Princess Di’s brother offers miscarriage condolences to Prince Harry and Meghan

Princess Diana's brother, Charles Spencer, has sent well wishes to his nephew Prince Harry after Meghan Markle revealed her miscarriage.

Hours after the tragic news broke, Earl Spencer appeared on ITV's Lorraine and said he "can't imagine" the couple's agony.

Lorraine asked the Earl: "I am sure you will want to join us, all of us here, in wishing all our love to Meghan.

"And of course, to your nephew Harry because today we just found out the news she had a miscarriage. It is just terribly sad, isn't it?"

He replied: "I can't imagine the agony for any couple of losing a child in this way. It's so very, very sad.

"And of course, I totally agree with you, all thoughts with them today."

In the article, Meghan wrote a deeply emotional New York Times piece in which she said she realised she was miscarrying her second child one morning in July.

She wrote: "After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp.

"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."

The Duchess then described the pain both she and Prince Harry felt in the hospital as she wondered how the pair would begin to "heal from this."

In the aftermath of the loss, Meghan learnt how so many other people had gone through the same.

She said: "Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few.

"In the pain of our loss, my husband and I discovered that in a room of 100 women, 10 to 20 of them will have suffered from miscarriage.

"Yet despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning.

"Some have bravely shared their stories; they have opened the door, knowing that when one person speaks truth, it gives license for all of us to do the same.

"We have learned that when people ask how any of us are doing, and when they really listen to the answer, with an open heart and mind, the load of grief often becomes lighter — for all of us.

"In being invited to share our pain, together we take the first steps toward healing."
