Meghan Markle recently wrote an article on The Losses We Share for the New York Times and penned down details surrounding her ‘unbearable grief’.
The Duchess of Sussex began by revealing that her miscarriage occurred back in July, and while describing her pain, she dubbed it ‘heart wrenching' for both her and Prince Harry.
Meghan admitted that at the time, she felt a ‘sharp cramp’ while changing son Archie’s diaper. "After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp. I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right."
She went on to say, "I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second. 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."
Later on into the article the Duchess shed light on her intentions behind sharing her tragic story and admitted that it was all due to Covid-19 and the Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests.
Meghan believes opening up about her own loss might encourage others to talk about their personal grief’s. She concluded her piece by reminding readers to ask others how they're doing and if they are ok, since it’s important to talk about all kinds of losses.
