Markle and Martin have been friends for almost 10 years, he famously worked on her make-up on her wedding day with Prince Harry.
Martin says the people around Markle, who have known her personal struggles dealing with the media struggle didn't know how to handle the situation, he explains:
"We just didn't know what to do or how to help, but I feel like just putting this out there has been challenging. It's hopefully demystified a lot about what's been going on over there."
Martin tells CBS This Morning that participating in the documentary has been helpful for Markle. Speaking about the moment she admits that she has been struggling with the media scrutiny, he adds:
"You can see it in her face when she reacts to him when he asks her that question, she takes a moment, she pauses before she goes into it and you really see that in her eyes."
