Meghan Markle, the former TV actress-turned Duchess of Sussex, continues to prove herself to be one of the most fascinating among the celebrities of her era.Once again Markle has proved her unique identity with her open hearted revelation about her miscarriage in July, giving a personal account of the traumatic experience in hope of helping others.While some applauded her strength and courage, others accused her of using a tragedy for her own gains.
The former “Suits” star, 39, said she was sharing her story to help break the silence around an all-too-common tragedy.In the piece called “The Losses We Share,” she said, “I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.” Meghan did not reveal how far along she was in her pregnancy, but most miscarriages happen in the first trimester of pregnancy. Meghan was hospitalized and recalls watching her husband Harry’s “heart break as he tried to hold the shattered pieces of mine.”
“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” she wrote. “In being invited to share our pain, together we take the first steps toward healing”-said the actress. Her statement was poignant and filled with overwhelming despair at her great loss.
Miscarriage Trauma:Megan Markle made a moving comment on her great loss!
Over 20 out of 100 women are exposed to the grieving agony and trauma of miscarriage on an yearly basis. The problem lies when they refuse to open up themselves before the society since it is often associated with a stigma of ‘being barren’ or ‘infertile’. This very taboo linked to miscarriage was vandalized with the recent open debate by Markle on the same topic. Reactions to Meghan’s essay, however, are deeply divided, as she probably knew they would be given the past year’s events and the person she has become in the public imagination.
Though the piece begins with a very personal revelation, she expands to discussing the challenges of 2020 as a whole, including the pandemic and the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. “This year has brought so many of us to our breaking points,” she writes. “So, this Thanksgiving, ‘let us commit to asking others, ‘Are you OK?’”
Markle, an American actress and star of TV legal drama “Suits,” married Harry, a grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, in a lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle in May 2018. Their son was born the following year.
Early this year, the couple announced they were quitting royal duties and moving to North America, citing what they said were the unbearable intrusions and racist attitudes of the British media. They recently bought a house in Santa Barbara.
