"Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant you’re really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a newborn – you know … And especially as a woman, it’s a lot. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed it’s, well…And, also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m OK. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes," she added. 

After that important interview, Bradby said Harry and Meghan's mental health issues affected his own.

I “was clearly influenced by my own experience and I didn’t think they were in great shape, and so I altered the way I was planning to do the documentary," he said in an interview with The Times. “I don’t regret doing that. There may be other times in the future in a whole range of subjects that I will alter my approach if I sense something similar.”

When he was asked why he asked the former actress that candid question, he said, “I felt like there was an untold story there. And I decided to try to bring that side out."

During the interview, Bradby also shared how long Prince William and Prince Harry have been fighting for

"It used to be quite a straightforward thing, right, because they weren't arguing and life was simple," he said "And then it just slowly descended into something that was difficult — personally and publicly — really over the past year and a half."
