"She's a woman who is seven months pregnant and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same was that Diana was and its history repeating itself". (AAP) Meghan has faced eghan has also faced intense interest from the United Kingdom press since her relationship with Prince Harry was revealed.

Markle reportedly sent her father the five-page letter three months after her May 2018 wedding, the existence of which was published in the Daily Mail. "The impact it was having on her that we would then see and feel was very hard to understand", William said in the documentary.

The star drew comparisons between Meghan and the media's obsession with her late mother-in-law Princess Diana, who died in a auto accident after being chased by photographers.

"Dad, I'm so heartbroken, I love you", the letter reads.

Meghan and Harry were then shown round a pop up Darwin exhibition by producer Trish Wadley and met children from Urbanwise London, a charity that offers outdoor learning for local children.

Meghan has also faced intense interest from the unsparing United Kingdom press since her engagement to Prince Harry was announced in 2017.

Meghan and Harry's outing comes just one day after the expectant royal was defended by George Clooney, who attended the pair's wedding a year ago.

But the entire time she's been getting to know the in's and out's of her new in-laws (not to mention, getting up to speed on her recently assigned royal patronages), she's had loads of family drama to deal with simultaneously. "It's irresponsible. I'm sort of surprised by that".

In the deeply personal missive, Meghan accuses her father of breaking her heart "into a million pieces" by giving interviews to the press, fabricating stories and attacking her new husband.

Previous sensationalist headlines in British tabloids since Meghan's marriage to Harry have focused on her alleged "tantrums" and her "tit-for-tat war" with Catherine.
