Meghan Markle held back tears while being filmed and now, fans of the royal family are coming to her aid to show support.
WeLoveYouMeghan quickly became the #1 trending thing on Twitter following a clip released on Friday of the upcoming documentary “Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.”
During the interview, Tom Bradby asks Meghan how she’s doing with the negative press after being thrust into the spotlight which included a wedding, pregnancy and birth of her first child.
That’s when the Duchess of Sussex almost loses it.
Choking back tears, Meghan began to answer before stopping to gain her composure.
“Any woman, especially when they’re 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,” she said.
ITV's @tombradby spoke to Meghan as he gained exclusive access to the royal couple as they toured Africa for 10 days with their son Archie.

“So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed. It’s um…yeah. I guess, also thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes,” Prince Harry‘s wife added.
When asked if it “would be fair” to say that Meghan’s “not really okay, as in it’s really been a struggle?” she responded, “Yes.”
The hashtag immediately began trending with fans stepping up to give Meghan their support.
People from all over the world are tweeting their love for the Duchess.
For many of us, including myself, it's about more than tiaras. As a Black woman and journalist, I see the harm that is caused when distorted narratives take hold in order to dehumanize another human being. I refuse to be silent #WeLoveYouMeghan

Prince Harry is currently enthralled in a legal battle with outlets from the UK press.
As The Blast reported, documents were filed on behalf of the Duke of Sussex against News UK (owner of The Sun) and MGN (former owner of The Mirror) regarding illegal interception of voicemail messages.
Days before, he took legal action against The Mail on Sunday, another British tabloid, over their “ruthless” treatment of Meghan, claiming they’ve “bullied” her since she fell pregnant.
