Meghan of the Duchess of Sussex in Britain has revealed she had an abortion, an extraordinary personal revelation from a high profile British royal.
Prince Harry’s wife and former actress wrote about the experience in detail in an opinion piece published in The New York Times on Wednesday, saying it happened on the morning of July 1 while he was busy of the couple’s son, Archie.
“I knew, grabbing my firstborn, I was losing my second,” Meghan wrote.
“Losing a child means almost unbearable grief, which many have experienced, but few have spoken of.”
“In the agony of our loss, my husband and I learned that in a room of 100 women, 10-20 of them would suffer a miscarriage. Yet despite the general appearance of this pain, conversation is taboo with the unborn child. ) It’s a shame, and a cycle of lonely mourning.
The intimate details shared in the article are oddly in line with the general policies of the senior executives of the British Royal Family, who reveal almost nothing about their personal lives.
Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, has not spoken about her personal life in any media interview during her 68-year reign.
Meghan and Harry stepped down from royal duties and moved to the United States earlier this year. They are trying to carve out a new role for themselves outside of the constraints of life in Britain’s strictly codified imperial bubble.
