Meghan Markle writes for the New York Times

Meghan Markle has penned an opinion piece for the New York Times entitled “The Losses We Share”.

The articles explains how she suffered a miscarriage in July whilst caring for Archie, her first child with Prince Harry of the United Kingdom.

Aiming to open up the subject and advocate on the issue for other people, Meghan states:

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. Yet despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning.

The article also covers the shared pain of those who have lost loved ones during the coronavirus pandemic and the difficulties of political polarization in the United States.
