KEY POINTS

  • Doria Ragland guides Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after the duchess' miscarriage
  • Prince Charles regularly checks in on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as well
  • Prince Harry told the royals about the incident and they kept it to themselves  

Meghan Markle's mom Doria Ragland is making sure that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have someone to look after them after Markle's miscarriage.

In an op-ed for The New York Times, Markle shared her heartbreaking experience after losing her second baby. Fortunately, her mom is there to help her and Prince Harry heal, according to an insider.

"She’s guiding Harry and Meghan — helping them heal and come to terms with their painful loss," a source told Us Weekly. "But for anyone who has suffered from a miscarriage, it’s something you never fully get over."

The royal family was reportedly "deeply saddened" by the royal couple's loss in July. Prince Harry's father, the Prince of Wales, often checks in on the couple and asks how they are doing after Markle’s miscarriage.

"Harry told them early on when it happened, but as it’s such a private matter, they kept it to themselves," the insider added.

"[Prince] Charles, in particular, has been supporting the couple through their grief and regularly checks in on them.”

In her op-ed, Markle recalled the time she realized that she was losing her second baby. It was a painful and heartbreaking moment for her and Prince Harry who were expecting to welcome their second child.

Markle recalled the "sharp cramp" she felt while changing her son Archie's diaper. It was so painful that she found herself on the floor with her son.

"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," Markle wrote.

After Markle shared her miscarriage story, some of her critics slammed her for doing so. Many of them accused her of writing about it for money, sympathy and attention.

However, many also defended Markle because they believe that she only shared it to help others who are going through the same pain and loss. Also, some of her fans found out that the duchess wasn’t paid for writing the op-ed.
