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.

Meghan's induction into the royal family wasn't an easy one and, ever since her marriage to Harry in May 2018, she has been relentlessly attacked by the British press and royalists alike.

This lead to the couple making the bold decision to step down from royal duties earlier this year.

In a joint statement, the couple said that they wanted "a normal upbringing for their child" and they feel that spending their time between the U.K. and America would be much more appropriate for their family environment.

Even though the family is now spending a lot of their time in Los Angeles...

Meghan has still been receiving a lot of heat from the British press for "breaking up the royal family."

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

Leading many to label the hate as a matter of racism.

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.

Obviously, this revealation has come as a shock to many...

Because, since July, Meghan and Harry have been spotted out in public on a number of different occasions, mainly helping with charities and organizations close their hearts.

Her article touched the hearts of many...

In particular, moms and other women who had experienced miscarriages themselves, thanked Meghan for raising awareness around the otherwise "taboo" topic.

Here's what she said on the moment she miscarried:

"I dropped to the floor with him [Archie] 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," Meghan wrote.

She continued:

"I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second. 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."

She went on to reveal that Harry's heart was breaking, too.

"Sitting in a hospital bed, watching my husband’s heart break as he tried to hold the shattered pieces of mine, I realized that the only way to begin to heal is to first ask, 'Are you OK?'"

"Are we? This year has brought so many of us to our breaking points," she continued.

"Loss and pain have plagued every one of us in 2020, in moments both fraught and debilitating. We’ve heard all the stories: A woman starts her day, as normal as any other, but then receives a call that she’s lost her elderly mother to Covid-19. A man wakes feeling fine, maybe a little sluggish, but nothing out of the ordinary. He tests positive for the coronavirus and within weeks, he — like hundreds of thousands of others — has died."

"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."

The rally of support that formed as a result of her article has been truly heartwarming...

And likely a great source of comfort to Meghan, too.

A source close to Meghan recently said that she was "overwhelmed" by it.

Speaking to Us Weekly, the source revealed: "Meghan has no regrets whatsoever about sharing her grief."

They continued:

"[She] is overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support she’s received from the public and other women who’ve experienced the pain of losing a child."

Our thoughts go out to Meghan and Harry during this difficult time.
