Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, who, with Prince Harry quit the royal family last year will soon become a published author. She is releasing her first children’s book, “The Bench,” about the importance of family bonds on June 8.
Random House Children’s Books announced the book’s publication on Tuesday. As reported by the Associated Press, the book will be illustrated by award-winning illustrator Christian Robinson with Meghan narrating the audio version.
According to a statement about the book, the story is based on a poem that Meghan wrote for her husband, Prince Harry, on his first Father’s Day after the birth of their son, Archie.
“That poem became this story,” Meghan said. “Christian layered in 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 depict this special bond through an inclusive lens.”
