Meghan Markle reveals she had miscarriage - ABC News

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, has revealed she has had a miscarriage in an opinion article published in the New York Times.

The Duchess, who is married to Prince Harry, wrote about the experience in detail, saying it took place on a morning in July this year when she was caring for Archie, the couple's 18-month-old son.

"I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second," Meghan wrote.

The Duchess said she was sharing her story to help break the silence around an all too common tragedy.

"Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few," she wrote.

"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.

The 39-year-old described how tragedy struck on a "morning that began as ordinarily as any other day: Make breakfast. Feed the dogs. Take vitamins. Find that missing sock. Pick up the rogue crayon that rolled under the table. Throw my hair in a ponytail before getting my son from his crib."

"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."

Later, she said, she "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."

Speaking out abut the miscarriage was at odds with the royal family's usual policy. Senior members rarely reveal details about their personal lives.

Queen Elizabeth II has never publicly discussed her private life in her 68-year reign.

The Duchess and Prince Harry stepped back from royal duties and moved to the United States earlier this year.

They have been trying to create a new role for themselves outside the constraints of life in Britain's royal bubble.
