Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, to publish children’s book based on Prince Harry’s relationship with their son Archie – fr


She has been an actress, blogger, human rights activist, narrator, producer and investor.

But now the Duchess of Sussex has added another string to her bow, that of children’s author.

Meghan, 39, has written a book about the ‘special bond’ between father and son, inspired by the relationship between her husband, the Duke of Sussex, and their son, Archie, who turns two on Thursday.

The story, called The Bench, evolved from a poem she wrote for Prince Harry on her first Father’s Day and is her first foray into children’s literature.

Illustrated by California artist Christian Robinson, the 40-page book, aimed at children ages three to seven, will be released on June 8.

The Duchess said: “The bench started out as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born.

“This poem has become this story. Christian has layered beautiful and ethereal watercolor illustrations that capture the warmth, joy and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons of all walks of life; this portrayal was particularly important to me, and Christian and I worked closely to portray this special bond through an inclusive lens.

“I hope The Bench resonates with all families, whatever their makeup, as much as mine.”
