The Duchess of Sussex is authoring a Children's Book titled The Bench, inspired by a poem she wrote for her husband, Prince Harry, and their son Archie.


Meghan, expecting her second child, debuts her first children's book on June 8, inspired by her own experience with her family, husband Prince Harry, and son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

The story talks about the loving bond between father and son but is viewed through a mother's eyes. At first, The Bench started as a poem she wrote to Harry on Father's Day. Then, the poem turned into a book's story.


The story is depicted through colorful illustrations that, by Markle's own words, "captures the warmth, the joy, and the comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons, from all walks of life."

The book will be published by publisher Random House, the kid division within The Penguin Random House. The EVP and publisher at Random House, Mallory Loehr, expressed how excited he is by Meghan's first debuted book.


"Meghan's touching text explores the relationship between fathers and sons and undeniably tugs at the heartstrings that parents and caregivers feel."

Loehr believes that the Duchess of Sussex's book will become one of those books that people and family will read for generations.


2021 has been a hectic year for the Duch and Duchess of Sussex. Since they announced their decision to step back as members of the British Royal Family in January 2020.

"We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen."

They have big plans coming, such as the birth of their baby girl next summer, a special Netflix show, commercial contracts, and a Spotify podcast. Harry is also joining a start-up on mental health BetterUp as a 'chief impact officer.'

The Bench isn't the first Meghan's writing project. Back in the days, she was an actress in the US, she used to run a lifestyle website named The Tig. But it shut down after she began dating Harry.
