Prince Harry claims Meghan Markle’s dad’s leaked letter caused her miscarriage
Prince Harry has claimed the leaking of his wife Meghan Markle’s handwritten letter to her estranged father “caused” her devastating miscarriage.
The Duchess of Sussex wrote to Thomas Markle on the Queen’s advice after he posed for set up paparazzi photos and made negative comments about the royal family in the press.
However the letter was leaked and large chunks printed in the Daily Mail. Meghan successfully sued publishers of the Daily Mail, Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL), in 2021 after the Mail On Sunday published parts of the “personal and private” letter she had sent to Thomas Markle.
Now in their Netflix docuseries, Harry and Meghan have opened about their tragic loss – which occurred on the morning they moved into their current home.
Discussing her loss in July 2020, Meghan told the Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan: “I was pregnant, I really wasn’t sleeping and the first morning that we woke up in our new home is when I miscarried.”
He told Netflix: “I believe my wife suffered a miscarriage because of what the Mail did. I watched the whole thing. Now do we actually know the miscarriage was caused by that? Of course, we don’t.
“But bearing in mind the stress that caused, the lack of sleep and the timing of the pregnancy, how many weeks in she was, I can say from what I saw, the miscarriage was created by what they were trying to do to her.”
