The sad news was shared by the Duchess of Sussex in July 2020 in a deeply personal article for the New York Times, writing: “I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.”

Meghan was praised for the ‘brave’ move she took in penning the essay, with many women who have gone through the same thing claiming it makes them feel ‘less alone’.

The news also comes on the back of Meghan's big court win earlier this month.

The Duchess released an emotional statement on February 12 after winning her High Court privacy claim against UK publisher Associated Newspapers Ltd.

A judge on Thursday agreed with Meghan Markle's legal team that it was "unlawful" for the newspaper to publish parts of a letter she wrote to her father, Thomas Markle Snr, after her wedding to Prince Harry.

Its the second happy baby news for the British family this year, after Princess Eugenie welcomed her first baby with husband Jack Brooksbank earlier in February.
