Megan first talked about the miscarriage in November in a candid essay published by The New York Times. The prince’s wife described the day the tragedy occurred: “It was an ordinary morning when I went to Archie’s to change his diaper. Suddenly I felt a convulsion. A second later I fell to the floor with my son in my arms. I began humming a lullaby to calm him and myself. However, I felt that something was wrong. I understood that the moment I hugged my first child, I was losing the second, ”writes Megan. Soon she was taken to the hospital, Harry was with her.
“I kissed his hands, wet with our tears. I looked at the cold white walls and tried to imagine how we can survive this … The loss of a child is an unbearable grief that many experience, but which is so rarely talked about. I was sitting in a hospital bed, watching my husband trying to piece me together, although from grief he crumbles himself … ”- Megan shared in her essay.
