Meghan Markle has called out her treatment and reception as a royal in her most raw and honest confession to date as an explosive new documentary about the royals airs across the UK.
Granted exclusive access inside the royal couple's recent tour of Africa, ITV's Tom Bradby unveils some hard truths in Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, with both Meghan and Harry addressing some of the biggest claims that have circled around them over the past year.
The explosive new documentary lays bare the royal couple's struggles in the limelight, which intensified tenfold throughout Meghan's pregnancy, and then following the birth of baby Archie.
In a candid scene from the documentary, Meghan speaks about her reception from the British public, admitting that while she never thought it would be easy, "I thought that it would be fair".
Explaining her experience, the Duchess said: "It's not enough to just survive something, that's not the point of life, you've got to thrive and feel happy."
"I've really tried to adopt this British sensibility of a stiff upper lip... I've tried, I've really tried."

In another surprising clip, Prince Harry appears to confirm that there was a rift between himself and Prince William, with the Duke telling Bradby that "inevitably stuff happens".
"The majority of the stuff is created out of nothing but as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days," he said.

Harry added that these days, the brothers are on "different paths" and "don't see each other as much as we used to because we are these days".
But Harry reiterated: "I will always be there for him as I know he will always be there for me."
The Prince also bravely spoke about the intense media scrutiny he and Meghan were under, saying: "I won't play the game that killed my mother".

The documentary has provided one of the most raw and honest insights into the royal's state of mind in years, with thousands of fans reacting strongly to the insights provided by Meghan and Harry.
As new clips of Meghan surfaced over the weekend revealing that she "wasn't doing okay", a viral hashtag #WeLoveYouMeghan emerged.
A number of people have also taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, with many more rallying around the royals.
"If you're watching #HarryandMeghan right now and still have something negative to say, you don't have a heart," one fan wrote.
Another said: "I like them even more after watching... didn't think that was possible. Substance & style. An amazing couple. They're authentically themselves."

Bradby shared some poignant insights from his personal time with the royals, saying that the pair seemed "bruised" following the intense months of scrutiny.
And in a new report from the Sunday Times, it was also revealed the couple plan to step back from their royal duties in November.
Along with their son Archie, Meghan and Harry reportedly will travel to Los Angeles where they will spend time with Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland.
If you want to watch the new documentary in full, Harry and Meghan: An African Journey will air in Australia on Tuesday, October 22 7.30pm on channel 10.
