Meghan Markle is about to release a children’s book called “The Bench” inspired by her son Archie’s bond with her son Prince Archie, the Couples Foundation announced on Tuesday.
The book, illustrated by Christian Robinson as Meghan, comes out on 8 June, the Duchess of Sussex, awaiting the birth of her second child.
Meghan said in a statement, “Bench started as a poem written for her husband on Father’s Day, which took place months after Archie’s birth. That poem became this story.”
He added that the book aims to “capture warmth, joy, and comfort in the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life.”
“My hope is that the bench resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it supports me,” she said.
Archie will turn two on Thursday.
Harry and Meghan, whose father is white and mother Black, left the British royal family and moved to California last year.
An explosive television interview he gave to Oprah Winfrey in March – in which he claimed that an unnamed royal had asked how deep his baby’s skin would be – put the monarchy in a major crisis.
A former actress, Meghan, also told Winfrey that she was “naïvely” ready for life as a royal and had contemplated suicide while pregnant with Archie.
Harry had recently returned to Britain for the funeral of Prince Philip, husband of her grandfather, Queen Elizabeth II.
