Married At First Sight's Jessika Power has thrown her support behind Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after stepping down from their senior Royal duties. 

Following The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's decision to shy away from the spotlight going forward, the Australian reality star has revealed she sympathises with them. 

'I definitely understand why they're doing this. They've been slammed since the day they got together and have a baby now. Sometimes I want to step away from it all too,' Jessika told Daily Mail Australia on Thursday.

The controversial television personality, 28, said she hopes the Sussex's decision to live between the UK and North America brings them happiness and privacy.  

She explained that she regularly wishes she could also retreat from her own public profile, after finding fame on the Nine social experiment show in January.

'Every time I go to my local IGA [Supermarket] some old man will want to take loads of pictures of me to show his grandchildren,' she laughed. 

'Or a group of young people will want selfies and ask hundreds of questions,' added Jessika, clarifying she loves her fans and their support, but is sometimes in a rush.
