The Duchess of Sussex said fans of The Bench will discover ‘sweet little moments’ dedicated to her family if they read between the lines.
She published the book on June 8 – just days after the birth of her new daughter Lilibet – describing it as a “love story” about her husband and son.
The 40-page book at £ 12.99 ($ 18.42) is illustrated with photos of a family including one of Meghan cradling a newborn baby in a possible nod to their newborn daughter Lili.
In an interview with NPR about The Bench, she said, “Just all those little Easter eggs or nuggets that are tucked away in the book – I mean, there are a lot of them.
“If people start digging, I think you can find sweet little moments that we hid in there, of my favorite flower, even my husband’s mother’s favorite flower, forget-me-not – we wanted to make sure those – these were included in there.
“There are a lot of special details and love in this book. “
Meghan’s touching nod to her late mother-in-law appears on a page featuring blue forget-me-nots illustrated by Christian Robinson.
In addition to Princess Diana’s favorite flower, the Duchess has included photos of her own flower of choice – peonies.
Even a group of chickens rescued from the family chicken coop at their Montecito mansion make an appearance in the book, with Meghan saying, ‘I needed my daughters there’.
With unmistakable red hair, an illustration of Harry is featured in the book wearing what appears to be a military uniform and playing with a little boy likely to be Archie.
