"They may target women, but the consequences impact all of us. My husband and I talked about that a lot over the past few days. He's a feminist too."

Gloria then added: "Yes – I can testify to that since I met him before I met you. He was at a big meeting I attended and he was advocating for people's rights."

Meghan continued: "And his reaction last week was guttural, like mine. I know that for so many women right now, there is a sentiment of despair. But again, we have to band together and not wallow. We have to do the work."

Meghan – who shares Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, with Harry - also spoke about the importance of normalising conversations about abortions and women's health. "I think about how fortunate I felt to be able to have both of my children," she shared. "I know what it feels like to have a connection to what is growing inside of your body.

Meghan also spoke about her pregnancies

"What happens with our bodies is so deeply personal, which can also lead to silence and stigma, even though so many of us deal with personal health crises. I know what miscarrying feels like, which I've talked about publicly.

"The more that we normalise conversation about the things that affect our lives and bodies, the more people are going to understand how necessary it is to have protections in place."
