Meghan Markle said the devastating loss of their child led to Prince Harry losing control of his emotions
Prince Harry had broken down in tears after his wife Meghan Markle suffered a miscarriage earlier this year.
In a heartbreaking essay penned for The New York Times, the Duchess of Sussex confirmed that the devastating loss of their second child led to Harry losing control of his emotions.
“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,” she wrote.
“Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal,” she went on to say.
“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,” she went on to say.
“Yet despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning,” she added.
