The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, penned a devastating essay for the New York Times that detailed a miscarriage she endured and kept private early this year.

The candid and very descriptive article starts off by describing how Meghan was going about her daily morning routine that included changing baby Archie’s diaper. It was in the midst of all this bliss that she felt an excruciating pain in her abdomen which would turn out to be a miscarriage.

“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 recounts vividly.

While the world was preoccupied with the pandemic, the Duchess and her husband Prince Harry where fighting for both her and their unborn baby’s life. Unfortunately, the baby could not be saved. “Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief,” she writes.

It took a while for Meghan to go public about the unfortunate event because talking about a miscarriage “remains taboo, riddled with shame”.

The Duchess, however, hopes that opening up about her story will change the narrative and encourage more women to do the same. She also left the following words of advice:

“When people ask how any of us are doing, and when they really listen to the answer, with an open heart and mind, the load of grief becomes lighter- for all of us.”
