Meghan Markle Reveals She Suffered A Miscarriage In July
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently shared the devastating news of their pregnancy loss with their families, “There is a lot of sadness around the family,” the palace source says.
With the time of reflection around Thanksgiving approaching, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to talk openly about their loss, a source close to the couple adds, stressing that it is an intensely private matter.
In her heartbreaking account, Meghan revealed that she suffered the miscarriage in July of this year.
“I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.” Meghan, 39, wrote in a New York Times essay on Wednesday. She explained how she dropped to the floor after feeling a sharp cramp while changing her son’s diaper.

“Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’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. I tried to imagine how we’d heal. In the pain of our loss, my husband and I discovered that in a room of 100 women, 10 to 20 of them will have suffered from miscarriage. Yet despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning.” Meghan added.
She then shared that she hopes more people will be open about miscarriages.
“As we plan for a holiday unlike any before many of us separated from our loved ones, alone, sick, scared, divided, and perhaps struggling to find something, anything, to be grateful for let us commit to asking others, ‘Are you OK?’ As much as we may disagree, as physically distanced as we may be, the truth is that we are more connected than ever because of all we have individually and collectively endured this year,” she shared.
