Usually when someone has a miscarriage people express their sympathy and that's the end of it. Rarely does the woman (royal or non-royal) who miscarried talk about it at length or go into the details of it. If they do, people are generally uncomfortable about it.

This is something that celebs don't even talk about and they pretty much talk about everything. It amazes me how many women I've known who have had miscarriages (a lot more than you would think).

I imagine it would be quite a story if a royal came on tv and spoke about having a miscarriage. Or talked about how it affected her emotionally. It would probably be a first.

Since many royals don't announce their pregnancy until they are about 3 months pregnant or further along, it quite possible that many of them had miscarriages but it was never made public.

It makes wonder if any of the princesses today had a miscarriage.

Maybe we'll know after some more years.

And who can forget a couple of pictures taken in Thailand that came to light in January 2006? P. Caroline was already 49, but her belly was soooo proeminent that EVERYBODY gave a late pregnancy for sure!!!
I never heard rumors about Princess Caroline having miscarriges. Princess Stephanie was photographed with a very very prominent belly when she was with the circus owner. Then she was suddenly slim.

Princess Grace's miscarriage

I saw this photo of a pregnant Grace when Caroline and Albert were little tots.

She had a miscarrige when she went to Canada in July 1967.
The Royal Digest: Grace Kelly: Visiting Canada with Prince Rainier and Children July 1967

I think that this picture is of Grace and Stephanie and Grace looks pregnant.

Donald was being interviewed by Diane Sawyer. He wrote the book “High Society, the life of Grace Kelly” I saw this on youtube. Donald said: “For all her warmth and joy, she had an undercurrent of melancholy. What people were not aware of was, and I was given this this information and I was pleased to have it because it enables us to understand her more fully. She had a number of miscarriages in the early 60’s and that pitched her into a terrible series of depressions which took some time to emerge from. "

I don't think the reason women (royal or not) don't talk about their miscarriages is because there is a stigma.
I think it's a very painful thing and having to explain over and over again what happened (or see it in the tabloids) is even more painful.
I have never had a miscarriage and have three healthy children, but actually feel that I am the unusual one, among the women I know that I am close enough that they would tell me. I don't know many mothers of families who have never had a miscarriage. And a miscarriage can definitely be as painful as a stillbirth from what people have shared with me even if the woman has a lot of children. Each one is unique and they keep thinking about what would have been.

Seems like it a more common occurance than what people think. I was surprised at how many women I know (family members,friends, other women) have had miscarriages. I can think of almost 10 women just off the top of my head that I know who have gone through this.

I would imagine if the average person knows several women who have had a miscarriage, no doubt most royals probably know of a family member or another royal whose had one as well. I would be very surprised if any of them ever discussed it at great length among themselves.

I remember being at a job where this woman talked at length about her 2 miscarriages going into great detail about the whole thing. I remember being very uncomfortable listening to her talking about it at length as did several other women who were in the room. No one knew what to say to her which is why this topic of conversation is avoided.
