Alan Jones has attacked Meghan Markle after she admitted struggling with life in the spotlight in a new documentary featuring her husband Harry.  

Meghan and Harry: An African Journey - which aired in Australia last week - followed the couple as they ventured through poverty-stricken parts of Africa on a royal tour. 

Meghan said in an emotional one-on-one interview that she was 'not okay' and admitted the constant reports from the British tabloid press were to blame.

  Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will take Archie to spend Thanksgiving in LA with grandmother Doria Ragland - as the royals kick off six-week holiday break with 'much-needed family time' Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will take baby Archie to California next month, where the seventh-in-line to the throne will spend the Thanksgiving holiday with the American side of his family. Los Angeles-born Markle will jet across the pond just in time for November 28 when they'll celebrate Turkey Day with the former actress' yoga instructor mother Doria Ragland.'The duke and duchess have a full schedule of engagements and commitments until mid-November, after which they will be taking some much-needed family time,' a royal source told the Sunday Times.

Jones, a 2GB broadcaster, took to the airwaves on Monday morning to criticise the couple and said the documentary 'borders on insulting' and Meghan was 'carrying on.'

'In the documentary, we're told Meghan gives a rare glimpse of her new life and struggles as a royal and new a mother. It borders on insulting. 

'Imagine spending time in Africa around the poorest of the poor — people who have no possessions — and you're carrying on. Have these two people got no awareness at all?' Jones said.

Jones lashed out at Meghan's statement regarding the struggles she faces in her royal duties and claimed it was 'self-indulgent rubbish.'

'Has she ever wondered whether the poor people in Africa are okay? I've seen them — these poor kids with flies on their face and emaciated — and the 38-year-old is complaining that people haven't asked if she was okay. 

He lambasted her for having six weeks off before Christmas for a holiday in Los Angeles.  

Jones also criticised the couple for championing efforts against climate change and labelled them as hypocrites.  

'Just imagine, Meghan Markle posting photos of Justin Trudeau on climate change despite taking private jets everywhere. The way these two going there'll be a lot of Aussies saying no thanks [to the monarchy].' 

Jones' rant comes after Prince Harry announced he will be launching legal action on Meghan's behalf for media intrusion of her privacy. 

Harry wrote a statement accompanying the legal action, which was published on the Sussex official website.  

'I've seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person,' Harry wrote. 

'I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.
