Meghan Markle Praised by Fans after Candid ITV Interview
Netizens can't seem to get enough of Meghan Markle's recently published ITV interview as it came across as one "raw" and brutally "honest" for a British royal.
The former actress has become a subject of great inspiration for netizens because of her honest interview on "Harry and Meghan: An African Journey."
Markle, who has been married to Prince Harry for over one year, had a somewhat rare discussion with Tom Bradby on the behind-the-scenes documentary of her and Harry's recently-concluded 10-day tour of Africa.
The Duchess honestly discussed motherhood but, even more importantly, touched on being the subject of public criticism like she has been.
The heartwarming moment came close towards the end of the documentary and had the new mother explaining how the biting criticisms have affected her thus far.
Sharing on life in the spotlight, she said:
"I've said for a long time to H - that's what I call him - it's not enough to just survive something, right? That's not the point of life. You've got to thrive, you've got to feel happy."
Markle went on to relate her heartfelt wishes for the future. She concluded her heartfelt speech by labeling her husband and child as the "best" and the two most important people in her life.
Following the release of the documentary, netizens have taken to social media platforms to praise Markle for her brutal honesty even while speaking on such a public platform.

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual #WellChildAwards in London. WellChild aims to ensure every child and young person living with serious health needs has the best chance to thrive with the support and medical care needed in the comfort of their own home. The Duke of Sussex became Patron of WellChild in 2007, and last year both The Duke and Duchess attended the awards to honour the children and families that WellChild supports. The Duke, who first came to these awards over a decade ago, shared in his remarks tonight: “Last year when my wife and I attended we knew we were expecting our first child - no one else did at the time, but we did - and I remember squeezing Meghan’s hand so tightly during the awards, both of us thinking what it would be like to be parents one day, and more so, what it would be like to do everything we could to protect and help our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time. And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of you pulls at my heart strings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own.” • To find out more about tonight’s event and how you can support this very special organisation, please visit @WellChild Photos ©️ PA images

"Meghan speaks so beautifully and honestly. Shes doesn't twist her words if anything, she's so gracious and humble. But what shocks is how some brits are so negative towards their interracial marriage and the fact she's mixed race. Get over it. #HarryAndMeghan."

In Tembisa, Johannesburg, today The Duke and Duchess visited to meet young entrepreneurs at the YES hub - a hive for creativity and social enterprise. Their visit was an amazing tour of the ingenuity and opportunity – seeing businesses that varied from food to essential sanitary products for local women. During their visit, they were able to sample food from ‘Chef Mish’ - a local masterchef winner - which he makes at the site as part of his catering business and cafe. They then joined YES community members to take part in training and tests that will help them gain skills and find work. On the third stop today, entrepreneur Moss showed The Duke and Duchess the organic produce he's growing in the township with aquaponics - supplying local restaurants. And finally, The Duke and Duchess met the women behind the amazing Blossom Care Solutions - who are making 80,000 sanitary pads every month for women in their community. They are 100% compostable, and provide an essential low-cost product for women and girls. The Duchess has long campaigned on this issue and wrote in Time magazine in 2017, saying: “In communities all over the globe, young girls’ potential is being squandered because we are too shy to talk about the most natural thing in the world. To that I say: we need to push the conversation, mobilize policy making surrounding menstrual health initiatives, support organizations who foster girls’ education from the ground up, and within our own homes, we need to rise above our puritanical bashfulness when it comes to talking about menstruation.” • See our previous post to see The Dukes speech #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica Photo ©️ PA images
It is this emotional interview that has become one widely known to inspire women to admit that they're "not okay," much like the 38-year-old royal did.
Mirror reports that Markle, who held back tears as she admitted to how the public scrutiny has caused her emotional turmoil, has become a source of inspiration for many other women like her.
