Meghan Markle has announced she suffered a miscarriage in July this year in a personal account.

The Duchess of Sussex, 39, shared the heartbreaking news in an article with the New York Times.

She explained how she felt a “sharp cramp” and “dropped to the floor” while changing her and Prince Harry’s son Archie, one, earlier this year.

Meghan was later taken to hospital in Los Angeles, where she was comforted by her “heartbroken” husband Harry, 36.

Describing the moment she realised “something wasn’t right” she wrote in the account: “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.

“I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second”.

Meghan continued: “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. Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal.”

The Duchess of Sussex continued to describe how she looked back at a moment she was asked by royal editor Chris Ship if she was “OK” as he followed the couple on their royal tour to South Africa last year.

She wrote: “I answered him honestly, not knowing that what I said would resonate with so many — new moms and older ones, and anyone who had, in their own way, been silently suffering.

“My off-the-cuff reply seemed to give people permission to speak their truth. But it wasn’t responding honestly that helped me most, it was the question itself.”

Meghan continued to explain how this experience made her realise how she and her husband Harry could “begin to heal”.

The Duchess explained: “Sitting in a hospital bed, watching my husband’s heart break as he tried to hold the shattered pieces of mine, I realized that the only way to begin to heal is to first ask, ‘Are you OK?’”
