In a heartbreaking piece for The New York Times, Meghan Markle revealed that she suffered a miscarriage earlier this year. The Duchess of Sussex, who is married to Prince Harry, shifted to the US before the pandemic engulfed the country and forced a lockdown. The former Suits actress now revealed that she was pregnant for the second time this summer but lost the baby in July. Recalling the events that unfolded that summer day, Meghan said that she was changing Archie's diaper when she felt a sharp cramp.

She recalls dropping down to the floor with Archie in her arms. She hummed a lullaby to keep herself and the baby calm when she felt something wasn't right. "I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second," she said. Hours later, she was in the hospital, holding on to Harry's hand. "I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears. Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over," she described the moment adding that she tried to imagine how they would heal from the tragedy. She recalled sitting in the hospital bed, watching Harry's heart break while he tried to gather Meghan's pieces. 

She penned that losing a child meant carrying "almost unbearable grief" which is experienced by many but spoken by few. As the couple deals with the pain, Meghan urges everyone that on this Thanksgiving, ask others, “Are you OK?” She added that although the physical distance, "we are more connected than ever because of all we have individually and collectively endured this year," she said. She concluded the piece by saying that she and Harry will be okay. 

Meanwhile, numerous celebs have lauded the couple over their decision to publicly talk about the miscarriage. Prince Harry's Uncle Earl Charles Spencer has said that he can understand the agony of the couple and added that it's a sad affair. Meanwhile, Ming-Na Wen recalled her own experience of a miscarriage while thanking Meghan Markle and Harry for sharing their story.

She picked a topic that would force people to not call her out. Remember all the zoom meetings in July? Smilely happy preaching she did? She was not required to do any of those zoom calls, especially if she was grieving, but the show must go on. Oh by the way when was the last time she asked her ill father “ Are you ok?” Don’t fall for her sanctimonious martyrdom.
