"Anything like this is always storytelling, as you know. And I went intending to make a documentary that was always gonna be about their work in Africa and then a little bit about where they are at in life. And I knew that everything wasn't entirely rosy behind the scenes."
In snippets released by ITV, Meghan and Harry speak of the emotional toll being in such an enormously high profile relationship has taken.
"I really tried to adopt this British sensibility of a stiff upper lip. I tried, I really tried. But I think that what that does internally is probably really damaging,” a tearful Meghan says at one point.
And the couple’s vulnerability became all too apparent to Bradby.
"I think the reality I found was just a couple that just seemed a bit bruised and vulnerable," Bradby said. "I think with mental health...we have to be very careful with what words you use, but 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. And you know as well as I do, as a journalist, there are different moments. And that just felt like the approach I should take on this occasion."
Another snippet form the doco sees Meghan open up about the huge pressure of balancing life as a royal and that of a new mother to her son, Archie.
"Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant, you're really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a new born - you know... And especially as a woman, it's a lot. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed..."
The 38-year-old added: "And, also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I'm OK. But it's a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes."
