Meghan Markle emotionally reflected on pictures of a night at the Royal Albert Hall in 2019 when she was struggling with her mental health.
The Duchess of Sussex spoke for the first time about her struggles with her mental health during her time in the royal family.
In particular, Meghan spoke about an evening in 2019 when she and Harry attended a royal event at the Royal Albert Hall.
In the interview with Oprah, Meghan revealed she was in a very bad place mentally, and that the pictures from the event 'haunt' her.
She told Oprah: "In the pictures, I see how tightly his knuckles are gripped around mine.
"We are smiling, doing our job. In the Royal Box, when the lights went off, I was just weeping.”
The evening Meghan was referring to was on January 16, 2019, when the couple attended the Cirque du Soleil Premiere Of TOTEM.
At the time, Meghan was around five months pregnant with baby Archie.
For the occasion, Meghan wore a navy sequin dress, and gently cradled her baby bump as she met the cast of the performance.
While most of the pictures from the evening show Meghan and Harry smiling, it wasn't until the Oprah interview was aired in the US last night that people knew what was really going on.
