PEACEHAVEN UNITED KINGDOM- OCTOBER 03 Meghan Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry Duke of Sussex make an official visit to the Joff Youth Centre in Peacehaven Sussex

But some weren't so happy with Harry and Meghan's timing of the announcement, which fell on Infant Loss Remembrance Day.

Angela Still, administrator of the Women's Center, said building a support network for families who have suffered from pregnancy or infant loss is, in addition to holding a day of remembrance, an important part of the healing process.

The week is spearheaded by the Miscarriage Association, which works with more than 60 charities to raise awareness of the trauma of losing a baby.

In response to the news, one person wrote: 'A bit insensitive if you ask me.

The day of recognition follows on from the introduction in 2015 of early loss recognition certificates by the then Attorney-General, the late Vanessa Goodwin.

Anthea Lanesborough replied: 'Absolutely.

"And I thought it was bad enough that they couldn't wait more than three days to knock Eugenie back into place".

Vidant Medical Center's Children's Hospital Light Tower changed from blue to white on Monday night, joining people around the world honoring those who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss. Announcing tomorrow wouldn't have hurt'.

Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle Sr., is already praising his daughter's parenting skills following the announcement that she is expecting her first child with Prince Harry.

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 is the national director of the Miscarriage Association in the United Kingdom and she shared her thoughts on the royal baby announcement saying that she believed the couple simply weren't aware of the significance of the date. I think it's as simple as that. Many of them will also remember the joy they felt when they were pregnant.

The occasion also was a chance for people with similar experiences to come together and share their stories with others who understand the pain they feel.

She said: "I expect they didn't know it was Infant Loss Remembrance Day".
