Princess Diana’s brother, Charles, Earl Spencer recently reacted to the news that Meghan Markle suffered a miscarriage in July.
During his interview with ITV’s Lorraine, Charles said that his heart goes out to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
“I can’t imagine the agony for any couple losing a child this way. It’s so very, very sad. And of course, I totally agree with you, all thoughts with them today,” he said.
Meghan Markle reveals she suffered a miscarriage
“I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right. I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second. And 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,” she wrote.
Markle said that as she was looking at Prince Harry, she realized that the first thing that they need to do to heal is to ask if they’re OK.
“Are you OK?” is a statement that Markle also used during her interview months before she quit The Firm.
“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few. Despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning,” Meghan Markle wrote.
Charles, Earl Spencer’s thoughts on Princess Diana’s interview, ‘The Crown’
Meanwhile, Princess Diana’s younger brother also talked about other royal family-related issues during his recent interview.
He said that he’s appalled by what he has heard about Princess Diana’s 1995 interview with Martin Bashir for Panorama.
Charles, Earl Spencer also reminded viewers of The Crown that the series isn’t the gospel truth. As such, it’s important to remember that the stories on Prince Charles, Princess Diana, and Camilla Parker Bowles are works of fiction.
“I think it would help The Crown an enormous amount if at the beginning of each episode it stated that this isn’t true, but it’s based around some real events because then everyone would understand that this is a drama for drama’s sake,” he said.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s generation is still not part of the series.
