Prince Harry, also known as the Duke of Sussex, is opening up about a deeply personal and painful experience in his new book, "Spare."

In the book, he writes about the day he and his wife, Meghan Markle, buried their second child, who was lost due to a miscarriage.

Harry and Meghan were married in May 2018 at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. They welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, in May 2019.

However, in July 2020, Meghan announced that she had suffered a miscarriage and that they had lost their second child.

In "Spare," Harry writes about the emotional and physical pain that both he and the Duchess of Sussex experienced during this time.

He describes how Meghan began to feel "abdominal pains" ahead of the miscarriage and how she fell to the floor after bleeding. He also writes about how they both wept after hearing the news and left the hospital feeling "hopeless."

The Prince also reveals how he and Meghan decided to bury their child in a "secret place" and how he dug a hole with his bare hands to set the "tiny package" into the soil below a tree.

He writes about the deep sadness and grief that he felt during this time and how it affected him and his relationship with Meghan.

Harry has been open about his struggles with mental health in the past, and in "Spare" he writes about how this experience has affected him and how he has been able to process his grief.

He also writes about the importance of talking about miscarriage and breaking the taboo surrounding it.

In addition to his personal life, Harry has been known for his charitable work and advocacy for various causes. He served in the British Army for 10 years, including two tours of duty in Afghanistan.

He has also been an advocate for mental health awareness, having co-founded the mental health charity, HeadFIT, and the Invictus Games, a sporting event for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women.

In 2019, Harry and Meghan stepped back as senior members of the royal family and moved to North America, where they have been focusing on their personal and philanthropic work.

Harry's "Spare" book is not only a reflection of his personal life but also a way of shedding light on the topic of miscarriage, which is often not talked about openly.

This is a courageous step taken by the Duke to break the taboo and give hope to others who have gone through or are going through the same experience.

Through the book, Harry is providing a voice to the pain and loss that so many couples experience, and encouraging others to speak up and get support.
