A “bruised and vulnerable” Duke of Sussex was advised to “tell the truth” before he gave his dramatic documentary interview, the programme’s presenter has revealed.

Harry and Meghan’s candid on-screen chat with ITV News At Ten anchor Tom Bradby gave a glimpse into the struggles they face as newlyweds and new parents, living in the public eye.

But Bradby, a long-time friend of the duke, said before filming the ITV documentary he knew everything was not entirely “rosy” behind the scenes, and he now hoped everyone would pause for breath.

Speaking on the US breakfast show Good Morning America the presenter said: “We had a couple of private heart-to-hearts before we did the interview and I said, ‘Let’s just go out and tell the truth as you see it.’

'Being abused as a child is a life sentence' - Five survivors share their stories

  'Being abused as a child is a life sentence' - Five survivors share their stories 'Being abused as a child is a life sentence' - Five survivors share their storiesMore than 4,000 survivors have shared their experiences with the Truth Project in England and Wales and, of the 3,265 accounts analysed for research, some 46% said they had only been eight when abused for the first time.

“The thing about Harry is, whether in private or in public, if you ask him an honest question he’ll give you an honest answer, for better or worse.”

In the documentary, filmed during the Sussexes’ recent official visit to southern Africa, the duke said he and his brother the Duke of Cambridge were now “on different paths” and have “good days” and “bad days” in their relationship.

Meghan described the past year as a member of the royal family as “hard” and said her British friends had warned her not to marry Harry.

The duchess told the programme she tried to cope with the pressures of her new life by putting on a “stiff upper lip”, but she was not prepared for the intensity of the tabloid interest.

Bradby added: “I knew that everything wasn’t entirely rosy behind the scenes. But all the same I had intended to turn up doing a more conventional, journalistic job, maybe beforehand I told them I was going to have to put some pretty pointed questions.

Harry Dunn's family to launch legal action against Foreign Office

  Harry Dunn's family to launch legal action against Foreign Office Harry Dunn's family has told Sky News they will take legal action against the Foreign Office over the way the government handled the death of their son. The teenager's parents, Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn, have instructed a top-level legal team to seek a judicial review into the way his case was dealt with.Human rights barrister Geoffrey Robertson, who has defended boxer Mike Tyson and former Brazilian president Lula da Silva, will be on the team.Mrs Charles and Mr Dunn have also condemned Northamptonshire Police's decision to send officers to the United States to interview Anne Sacoolas.

“The reality I found was just a couple that seemed a bit bruised and vulnerable – with mental health and all the rest of it you have to be careful what words you use – that was the story I found and it seemed the right journalistic thing to do, to try and tell that story as empathetically as I could.”

His comments came as a celebrity friend of the couple, singer James Blunt, praised Harry’s charity work and said the media coverage of the pair was almost akin to “bullying”.

The performer, known for his hit You’re Beautiful, said: “Him I know from the Army, he’s a very nice man, a really phenomenal soldier, who does a lot of work for other people, for charities, for veterans, for Sentebale charity, for children in Africa, and I think under great scrutiny they seem to try a lot for other people.

“So the vitriol seems a bit like leaning on bullying to me.”

A royal source told the BBC William was concerned about his brother following the documentary screening, and hoped Harry and Meghan were “all right”. The source added that the assessment of the Queen and other senior royals was that the couple were “in a fragile place”.

But a source close to the Sussexes told CNN the reaction to Harry’s comments on the ITV programme about being on a “different path” to his brother had been “hysterical”.

The source said the couple had “single-handedly modernised the monarchy” and added they were surrounded by people “afraid of and inexperienced” at how best to “deploy their value”.

Meanwhile, Meghan is the cover star of Tatler, for the magazine’s 310th anniversary issue. The December edition features an archive photo of the duchess, taken by Janick Lauren.

It debates “The Meghan issue”, with the cover headline asking “Does she conquer or divide?”, with writers like Lionel Shriver and Lynn Barber “taking sides”.
