In a shocking op-ed published on the New York Times website on Wednesday, November 25, Meghan Markle revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage last July. A drama that devastated Prince Harry.

By moving to Montecito, California, Meghan Markle and Harry hoped to offer a better future to Archie, but also to enlarge their family. A dream that the couple touched with their fingertips this summer, as the former actress recounts in an op-ed piece published on Wednesday, November 25 on the New York Times website. Victim of a miscarriage, the Duchess of Sussex has decided to speak out to break a taboo and help women facing this terrible experience, but also men, often powerless, as was the case for Harry.

Hospitalized after a strong pain in her lower abdomen, little Archie’s mother remembers her husband’s distress. “I felt the wetness in his palm and kissed his hand where our tears were flowing. As I looked at the cold white walls, my eyes became glassy. I tried to imagine how we would heal,” she said, and continued, “Sitting in a hospital bed, watching my husband’s heart crack as he tried to put my broken pieces back together, I realized that the only way to begin healing was to first ask myself, ‘Are you okay?

I knew as I grabbed my firstborn that I was losing my second

Reflecting on the day their lives turned upside down, Meghan Markle said she “felt a severe cramp” while changing her son’s diaper. “I let myself fall to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the joyful melody contrasting sharply with my feeling that something was wrong. I knew as I grabbed my firstborn that I was losing my second.”

An “insurmountable grief” that many couples face “but few people talk about”. “In the grief of our loss, my husband and I discovered that in a room of 100 women, 10 to 20 of them would have suffered a miscarriage,” she says, and advises those who have lost a child to break what she considers still a “taboo”: “By being invited to share our pain, we take the first steps towards healing together.”
