Meghan Markle Shares Heartbreaking Loss After Suffering A Miscarriage During Summer
She opened up about her grief in a recent personal essay for the New York Times.
The Duchess of Sussex has revealed that she suffered a devastating loss in July.
The mother-of-one revealed that she shared “unbearable grief” with her husband Prince Harry, after the pair went through a miscarriage.
Explaining when it occurred, Meghan noted that she knew she was losing her second child as she changed her one-year-old son, Archie.
“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.
“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.”
Continuing, Meghan added that the grieving started to set in straight away, she wondered how the pair would ever be able to move on, after such heartbreaking realisation and loss.
“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.”
Explaining that it was journalist Tom Brady’s question of “are you OK?” that really made Meghan and people all around the world who watched that interview, simply ask themselves the same question, Meghan realised that she was in fact, not OK, and it was the question itself that helped her the most.
In that moment she realised the only way to heal is to ask herself if she’s OK. and so, decided to share her personal story in the hopes to help others. Coming up to Christmas, Meghan notes that it’s important to check in with yourself, and with others, and ask yourself if you too, are OK.
