Bereaved parents have hit out at the unfortunate timing of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s pregnancy announcement.
The royal couple put out a statement last night to say they will be expecting a baby in the spring.
But upset social media users criticised the pair, saying the news ‘could not have come on a worse day’.
MP Henry Smith, who lost his son in 2004, also waded into the debate, telling his Twitter followers it was ‘regrettable’ Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their announcement on infant loss remembrance day.
October 15 is International Pregnancy And Infant Loss Remembrance Day while today also marks the end of Baby Loss Awareness Week, held every October 9 to 15 to mark the lives of babies lost in pregnancy or soon after birth.
