Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex announces her first Children’s book, The Bench

Actress, Mum, wife, philanthropist, activist and now author. Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex has announced she has written her first children’s book, The Bench.

Inspired by her husband and son, The Bench is all about the special bond between father and son as seen through a mother’s eyes.

Illustrations for the book were created by Caldecott-winning and best-selling artist Christian Robinson.

Discussing the new book Meghan has said “The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born. “That poem became this story. Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolour 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.”ench resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine.”

The audiobook will be narrated by the Duchess.

The Bench will be released 8 June via Penguin Random House.
