Meghan Markle appeared to moan about the spotlight surrounding her new royal life during a chat with pop superstar Pharrell Williams.
The Duchess of Sussex was overheard saying "they don't make it easy" when the Happy singer praised their "wonderful union".
Meghan and Prince Harry were guests of honour at the European premier of the Lion King in London's Leicester Square on Sunday night and met many of the film's stars on the red carpet.
Pharrell, who did the soundtrack for the CGI-remake, was clearly very excited to meet the royal, who welcomed their first child in May.
He said: "So happy for your union. Love is amazing. It's wonderful.
"Don't ever take that for granted but what it means in today's climate, I just wanted to tell you it's so significant for so many of us. Seriously. We cheer you guys on."
Meghan smiles before replying: "Thank you, they don't make it easy."
This could be a reference to a number of negative reports about the Duchess in the press in the past week, including quotes from sources at Wimbledon who said she was a "nightmare" when she went to cheer on her pal Serena Williams .
The Duchess of Sussex sat in the middle of a large number of empty seats and fellow tennis fans sitting near her were banned from taking photos of her – even if they weren't trying to – despite the match and clips of her sitting in the crowd being shown live on the BBC.
A source at the All England Club has told The Times that the new mum was a "nightmare" and organising the visit had been difficult.
They said: "She wanted to come incognito but there was problems. They couldn't invite her into the royal box because was wearing jeans but that didn't really matter because all she wanted to do was come and watch Serena."
Another added: "It was a nightmare, she was a nightmare."
The source also claims that Meghan made a "massive faux pas" by going to see her friend Serena but not staying to watch Andy Murray afterwards.
They said: "Andy Murray was on Court 1 afterwards and it was a massive faux pas not to watch a Brit when she is signed up to the royal family."
The report came just days after official Palace reports revealed Meghan and Harry's refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage cost the taxpayer £2.4m – and it's not even finished yet.
The expense of refitting the property from five separate flats into one big five-bedroom family house is over 10 times the cost of the average UK home.
