This weekend is the first time that couples have been seen together since Harry and Meghan dealt with the pressure to be present in public.

During an interview for an ITV documentary about South Africa, Meghan admitted to feeling vulnerable during her pregnancy and thanked Mr. Bradby for asking her how she felt.

"Thanks for asking, because not many people asked if I was fine, but it's a very real thing to go behind the scenes," she said.

Meanwhile, Harry spoke openly about the pressure to be a member of the royal family in the spotlight.

Asked by Mr. Bradby if he still "found peace," Harry said the pain of his mother's death still persisted, describing him as "a wound that festers."

Harry started rumors about a gap between the brothers and said, "Most of the things are made out of nothing, but as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days."

"We are certainly in different ways at the moment, but I will always be there for him, knowing that he will always be there for me. We do not see each other as often as we used to because we are so busy, but I love him very much. & # 39;
