Meghan, who welcomed Lilibet in June this year, said that although the couple were “overjoyed” with the birth of their first daughter, they struggled in this initial period.
In a letter addressed to Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives and the Majority Leader of the US Senate, she described how she did not face many of the dilemmas and difficulties many American parents face when looking after their children.
She told the US politicians that she counted herself lucky that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “weren’t confronted with the harsh reality of either spending those first few critical months with [their] baby or going back to work.
She added: “We knew we could take her home, and in that vital (and sacred) stage, devote any and everything to our kids and to our family.
“We knew that by doing so we wouldn’t have to make impossible choices about childcare, work, and medical care that so many have to make every single day.”
