Meghan Markle can add a new achievement to her CV: the author of children’s books.
Random House Children’s Books announced on Tuesday that the Duchess of Sussex will be releasing her first book, titled ‘The Bench’, on June 8.
“The Bench started out as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born,” Meghan said in a statement shared with HuffPost.
“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,” she said, referring to the illustrator of the book. “This portrayal was especially 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.
