A royal insider told OK! magazine that palace life and public scrutiny have been tough on a pregnant Duchess of Sussex: "The constant gossip and scrutiny has been tough.
"Meghan's tried to play it off like she isn't fazed by the chatter. But deep down its taken a toll and caused a lot of stress."
Royal insiders shared with OK! magazine what Meghan has been telling her friends in private about the feud rumours as well as what life is really like at Kensington Palace.
A source close to the couple told the publication: "Meghan doesn't want to address the rumours in public but feels it's very important that people know the real story."
The source continued to tell the publication that the truth differs greatly to what the public reads: "Yes, Meghan hit some bumps as she transitioned into her new role, but things are far more pleasant than most know - especially with Kate."
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first baby together in April.
