The Duke and Duchess of Sussex filmed a documentary highlighting their visit to Southern Africa last month that will air on Sunday on ITV.

“It was a journey but not always the one I was expecting,” host Tom Bradby says in the first advertisement for the documentary.

“The story of their time in Africa was of passion for their work, private happiness, but also a world of pressure and pain behind the brave faces.”

Per ITV, “In this new documentary filmed on their tour of Africa, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex speak exclusively to Tom Bradby about the causes and issues they care most about, and their fresh and personal approach to being modern Royals.”

The 20-second clip features behind the scenes footage of their engagements in South Africa, Angola, Botswana and Malawi; as well as never-before-seen footage of their five-month-old son Archie Harrison during their visit with Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

The day after their visit ended, Bradby tweeted that he’d just finished filming with Harry and Meghan and that “I think it will explain a lot when it airs.”

On the eve of their final day in South Africa, Harry published a statement on a website registered as Sussex Official to reveal that Meghan would be taking legal action against the Mail on Sunday for publishing the contents of a letter she’d sent to her father.

Schillings, her chosen law firm, released a statement saying, “We have initiated legal proceedings against the Mail on Sunday, and its parent company Associated Newspapers, over the intrusive and unlawful publication of a private letter written by the Duchess of Sussex, which is part of a campaign by this media group to publish false and deliberately derogatory stories about her, as well as her husband. Given the refusal of Associated Newspapers to resolve this issue satisfactorily, we have issued proceedings to redress this breach of privacy, infringement of copyright and the aforementioned media agenda.”

Harry and Meghan: An African Journey airs Sunday on ITV at 9:00 pm BST.
