Meghan Markle shared her thoughts on being called the ‘most trolled’ celebrity in a new interview.
The Duchess of Sussex has made an appearance on ‘Teenager Therapy’, a coming-of-age podcast aimed at listeners under the age of 20.
Markle was joined by her husband, Prince Harry, for a frank conversation with the young podcast hosts on World Mental Health Day, which took place on Saturday, October 10.

At the time, Markle and Prince Harry’s son was 5 months old and the royal family had completed their tour of Africa.
“I didn’t think about that answer, I just answered honestly,” Markle said while acknowledging how exhausted she was as a new mother and wife. “Because I was in a moment of vulnerability, because I was tired, because there was no presentation, it was just, here is where I am.”
