The Duchess of Sussex is adding author to her post-royal résumé!
Meghan is releasing her debut children's book, titled The Bench, on June 8. The story focuses on the special bond between a father and son, viewed through a mother's eyes. It was inspired by Meghan's own family experience with her husband, Prince Harry, and son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
According to an official press release, the book captures the evolving and expanding relationship between fathers and sons as well as reminds us of the many ways that love can take shape and be expressed in a modern family. The Bench, published by Random House Children's Books, is illustrated by award-winning artist Christian Robinson. Meghan will also narrate the audiobook edition.
Mallory Loehr, the EVP and publisher for Random House Books for Young Readers Group, expressed her excitement for the Duchess of Sussex's literary debut.
Meghan's touching text explores the relationship between fathers and sons and undeniably tugs at the heartstrings that parents and caregivers feel, said Loehr in a statement. Christian's art beautifully matches the tender emotion of Meghan’s words, and every spread is infused with a vibrant sense of joy and love. The Bench is timeless—it feels destined to become one of those books that people will be reading for generations to come.Source: harpersbazaar
