Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s latest documentary aired this weekend, the couple has made headlines across the globe. During Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, Tom Bradby interviewed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on a number of things and they decided to open up in a very unexpected way. Harry spoke about how flashing cameras reminded him of his mother’s death, he addressed the Prince William ‘feud’, and he spoke about how fiercely protective he is of his family and his determination to avoid ‘a repeat of the past’.
Meghan also spoke candidly about life in the spotlight, revealing that her friends warned her that British tabloids would ‘destroy’ her life, and giving an emotional interview admitting that she is finding it difficult to deal with the pressure and constant scrutiny of being in the public eye.
Their honest interviews have been compared to Princess Diana’s explosive Panorama interview in 1995, and it has been reported that William is now worried about them.
However, amidst all the controversy, many viewers missed a very sweet off-camera moment.
During one segment, Meghan talks about how inspiring their trip to Africa has been – but eagle-eyed viewers noticed that in the background Harry can be seen cuddling and rocking baby Archie Harrison to sleep in the reflection of a glass window.
The proud father beamed as he later revealed that little Archie was enjoying the trip, saying: ‘He was looking out the window. He has found his voice now and he was bouncing up and down. He was making more noise than he has ever made before and he is smiling the whole time.’
Following the documentary, it was announced that Harry and Meghan are taking a break from public life to focus on their family.
A royal source told The Sunday Times: ‘The duke and duchess have a full schedule of engagements and commitments until mid-November, after which they will be taking some much-needed family time.’
