Meghan Markle received a lot of public support after ITV's documentary "Harry & Meghan: An African Journey," about the struggles she has faced dealing with life in the spotlight.

In the documentary, Meghan 


 it has been difficult dealing with the constant media attention and tabloid rumors, so she takes the pressure of living the public eye "one day at a time." Empathizing with her situation, Seymour 


"You never know. I never believe what the newspapers say anyway, so I don't know what the truth is. It's not easy being in the public eye."


Seymour is among many celebrities who have spoken out in support of Markle. "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star Kim Kardashian says she also feels sympathy for her.

The reality star admits that it is very difficult for anyone besides the couple to understand what they are going through.


Living in the public eye herself, Kardashian tells Australian outlet The Sunday Project that she can understand the couple's need for privacy and the measures they take to ensure their security.


Sarah Ferguson, who used to be married to Prince's Harry uncle, Prince Andrew, also expressed her concern for the duchess and revealed:

"I tend not to give advice because it is taken out of context, but I have been in Meghan's shoes, and I still am. There's always a twist of negativity and it just gets so sad and tiring; it's hard and mean." 

According to PEOPLE, Ferguson admits that it has been difficult for years with her dealing with all the security that comes with marrying into the royal family.

Just like Markle, she says that she also chose to speak out about her struggles so that other famous people who are dealing with the same issues would know that they are not alone.
