'MEGHAN'S NEW LIFE: THE REAL PRINCESS DIARIES' PREMIERES THURSDAY, NOV. 22

ABC News takes an up-close look at Meghan Markle's royal beginnings as the Duchess of Sussex in a prime-time special "Meghan's New Life: The Real Princess Diaries." Exploring how Meghan has been adjusting in the first weeks and months after her wedding, the one-hour special on her new life, new role and new family airs THURSDAY, NOV. 22 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network.

When biracial American actress Meghan Markle married Prince Harry nearly six months ago, it signaled to the world a new chapter for the monarchy. Now pregnant with her very first child and having completed her first international tour with her prince, the Duchess is officially on the world stage, where every move matters. "Meghan's New Life: The Real Princess Diaries" will examine the new family dynamics, how Princess Diana's daughters-in-law are honoring her legacy, Meghan's blossoming relationship with the Queen, her humanitarian work, and how she will navigate her pregnancy and raise a royal child in the spotlight.

"Meghan Markle's new life as the Duchess of Sussex is being followed closely with such hope and enthusiasm by millions who have been swept up in what seems a fairy tale story come to life," says executive producer Jeanmarie Condon. "This will be a fun and uplifting, but also realistic portrait of how her life has changed in the months since her emotional wedding day. We will look at her new role, her new life inside and outside the palace, and how things will change again when she and Prince Harry become parents to their first child, the newest addition to the royal family."

Alastair Bruce, who helped the Duchess of Sussex design her new coat of arms, will provide authentic insights into what Meghan's role is now, who is supporting her, what she must leave behind and what her new family will expect of her. He will lead a lineup of some of the most insightful and experienced royal commentators today from former palace insiders and historians to contemporaries of the young royals and longtime observers of the royal family.
