Last week, Meghan Markle revealed in a candid article that she had recently suffered a miscarriage.
Ever since her shock announcement, millions of people have been reacting to her revelation with love and support, something that, according to reports, has ultimately left the duchess "overwhelmed."
Here's the full story...
The heartbreaking news was revealed last week.Meghan Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, suffered a devastating loss earlier this year.
Now, this couldn't have come at a worse time for the pair.

This lead to the couple making the bold decision to step down from royal duties earlier this year.
Even though the family is now spending a lot of their time in Los Angeles...

It seems that Meghan literally can't do anything right...

Meghan is the first-ever person of color to join the Royal Family...And no other royal has ever received the volume of hate in which Meghan has - not even Prince Andrew, who was accused of being involved in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal recently.
Meghan and Harry remained tight-lipped with regards to the effect this online abuse has had upon them...But, last month, they did give a rare insight into their own personal struggles.
Appearing on the Teenager Therapy podcast, Meghan candidly spoke about the overwhelming level of online abuse she experienced."I'm told that in 2019 I was the most trolled person in the entire world - male or female. Now, 8 months of that I wasn't even visible. I was on maternity leave or with a baby but was able to just be manufactured and churned out."
She admitted that this fact was incredibly "damaging" to her mental health:"That's so big you can't even think of what that feels like, because I don't care if you're fifteen or you're twenty-five, if people are saying things about you that aren't true, what that does to your mental and emotional health is so damaging."
Meghan then went on to describe the whole situation as "almost unsurvivable."However, she then went on to point out that everyone in the world experiences bullying to some degree, and from that shared experience, change can happen. "We all know what it feels like to have our feelings hurt. We all know what it feels like to be isolated or othered."
But Meghan's most recent announcement was perhaps the most heartbreaking of them all.Writing for The New York Times, the Duchess of Sussex penned a candid article that recalled a miscarriage she suffered in July.
