Royals wrap 10-day tour in Tembisa as it's revealed they're suing UK tabloid
She's been charming crowds across the country since arriving with her husband Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex last week, but it turns out Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has been battling to keep the smile on her face.
In an uncharacteristically candid personal statement, Prince Harry on Tuesday spoke of his wife's 'private suffering' at the hands of the British tabloid press.
Addressing the growing backlash against the duchess, he accused the media of 'double standards' in its treatment and reporting of her over the past nine months.
"She is the same woman she was a year ago on our wedding day, just as she is the same woman you’ve seen on this Africa tour" , he said.
The statement came as law firm Schillings, acting for the duchess, filed a High Court claim against British newspaper Mail on Sunday and Associated Newspapers for publishing a letter from Megan to her father in 2018.
