During the doc Harry &Meghan: An African Journey, the couple talked openly about their struggles with fame – comments which have reportedly “worried” senior royals.

According to the One Young World website, Meghan is a long-standing supporter of the organisation, having joined as a counsellor at the 2014 summit in Dublin.

At that gathering, she addressed the young leaders on the importance of womens rights and the role men play in achieving equality, the groups website said.

Meghan is vice-president of the Queens Commonwealth Trust, which has partnered with One Young World to bring 53 people to the summit.

Co-founders Kate Robinson and David Jones said in a statement: “We are thrilled that the Duchess of Sussex will be returning to our stage.

She is a much-loved member of the One Young World community who has supported us since 2014.

“She’s an inspiration to young leaders all over the world and we’re delighted to be partnering with the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, of which the Duchess is Vice President, to provide scholarships for young leaders from every Commonwealth country to attend the One Young World Summit in London.”

Meghan appeared emotional during her interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby in Sunday’s doc.

Asked about the pressure of royal life, she said: “Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant youre really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a newborn you know

“And especially as a woman, its a lot. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed its, well

“And, also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if Im OK. But its a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”

Tom asks her directly if it is fair to say that it has been a struggle, and looking emotional, Meghan replies: “Yes.”
