Britain's Prince Harry has played down rumours of a rift between himself and his brother Prince William but has admitted they have "good day and bad days".

The speculation was prompted when Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle split from their joint charity with Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, earlier this year.

When asked about the royal rift rumours during the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, Prince Harry responded: "We are brothers. We will always be brothers.

"We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him as I know he will always be there for me.

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

In the documentary, Prince Harry described the way he deals with the pressures of his life as being a matter of "constant management".

"Part of this job, and part of any job, like everybody, is putting on a brave face and turning a cheek to a lot of the stuff, but again, for me and again for my wife, of course there is a lot of stuff that hurts, especially when the majority of it is untrue", he said.

"But all we need to do is focus on being real, and focus on being the people that we are, and standing up for what we believe in.

"I will not be bullied into playing a game that killed my mum."

His wife, former Suits actress Meghan Markle, spoke about the struggles of becoming a mother to their five-month-old son Archie while living under the glare of the media spotlight in the programme.

Asked how she was coping with the pressure, she said: "Look, any woman - especially when they are pregnant - you're really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a new born - you know?" 

"And especially as a woman, it's a lot. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed it's, well...

"And also, thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I'm OK. But it's a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes."

Asked if it would be fair to say it had "really been a struggle", Meghan replied: "Yes."
