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.
I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.
She and Prince Harry then went quickly to hospital where she described seeing Harry’s heartbreaking as he ‘held the shattered pieces of mine’.
That Meghan Markle could write about her miscarriage knowing that it would add fuel to the fire of the demons who want her demise, makes her even more of a queen.— Monisha Rajesh (@monisha_rajesh) November 25, 2020
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.
Stay strong Meghan, and all those who have to go through such tragedy.
