Cape Town - Prince William is reportedly worried about his brother, Prince Harry, and hopes he and Meghan are alright after watching their emotional documentary.

The duke and duchess of Sussex recently opened up about their struggles with mental health in a documentary about the couple’s royal African tour, Metro UK reports.

In the documentary, which aired on ITV last night, Harry opened up about his grief surrounding his mother’s death and even described it as a "wound that festers."

The couple also revealed they were struggling with the intense scrutiny from British tabloids, BBC reports.

A Kensington Palace source said the duke and duchess of Sussex are "in a fragile place".

Harry addressed the state of his relationship with his brother, admitting he and William have good and bad days, ELLE reports.

"Part of this role and part of this job and this family, being under the pressure that it’s under, stuff happens but we’re brothers," he said.

"We'll always be brothers, and we’re certainly on different paths at the moment, but I’ll always be there for him, and he’ll always be there for me.

"We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy, but I love him dearly, and the majority of the stuff is created out of nothing, but you know, as brothers you have good days, you have bad days."

Meanwhile, Meghan got candid about the pressures of life in the royal spotlight.

"You've got to feel happy, and I think 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, and the biggest thing I know is that I never thought this would be easy, but I thought it would be fair, and that's the part that's really hard to reconcile. I don't know—just take each day as it comes."
