The Duchess of Sussex is opening up about a miscarriage she suffered back in the summer.
The article is titled ‘The Losses We Share,’ and it tells the powerful and painful story.
In the piece, Meghan Markle describes caring for her 1-year-old son Archie one morning in July when she felt a sharp cramp.
“I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.”
It’s not clear how far along she was in the pregnancy.
The Duchess invites others who have experienced what she calls “the staggering commonality of the pain” to share their stories. She commends other women who’ve helped break down the taboo around the topic.
She also calls on Americans to check in with each other as the country prepares to celebrate Thanksgiving amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and deep political divisions.
