Meghan Markle revealed how difficult it is to be under scrutiny from the public and the press in a video and this is attracting a lot of support for the Duchess of Sussex.

After the release of the footage of the emotional interview, Meghan Markle’s fans are tweeting messages of support with the hashtag #WeLoveYouMeghan.

“Not many people have asked if I’m okay, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes,” she told Tom Bradby of ITV.

Fans of the duchess had a rare look of her unfiltered, vulnerable side in the footage.

Meghan shares the pressures of being in the spotlight as well as the intense public scrutiny while she was pregnant with her son Archie.

“Any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable. So, that was made really challenging,” she said during the clip, looking visibly upset.

“And, then when you have a newborn, 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.”

Meghan thanked her interviewer, ITV’s Tom Bradby, for asking how she was doing. “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,” she said.

Viewers were moved and they took to Twitter, unhappy that Meghan was going though a tough time and condemning the critics and tabloids that caused her to feel this way.

Author Greg Hogben encouraged his followers to post the hashtag #WeLoveYouMeghan to show support.

The hashtag is the number two trending topic in the US thanks to her loyal fanbase in the country.

Netizens praised Meghan’s strength and applauded her for being honest about her struggles.

Some of them called out her racist and misogynist detractors.

Fellow mothers who experienced postpartum depression understood what it’s like to be vulnerable after giving birth, and women of colour related to her feeling criticized and ostracized.
