"The impact it was having on her that we would then see and feel was very hard to understand", William said in the documentary.

The Gravity star went on to directly reference the alleged handwritten letter, in which Meghan reportedly accused her dad Thomas of having "broken my heart into a million pieces" by telling falsehoods to the media.

"I believe she cried more to do with the press intrusion than anything else in her life".

Clooney, 57, addressed the rumours he's going to be the royal baby's godfather.

Former Suits actress Meghan, 37, is estranged from her father following a string of high-profile incidents since she became engaged to Harry.

Williams also explains why there's such a big debate about Camilla's future title when Charles becomes king: "There has not been an official notification, and Charles has said in a few interviews, he used the word queen, it's obviously more Charles' expectation and wish that she would be queen, but at the moment the official line is that she'll be princess consort".

In a 2017 BBC documentary, William described paparazzi who followed her as "a pack of dogs" that "followed her, chased her, harassed her, called her names, spat at her, trying to get a reaction, to get that photograph of her lashing out".

"Women, in particular, are constantly pitted against and compared with each other in a way that reminds me of how people tried to portray Diana and me all the time as rivals, which is something neither of us ever really felt", Fergie wrote.

Five unnamed friends of the duchess spoke to People in an effort to counter the "global bullying" directed at her. Making them even busier, of course, is their baby who's due to join the royal fold around the end of March or early April.

Thomas Markle Snr says the letter was sent by his daughter.

"While the objective of Meghan's letter was very much to fix the relationship with her father, she knew in her heart of hearts that this was going to be released to the papers", he said.

However, this recent scandal is the one that may have possibly pushed her over the edge when it comes to her family, and a source said that she isn't planning on releasing a comment about her father leaking her private letter because she doesn't want to make things worse.

She later added: "He did try to contact her she was the one who ignored him and all of us".

Harry and Meghan watched a special performance of The Wider Earth, a critically acclaimed theatrical production about the young Charles Darwin's expedition on HMS Beagle.
