The Suits star, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle, revealed a very sad story today. TMZ reports that the Duchess of Sussex suffered a miscarriage back in July. Interestingly enough, she admitted this when a reporter asked Markle a simple question, “Are you okay?”
Markle wrote an op-ed piece for the NYT, revealing on a July morning she was tending to baby Archie … “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.“
Her worst fears came true.
“I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, I was losing my second.” she wrote.
She then continued describing her emotions and heartbreak … “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.“
Meghan confessed, “I tried to imagine how we’d heal” … and then, months later, she remembered that reporter’s simple question, “Are you okay?” She recalled how her answer resonated with people … that she was NOT okay, and it was liberating to honestly explain.
She said she wanted to share these sad news.
“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few. 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.” she said.
Afterwards, she continued about the year 2020 and how it is one of the worst years in the history of mankind.
