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.

On the other hand, the Community alum Yvette Nicole Brown also praised the couple's brave move through her Twitter handle. Apart from that, Monica Lewinsky tweeted, "A private pain shared publicly may not help you, but it helps someone."

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.

I think its important to share news of miscarriage. Many women feel guilt and shame when they undergo something which is actually so common!

As someone who has experienced my own miscarriage and that of my daughter, we’re not looking for sympathy. No one needs the sympathy of hater strangers. Coming forward may help someone.

Extremely sad and heartbreaking.

It's really sad to see how people go all out on her over every single thing she does. Must be so hard and overwhelming for both Harry and Meghan. Kate is no saint. These are power struggles to be on top. But the backlash towards Meghan is heart wrenching.

Drama queen

She lost her child. She's allowed to grieve and heal however she wants. If that includes telling others about the process of her healing then so be it. She believes that sharing her experience may help others. It's a brave thing to do, especially seeing as there are people like you who call her a drama queen. And why do you call her a drama queen? Women who miscarry often go through huge emotional turmoil and feel immense guilt and shame about what they've experienced. You don't really need to go out of your way to be a dick. I somehow doubt you'd say this to any women's face so maybe be more considerate about what you type on the Internet.

Miscarriage is not taboo... the mere fact that SHE is saying that has turned it into something shameful. It’s a private matter...period!

Where were haters when Chrissy Teigen did the same thing? Or Zara Tindall? Why didn't u spread hate then? I'm proud of her that she is at least coming forward to speak against the taboo of miscarriage.
