Spencer's sentiments to Harry and Meghan come shortly after the Duchess revealed that she suffered a miscarriage in July after moving into their Santa Barbara home. The child would have been her and Harry's second child together.

Meghan explained that losing a child is an "almost unbearable grief" experienced by many women who are often too broken or ashamed to talk about it.

Meghan hopes that people will learn to check up on their loved ones more and encourages everyone not to be afraid to ask if they are okay.
