Meghan revealed she suffered from a miscarriage in July in a deeply personal essay she wrote for a US newspaper. The Duchess of Sussex, according to one royal expert, opened up on this tragic event to help break the taboo surrounding the loss of a baby and make people who have experienced it feel less alone.

Royal author Katie Nicholl added creating a community and helping others through their international profiles and platforms is Meghan and Harry's main goal with their yet-to-be-launched foundation, Archewell.

Commenting on Meghan's article published in the New York Times, the expert told BBC Radio 5 Live: "I was incredibly moved by it, my first reaction was 'how brave of her to do this', for a woman who is in the spotlight and in the headlines, so often not particularly nice headlines.

"They had a busy summer, it really struck me that this miscarriage happened in July when they just weren't out of the papers, there was the launch of Finding Freedom...you just couldn't get away from the Harry and Meghan narrative.

"Now we know that they were going through this complete personal heartache, and I think she was very very brave to write about it.

"She has done it to link with Thanksgiving, but I think she has done it to link it with her new raison d'être now, which is mental health, looking after each other...I am continually told that when Archewell launches community is going to be so much at the heart of this.

"They want to use their profile to help other people - and I'm told that if she feels this can help other people going through a similar experience, then that's why she wrote it, to break down this stigma and to say you know what? It's okay to talk about this."

Meghan and Prince Harry started speaking about their new foundation in late March, when they bowed out of their old Instagram account Sussex Royal.
