When it was revealed that the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were angry, to say the least.

The former actress, 40, shared that "his reaction last week was guttural, like mine."

"Men need to be vocal in this moment and beyond because these are decisions that affect relationships, families and communities at large," she added. "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."

During this tough time, the TV star, who shares son Archie and daughter Lilibet Diana with the prince, wants to help out whenever possible.

"I know that for many women right now, there is a sentiment of despair," she noted. "But again, we have to band together and not wallow. We have to do the work. This moment requires unity – really listening to people, understanding the Constitution was written at a time when women were second-class citizens. We’re not. Certain things need to change."

"I think it’s equally about honoring the people who’ve been doing the work long before us, like [feminist icon] Gloria [Steinem]," she continued. "I’m grateful that I’m holding a baton right there next to her and that we will continue to be doing this work together."

The brunette beauty, who revealed she had a miscarriage before welcoming Lilibet, got candid about what it was like to lose a child, but since she has plenty of resources, she didn't have to suffer, like some now will due to the new laws in place.

"I think about how fortunate I felt to be able to have both of my children," she said. "I know what it feels like to have a connection to what is growing inside of your body. 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 normalize the 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."
