  • How should adult social care be funded

October 15 is Infant Loss Remembrance Day, sometimes called Baby Loss Day or Infant Loss Day, and it is a day of remembrance for miscarriages, stillborn babies, sudden infant death syndrome victims and other causes of child loss.

Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle shocked and delighted thousands by announcing they were expecting a baby due in Spring 2019.

Social media users quickly chimed in to criticize the Duke and Duchess for making their announcement today, when women worldwide are mourning pregnancy and infant loss.

But hundreds were upset and criticised their timing online, saying the news couldn't have come on a worse day.

The week is spearheaded by the Miscarriage Association, which works with more than 60 charities to raise awareness amongst the public, healthcare professionals and parliamentarians of the key issues affecting those who have lost a baby.

While no one can control when they get pregnant or begin to show, it's worth noting that the royal family waited until after Princess Eugenie's wedding to make this announcement, but didn't appear to have considered the context otherwise.

Another replied: "Absolutely. Prince Harry and #Meghan announce excitement at #pregnancy on Baby Loss and bereavement day #MeghanMarklepregnant". Of all the days to release the news, very insensitive. Announcing tomorrow wouldn't have hurt'.

Someone else said: "Really thoughtful of Harry and Meghan to announce their pregnancy on baby loss awareness day".

Leon said: 'So Harry and Meghan announce the pregnancy on the last day of Baby Loss Awareness Week, ops think that could have waited'.

Ruth Bender Atik, national director of the Miscarriage Association, said: 'I imagine they didn't know. I think it's as simple as that. I can understand how people feel.

Kensington Palace declined to comment.
