Meghan revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage over the summer in an article she wrote for the New York Times. In the article titled 'The Losses We Share', Meghan spoke about the deep pain and anguish of losing her second child after feeling a "sharp cramp" as she changed her firstborn Archie's nappy in July. She wrote about falling ill at home in Los Angeles and being in hospital while watching her husband Harry's "heartbreak as he tried to hold the shattered pieces of mine" as the two grieved for their baby. As the news of the miscarriage spread on social media, many users showed their sympathy for Meghan.

Some users are of the opinion that Meghan's sister-in-law Kate Middleton had received more sympathy and support when she had lost her pet dog as compared to Meghan's miscarriage. One such user had written, "I hope Meghan Markle gets the sympathy she deserves (and would get if she was Kate Middleton) and not the hate and racism she has received for everything else she has done."

Another user commented and said, "Kate Middleton really got more sympathy from the British public over losing her dog than Meghan Markle did over losing her baby. Gross behaviour yet again." "How is the british public comparing kate middleton losing her dog to meghan markle having a miscarriage??? & somehow they’re finding more sympathy for a dead dog. goodness, the racism is just too much," shared yet another. 



 



 



 

"The abuse and criticism she faces daily compared to the breadstick that is kate middleton is vile and there is no doubt in my mind that if the roles were reversed kate would be overwhelmed with support. Meghan deserves better, and so does every woman who publicly talks on this," wrote another user. Yet another user who echoed the same sentiments chimed in, "you know for a fact that if Kate Middleton announced she had a miscarriage she would be flooded with love. Somehow Meghan Markle is still receiving hate... for having a miscarriage… wtf is wrong with some people."



 



 

Meghan described the tragic moment she realized that "something was not right". "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," she shared. "I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second," she added. She spoke about how the miscarriage had taken place on a July morning which started off as an ordinary day. 

She said she had woken up, fed the dogs, cleaned up Archie's clothes, before "throwing my hair in a ponytail before getting my son from his crib". She then felt a sharp cramp and fell to the floor. "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," she revealed.
