Prince William has expressed concern for his brother Harry and wife Meghan, after the couple admitted struggling to cope with scrutiny from parts of the tabloid press. According to sources within Kensington Palace, the Duke of Cambridge is worried about his brother, and the couple are said to be 'in a fragile place'. Our Royal Correspondent Jonny Dymond has more details.

In Africa just weeks ago, they looked so happy.

I think he knows exactly what's going on.

They showed off their newborn son, they danced and laughed, but behind it all, two people struggling with their roles, their lives and an onslaught of criticism in Britain's best-selling papers. Harry and Meghan are one of the world's most photographed couples, but he made clear his deep discomfort at his very public life.

Every single time I see a camera, every single time I hear a click, every single time I see a flash, it takes me straight back. So, in that respect, it's the worst reminder of her life, as opposed to the best.

Harry believes the press tore down his mother Diana, Princess of Wales. Now he sees it happening to his wife. She is clearly horrified by how she has been portrayed. She reveals her friends' warnings to her as she considered marriage.

My British friends said to me, "I'm sure he's great, but you shouldn't do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life." And I very naively, I'm American, we don't have that there - "What are you talking about?"

And the brothers? Once they were a team, together, taking on the world, that relationship has changed.

Inevitably, you know, stuff happens, but, look, we're brothers, we'll always be brothers. We're certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him, as I know he'll always be there for me.

A Palace source says that Prince William is worried about his brother Harry and that the belief is that Harry and Meghan are in a fragile place. A decent break, it is said, is probably a good idea. The tone is of quite deep concern. "How do we make sure they are OK?", one official asked.

Harry has spoken before about his struggles with his own mental health. In Africa, he revealed that those struggles continue.

I thought I was out of the woods, and then suddenly it all came back and suddenly I realised, actually, no, this is something that I have to manage. Look, part of this job and part of any job, like everybody, means putting on a brave face.

It's all such a far cry from that spring Saturday a year-and-a-half ago when they married. Now, both of them are struggling, neither seems able to enjoy their public role and Harry remains haunted by the memory of his mother. Jonny Dymond, BBC News.
