Meghan Markle tells in an article she signed that she lost her second child last July to a miscarriage
Meghan Markle lost her second child to a miscarriage. She told this in an article she wrote for the New York Times and published on November 25, 2020.
Meghan tells of that terrible day in July where everything seemed normal but while changing Archie's diaper, she suddenly felt sick, felt "a sharp cramp" and lost her second child. The Duchess was in her home in Los Angeles, she was hospitalized, Harry has always remained close to her, heartbroken by the incident.
Meghan writes: “After changing her diaper, I felt a strong cramp. I dropped to the ground with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us calm, a cheerful melody in stark contrast to the feeling that something was wrong. " And he continued: "I knew, while I was holding my firstborn, that I was losing the second".
Markle continues in the story of those painful hours: "Hours later, I was lying on a hospital bed, holding my husband's hand. I felt the wetness of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet by both of our tears ". Now the emotion of the Prince becomes clearer when he spoke on video call with a father who had four children. Her desire to have another child was clear, but evidently there was also the drama of the loss of her second child.
Meghan continues: "I was staring at the white walls, my eyes were glassy and I was trying to imagine how we would get out of it". “I remembered last year's trip to South Africa. I was exhausted, I was nursing Archie and I was trying to keep a strong and smiling appearance in public ”. She remembers: “A reporter asked me if I was okay and I answered honestly without foreseeing that my words would resonate like that among mothers and those who had suffered in silence. My answer seemed to have given several people the courage to tell their truth ”.
It was during that state tour that Meg and Harry confessed their intolerance of court obligations and their weariness with media pressure. Meghan describes her feelings and how she reacted to that reporter's simple question to which she replied: “Thank you for asking. Not many people care if I'm okay ”.
Harry's wife then reflects on the many private tragedies that this 2020, more than other years, has brought due to Covid. And then she lists the victims of American police violence, from Breonna Taylor to George Floyd, a subject on which she had already expressed herself, indirectly criticizing the presidency of Donald Trump. “Peaceful protests turn violent. Health quickly turns into disease. In places where once there was community, now there is division ".
And he concludes with a consideration that almost has the tone of politics: "We no longer agree on what is true […] We disagree on the fact that science is real. We disagree as to whether an election has been won or lost. We disagree on the value of the compromise ”.
