging".

The programme will follow Meghan, husband Prince Harry , and baby Archie on their 10-day Royal Tour of Africa last month, and promises to "explain a lot".

In a one-to-one interview with ITV's Tom Bradby, Meghan is asked about the "true pressures of life in the spotlight and the toll it has taken on them both".

She replies: "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. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed it’s, well…"
She then cuts to thank Tom for checking how she is doing. And, also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m OK. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes."
Following up on her answer, Tom asks: "And the answer is, would it be fair to say, not really OK, as in it’s really been a struggle?" 
Meghan pauses before replying simply: "Yes".
