Meghan Markle Duchess of Sussex has compared breastfeeding her child to "running a marathon". The 39-year-old opened up about a significant number of things in a web recording with her spouse, Prince Harry, for World Mental Health Day.
Meghan spoke about their royal trip to South Africa last year and how balancing her duties and motherhood took its toll. The Duchess recalled the moment a journalist asked her on camera if she was okay during the tour, an interview that was widely publicised.
She said at that point she was defenceless on the grounds that she was worn out. Baby Archie was a just mere four and a half months old at the time of royals' SA tour.
OK! reported that Meghan said she was exhausted on the last day of their South African tour and she was just about to give her son a bath when the journalist asked her if she was okay. Archie is now 17 months old. According to IOL, the mom-of-one said: "Breastfeeding is like running a marathon, so between every official engagement I was running back to make sure our son was fed."
