The news of an expected child is always welcomed with smiles and congratulations. Well, almost always.

Meghan Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, have announced that they are expecting a baby in Spring 2019. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared the news with the Queen and other members of the Royal Family at Princess Eugenie's wedding on Friday.

Royal sources said her Majesty was ‘delighted’ with the announcement, as was Prince Phillip and Harry's dad, Prince Charles.

The happy couple was congratulated with love and happiness as they expected, but they forgot one detail: It's baby loss week.

After the couple revealed the news to the public through the Kensington Palace social media on Friday, there has been a lot  of controversy concerning the ‘happy news.’

Hundreds of upset mothers have flooded Twitter to criticise the timing of the announcement, saying it could not have come at a worse time and, really Meghan, it literally could not.

Grieving couples have also taken to social media to express their disappointment and anger at Meghan for being insensitive towards this very dewlicate situation and, well, for lack of other words ‘ rubbing her happiness in their faces.'

The loss of a baby is a very tragic occurance, which has affected the lives of many families worldwide. It deserves more attention and understanding so that other families may not have to go through the same ordeal.

Meghan could really not have picked a worse time  to announce her baby’s expected arrival.

However, amidst the saga, Ruth Bender Atik, National Director of Miscarriage Association comes to the couple's rescue saying;

 “ I imagine they didn't know. I think it's as simple as that.”

Speculations are also flying concerning Meghan announcing her pregnancy to the family on what was supposed to be Princess Eugenie’s special night. Kensington Palace has declined to drop any comments on the ongoing saga.

We do not know for sure what Meghan’s intentions were, but she could not have intended to hurt the millions of families affected with this sensitive issue.
