Besides this year’s Thanksgiving celebration, Archie also got to celebrate his first Halloween last month by going trick-or-treating. On Wednesday, Meghan shocked her fans when she announced that she’d suffered a miscarriage this year.
The former actress wrote a personal essay for the “New York Times” sharing how she’d suffered the loss in July 2020. She confessed in the piece that losing a child came with an “almost unbearable grief.”
The royal noted how speaking about miscarriages was still taboo. She also candidly shared how she and her husband had shed tears in a hospital room as they tried to comfort one another.
