And that both her and Prince Harry are heartbroken over their tragic loss.

She says she felt sharp stomach pain this July, only to go on and lose her unborn child.

Meghan writes: “I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.

“Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand. I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears.”
