Along with the Duke of Sussex, Meghan Markle appeared on the "Teenager Therapy" podcast in October 2020. The podcast was hosted by five seniors at an Anaheim, California, high school.

During her appearance, the Duchess of Sussex opened up about the toll that social media can take on mental health, as reported by PEOPLE.

Although Markle admitted that social media is an excellent method to connect, she said it also winds up being a place where there is a ton of detachment.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.

"I can speak personally too, I'm told that in 2019 I was the most trolled person in the entire world, male or female," the former actress added.

Markle was pregnant with son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor at the time. "Now, 8 months of that I wasn't even visible — I was on maternity leave or with a baby," she recalled. "But what was able to be manufactured and churned out, it's almost unsurvivable."

"I don't care if you're 15 or you're 25, if people are saying things about you that aren't true, what that does to your mental and emotional health is so damaging," Markle continued.

Markle started dating Harry in June 2016. The couple's engagement was announced on November 27, 2017. Markle and Harry exchanged their wedding vows on May 19, 2018, at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

On May 6, 2019, they welcomed their first child together, son Archie, who is seventh in line to the throne. In January 2020, Markle and Harry announced their intention to step back as senior members of the royal family.
