The pain and loss from Miscarriage is very serious Shame on Meghan markle for using the miscarriage, for using her father, for using a lawsuit (which she got caught lying in court documents) as a way to garner national sympathy as public opinion of her falls to an all time low. Sorry for your loss but keep it to yourself one who cries for privacy

No one cares and no worries wants to know adzo72 To much pressure Duchess Meghan had to endure all along from this brutal Monarchy, who even was complicit with the ugly lying British press to try to break M.Even the strongest woman on earth, couldn't have dealt with it, w/out any mental or physical consequences. Shame on U RF

The replies on this are awful, bravo to her for talking about miscarriage. A painful and heavily taboo subject for women today. Boring fake person 😢 I'm so sorry for her loss. sannetje_26 I tried, I really tried. You can't read this and not cry. I feel for them. I hope that they are okay.😭🤧 sannetje_26 😭😭😭❤️

SussexPrincess I am so sad for Meghan Markle. Three years of hatred in the UK leaves a mark on your body. God's blessing on your couple. Courage Harry and Meghan I’m sorry for any woman who has to go though a miscarriage. Though I would think that Meghan Markle would want to keep this matter private since it’s what she said she wanted when she left Royal duties. I didn’t expect a nytimes article about it all and then some.

Narcissistic young woman sharing intimate details to garner media attention and sympathy. I Never knew this ... so sad ... That's so sad! She said in the hospital her husband was holding her hand....yet the rest of us aren’t allowed to have family with us in the hospital or nursing homes bc of covid! More elite bull shit where the rules don’t apply to them!

Who gives a hoot Blessings, Duke and Duchess of Sussex 🌹 Her name is not Markle anymore! Stop calling her that and start respecting her marriage. SussexPrincess Sorry about this and all the hateful responses That can happen to any woman . Sorry that happen to her. I’m so sorry and I had the very same experience twice but then was blessed with the sweetest most lovable son. He is my rainbow 🌈 baby who without the loses I would have never met. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

God bless her and her family! No one wants to talk about the pain of losing a child. She’s helping so many women just by being honest and transparent. ❤️😢 Then just make another one and let's move on SussexPrincess So very sad. I’m glad she has the strength to speak out , miscarriage and still births are not talked about enough . Healing thoughts sent to Meghan and Harry .

God knows what's best for us, trust in His will for you. Hope you and your family are thriving in love. Glad you escaped those ' so-called royals' Be safe, love to you. I have a lot of sympathy and empathy with anyone experiencing a miscarriage. I myself had one at 26 weeks. But Meghan’s dramatic wording makes me wonder if it’s not just another way of her seeking attention.

It’s horrendous 😞😞 :( that sucks I dislike her greatly but this is so horrible and no one should have to go through this. Praying for the HRH The Duchess of Sussex This is so sad Sorry, but I thought Ms Markle wanted a private life out if the spotlight? She's not walking her talk I also held my son while I was having my last miscarriage, I feel so sorry for her 🖤

This is too private for printing, very personal. 🙏❤️ They said they weren't going to have a second child because of the climate? Sorry🙏
