Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid was left fighting back tears on Wednesday's show as she talked about Meghan Markle 's tragic miscarriage.
The former Suits actress penned an article for New York Times in which she candidly spoke of knowing she was having a miscarriage, writing: "As I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second".
Meghan didn't say how many months along she was but added the heartbreaking incident took place in July this year.
Looking visibly upset as she co-hosted GMB alongside Piers Morgan, mum-of-two Susanna said: "One of the things, I mean, enormous sympathies for Meghan and for the couple and for the family because that is a tragic loss and incredibly hard thing to deal with.
“One of the things it will do is it will offer some comfort to other people who have been in that situation.
"When somebody so high profile speaks out on something that is very difficult to talk about and that will be some measure of support for anybody else who has suffered this tragedy."
Susanna added: "For a lot of women it is misunderstood, the pain of losing a baby through miscarriage, so they will be very grateful for her opennesss and honesty.
"It’s quite a remarkable piece today in the New York Times and as I say it is written directly by Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, very open and honest about a very difficult experience."
In the honest piece, Meghan told of seeing Harry's heart break as she lay in hospital.
The Duchess of Sussex penned: "I dropped to the floor with him [Archie] in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right.

"I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.
"Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand.
"I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears.
"Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal."
