Addressing the audience, Meghan spoke of the "emotional impact" the stories she'd heard from different families had on her, calling it "devastating".
She began by saying: "Thank you for being here with us. A year ago we met some of the families, not all of them. At that time it was impossible to not be in tears as I'm sure some of you have been today hearing those stories.
