After her post on miscarriage last month, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, in a special message on CNN on Sunday, she paid tribute to this year’s “most inspiring moments and the people who made them happen.” She praised the “quiet heroes” of the coronavirus pandemic and “individuals (who) stood up and made sure the most basic needs of our communities were met” over the past year.

Thanking the heroes, Markle said, “They made sure those around them did not have to suffer in isolation.” Talking about the effects of the current pandemic, she reflected “Even in the darkest times, when we come together we have the power to remind someone else that there is hope and that we will be okay.” 

In a moving speech, the 39-year-old Markle, thanked key workers and volunteers and said hoping “we will be ok”.

In her message, she further praised those who fed children and “when kids’ lunch programs came to a halt, we saw our neighbours make sure that those children received the nutrition they need,” saying a warm meal is “as comforting as a much-needed hug”.

She added that “we as a community showed up” to deliver food needed by vulnerable people and “we also saw the power of the human spirit” and that “we have the power to remind someone else that there is hope”.

Last month, Markle opened about the time she had a miscarriage in July, causing her and Prince Harry “unbearable grief”. She had revealed about going through an emotionally traumatic experience. Last year, Markle and Prince Harry had their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor. Markle’s pregnancy was announced in October 2018.

Britain’s Prince Harry and American actress Markle got married in May 2018, and are presently based in Los Angeles. They moved to California after stepping back as senior royals in January.
