Harry and Meghan sat down with three of Teenager Therapy‘s hosts Gael, Kayla and Thomas and talked about removing the stigma around the issue of mental health.
In one of her most candid interviews to date, Meghan was asked how she was feeling, echoing her memorable moment of raw emotion during the ITV documentary Harry and Meghan: An African Journey.
She said: “Isn’t that funny, it was about a few years ago that someone asked me that. We were on a tour in South Africa. On the last day of the tour, we were just about to give Archie a bath, we were exhausted.”
Harry chimed in, explaining: “She was still breastfeeding at the time”. Meghan said: “A lot of people don’t know, it’s like running a marathon, so between every official engagement I was running back to make sure our son was fed, and it was a lot.

“At the very end the journalist asked me ‘Well, are you OK?’ and I didn’t realise that my answer would receive such an interest from around the world, because I said ‘Well thanks, people haven’t really asked me if I’m OK’.

“I didn’t think about that answer, I just answered honestly, because I was in a moment of vulnerability because I was tired because there was no presentation, it was just ‘Here’s where I am, I’m a mum who is with a four-and-half-month-old baby and we are tired.’
Turning the conversation back to the present day, Meghan said: “The reason it resonated with people is that everyone wants to be asked if they’re OK. So I would say… today, I’m doing well, thank you for asking.”
The Teenager Therapy podcast describes itself as “Five stressed, sleep-deprived, yet energetic teens sit down and talk about the struggles that come with being a teenager.”
