Called The Bench, Meghan’s first post for young people is about the special bond between a father and son – seen through a mother’s eyes.
Random House Children’s Books has announced that the illustrated book will go on sale June 8 and features works by award-winning artist Christian Robinson, the Duchess telling the audiobook.
Meghan, who is expecting a daughter this summer, 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 from all walks of life; this representation was particularly important to me and Christian and I worked closely to illustrate this special bond through inclusive lens.
“My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, regardless of makeup, as much as it does with mine. “
