Meghan Markle’s ‘sadness’ and ‘struggle’ over baby heartbreak at the end of an era



Meghan Markle is reportedly grappling with feelings of “sadness” as she navigates the emotional challenges of watching her two young children grow up. This sentiment comes on the heels of a particularly poignant Mother’s Day last month, which Meghan spent apart from her children.

The Duchess of Sussex, known for her devotion to her family, shares two children with her husband, Prince Harry: Prince Archie, born in 2019, and Princess Lilibet, born in 2021. Despite their close-knit family dynamic, Meghan found herself separated from her children during the recent Mother’s Day in the United States. The couple was on a visit to Nigeria at the time, and Meghan openly expressed her sorrow over the separation.

Reflecting on her feelings during the visit, Meghan remarked, “Today is Mother’s Day. So it feels appropriate that although of course we are missing our children, I’m missing my babies, it feels very appropriate to be in the motherland and amongst family.”

A source revealed to OK! Magazine that Meghan finds it particularly challenging to be away from her children, emphasizing her desire to be present for every moment of their rapidly changing lives. The source noted, “Meghan doesn’t like being away from her children as she doesn’t want to miss a thing with them growing up so fast. With Lili turning three, it’s really got Meghan and Harry thinking about their future and how quickly the children are growing up. Meghan especially feels that her babies are no longer babies and like most mums, it makes her slightly sad and wistful that the baby years have come to an end.”

Princess Lilibet’s third birthday on June 4 has been a significant milestone, contributing to Meghan’s emotional reflection on the passage of time. Parenting expert Amanda Jenner offered insight into these feelings, explaining, “For many parents, it really is a mix of emotions when you think your children are growing up so fast; it can leave parents feeling anxious about how fast time is going but it is completely natural. It’s perfectly normal that Meghan is feeling that sudden sadness and it’s important to find the positive. This can also be a time for parents to find themselves again as a person.”

As Meghan and Harry contemplate their family’s future, they are undoubtedly experiencing the universal parental struggle of balancing the joy of watching their children grow with the bittersweet realization that the early years are fleeting.
