Markle said the incident happened while she went about her usual daily routine. After changing her son Archie's diaper, she felt a sharp cramp and dropped to the floor with her son in her arms. 

She hummed a lullaby to keep them both calm but knew within herself that something was not right. Many people now hope that Meghan and Harry would be able to go through this phase and come out stronger.
