Meghan Markle, duchess of Sussex, reveals miscarriage of second child

"It's very different for us because we're carrying the child, but for guys I guess it's kind of that helpless feeling, which must be incredibly high and terrible for them", she said.

Meghan Markle is candidly sharing her story of suffering a miscarriage in July while pregnant with her and husband Prince Harry's second child.

"To go through something as heart-breaking and soul-destroying as a miscarriage, it can only help if others are strong enough to speak out".

Strangford Alliance MLA Kellie Armstrong (50) previously shared her heartbreak over her 13 failed pregnancies.

"I know, as I hold my firstborn child, say I dey lose my second", Meghan tok for one piece wey she do wit New York Times.

And she ends by saying, "We will be".

"I applaud the Duchess of Sussex for what she has done because it brings the subject to the fore", she said.

She had the same experience with Harry after her miscarriage.

The honest and emotional response went viral, as many took to social media to show support for the duchess, while others raised concerns for her emotional well-being. Years ago my husband and I suffered a very public miscarriage.

Mrs Sheppard said she was "thrown into depression" following her second miscarriage, being prescribed antidepressants and referred for eight weeks of pregnancy loss counselling.

She continued: "Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband's hand".

"I was exhausted. I was breastfeeding our infant son, and I was trying to keep a fearless face in the very public eye", she wrote.

The 39-year-old duchess said she had decided finally to disclose these intimate details as a way of helping her own healing process - and potentially help others who have quietly suffered similar devastation in private.

It's also likely that Meghan will be cooking for the family as she did previous year, with royal correspondent Katie Nicholl telling OK! last August that the mother is a "talented chef" who loves to provide meals for her family.

It's been reported that Buckingham Palace has known about the miscarriage since this summer but a spokesperson for the Queen has declined to comment, calling it a "deeply personal matter". "I can't imagine the agony for any couple losing a child in this way and it's so very, very sad" he lamented on the United Kingdom show Lorraine.

"I am sure you will want to join us, all of us here, in wishing all our love to Meghan", Lorraine Kelly, host of the program, said.

Harry and Markle shocked the British establishment when they announced they were retiring from royal life.

In the powerful piece, she expressed her decision to come out with her story was motivated by the fact that miscarriages were very common, yet no one seemed to talk about them, leaving the people who experienced the loss all alone in their grief.
