By mid-Friday afternoon, ‘#WeLoveYouMeghan’ was the no. 1 trending topic on the social media platform 

The hashtag was trending in less than an hour after British author Greg Hogben urged people to share their support.

Accounts on Twitter even began circulating Markle’s address so that fans could send their written words of encouragement. 

An upcoming ITV documentary follows Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on their recent of southern Africa, and includes an interview with ITN News At Ten anchor Tom Bradby.

Asked about the impact the intense public scrutiny has had on her ‘physical and mental health’ and how Harry is being ‘protective’ of her after what happened to his mother, she replies: ‘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 new born – 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…’

She continues: ‘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.’

Tom asks her: ‘And the answer is, would it be fair to say, not really OK, as in it’s really been a struggle?’ Meghan, visibly upset, then replies: ‘Yes.’

There had been thousands of tweets under the hashtag, with fans saying they hope the duchess sees the positive comments. 

The interview comes following months of controversy involving Meghan and Harry.

The six week break follows Harry and Meghan’s ten-day tour of southern Africa, footage of which will be seen on ITV Sunday night in a documentary by broadcaster Tom Bradby.

Speaking ahead of the programme, Mr Bradby, a friend of Harry, said he believed the couple are ‘vulnerable and bruised’. In the hour-long documentary, Harry reportedly voices his desire to leave the UK, describing Cape Town in South Africa as ‘an amazing place to be able to base ourselves’.

He, however, acknowledged that such a move would be very difficult, if not impossible.

A Royal source told The Sunday Times: ‘The Duke and Duchess have a full schedule of engagements and commitments until mid-November, after which they will be taking some much-needed family time.’

The couple are expected to spend their first Christmas with their son Archie, who was born in May, with the Queen and other members of the Royal Family at Sandringham in Norfolk. It is understood they will fly to Los Angeles next month to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland. 

Their recent tour included a visit by Harry, 35, to a minefield in Angola, which saw the Prince retrace his mother Diana’s footsteps 22 years after her death.

During an emotional interview for the documentary, Meghan admitted feeling ‘vulnerable’ during her pregnancy and thanked Mr Bradby for asking about how she was feeling.

‘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 said.

Harry, meanwhile, spoke candidly about the pressures of being a member of the Royal Family in the spotlight.

When asked by Mr Bradby if he has yet ‘found peace’, Harry said the grief of his mother’s death still remains, describing it as ‘a wound that festers’.

Tom Bradby: ‘He’s obviously very concerned about protecting you, and protecting you from what he felt his mother went through. 

‘Its obviously an area one has to tiptoes into very gently. But I don’t know what the impact is on your physical or mental health of all the pressure that you clearly feel under 

Meghan: ‘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 new born – you know…’

Tom: ‘It’s a long time ago but I remember yeah!’

Meghan: ‘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.’

Tom: ‘And the answer is, would it be fair to say, not really OK, as in it’s really been a struggle?’

Meghan: ‘Yes.’
