The news comes three months after Meghan penned her poignant essay in the New York Times.

Here she detailed her heartbreak of suffering a miscarriage earlier that year.

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

She continued: “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. Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal.”

Meanwhile, Harry has also paid tribute to his late mother on their new Archewell website.
