When asked by host Tom Bradby if he feels at peace with his mother's death, or whether it is "still a wound that festers", Harry said: "I think probably a wound that festers."

Looking glassy-eyed, he added: "I think being part of this family, in this role, in this job, every single time I see a camera, every single time I hear a click, every single time I see a flash it takes me straight back."

He added: "So in that respect, it's the worst reminder of her life as opposed to the best."

The new mum told Tom Bradby that she isn't "okay" and revealed it has been a "struggle" behind the scenes, as she adapts to life as a royal, a mother and a newlywed.

She told him: "Look, any woman, especially when they're pregnant, you're really vulnerable, so that was made really challenging. And then when you have a newborn, you know, and especially when you're a woman, it's a lot."

You're really vulnerable, so that was made really challenging.

Her words struck a chord with viewers, some of whom dubbed her the new 'peoples' princess', but not everyone could get behind her.

Among Meghan's detractors was controversial GMB host Piers Morgan, who slammed the Duchess on Twitter and called her a "good actress" after hearing her comments in the programme.

Elsewhere, the BBC's source played down reports that William is "furious" with Harry, after he used the documentary to address rumours of a rift between them.
